Product description

Exploring themes that preoccupied Albert Camus - absurdity, silence, revolt, fidelity, and moderation - the author portrays a moralist who refused to be fooled by the nobler names we assign to our actions, and who pushed himself, and those about him, to challenge the status quo. For Camus, rebellion against injustice is the human condition.
