Albert Camus: From the Absurd to Revolt

John Foley

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, encompassing philosophy, literature, politics and history, John Foley examines the full breadth of Camus' ideas to provide a comprehensive and rigorous study of his political and philosophical thought and a significant contribution to a range of debates current in Camus research. Foley argues that the coherence of Camus' thought can best be understood through a thorough understanding of the concepts of ‘the absurd’ and ‘revolt’ as well as the relation between them. This book includes a detailed discussion of Camus' writings for the newspaper Combat , a systematic analysis of Camus' discussion of the moral legitimacy of political violence and terrorism, a reassessment of the prevailing postcolonial critique of Camus' humanism, and a sustained analysis of Camus' most important and frequently neglected work, L'Homme revolte (The Rebel).
