live in revolt - fun reading

by ninthchord on Aug 21, 2010

Camus says suicide is a choice made by those who have found life to be absurd. To Camus, the Absurd is the only thing one can mark as undeniably true; and since it is true, it must be perpetuated. One must live in revolt with the Absurd and without hope. Revolt increases awareness of the experience. On the other hand, suicide is a form of acceptance and only ends the experience with the Absurd. He compares this struggle to Sisyphus's punishment: doomed to push a rock up a hill to eternity. Sisyphus lives without hope but finds gratification in his task each time he returns to fetch the rolling rock.

Tiresome effort to provide reasons for human existance and purpose if any...filled with out dated ideas current in the 1940' longer relavent in an era of deconstructed thought.
