role in culture and politics
Role in Culture and Politics.
  • Albert Camus greatly influenced the politics and culture of his time. He was extremely influenced by the severe harnshness and the atmosphere of war. He often accepted the terms of being called a humanist. Camus represents the philosophical movement called existentialism, which characterizes man's situation in the universe by denying it all personal significance, seeing in it only absurdity. Absurdity occurs often in the works of Camus. Albert Camus also, uses the idea that it is impossible to make rational sense of ones experience and human life is made meaningless by mortality. Camus explores many different themes throughout his works and even his plays. He sees revolt as a peaceful revolutionary process that requires leadership, but not violence. He has wriiten news and journals to the people during the years of the war. At this time he was a self proclaimed pacifist writing openly against war in Europe. He was even asked to leave Algeria in march 1940 having been declared a threat to national security. Camus explores the themes such as alienation, sucicide, rebellion, guilt and innocence throughout his works. These Themes are repeated within all of his writings and he uses these to help explain human rights.
