culture and politics
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 human life is made meaningless by mortality. Camus explores many different themes throughout his works. 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 anti war demonstrator 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, suicide, rebellion, guilt and innocence throughout his works. These Themes are repeated within all of his writings. Camus uses the theme of alienation to explain the constant isolation in the Story the Guest. It also explores the theme of guilt.
