I hope you enjoyed watching these 7 ways you can make most of your present from the philosophy of Albert Camus and find them helpful in your life. Albert Camus is one of the greatest French writers and thinkers.
He was a philosopher, an author and a journalist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957 and his most famous works are The Stranger, The Plague, The Myth of Sisyphus, The Fall, and The Rebel.
The philosophy of absurdism
Camus is one of the most representative figures of the philosophy of the “absurd” or “absurdism,” which is a philosophical movement having as its central hypothesis that human beings exist in a purposeless, chaotic universe.
How to balance absolute freedom with absolute justice
Camus considered that absolute freedom must be balanced with absolute justice – too much freedom leads to the situation when the strong suppresses the weak but too much justice kills freedom, and we need to live and let live. As a promoter of the philosophy of the “absurd”, Camus believed that life has no meaning, that the universe simply exists and that it is indifferent to people’s lives.
Like Sisyphus from the Greek mythology
We are like Sisyphus from Greek mythology, forever carrying that heavy rock to the top of the hill, although we know the rock will always fall down and our life’s work is meaningless. Our condition might be tragic, but Camus considered that this exact condition hides a blessing in disguise: life does not have a meaning, but we are free to attribute it any meaning we want.
His philosophy has inspired a lot of people in dealing with the absurdity of life and even today, his philosophy is extremely relevant.
