Talk:Albert Camus

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Although he was often labeled an existentialist, Camus claimed that he was not, and asserted that he was a member of no specific ideology or school of thought. His philosophical contributions mostly concern what he called "The Absurd," which encompasses the supposed meaninglessness and insignificance of human life in the universe.

It's confusing to say he contributed to existentialism but was "labeled" and that he claimed he was not an existentialist. What's that supposed to mean?

And did his ideas about The Absurd have anything to do with existentialism? --Ed Poor Talk 15:53, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
