Filosofia Absurdului pe înţelesul omului profan. ( )
  mariusgm | Aug 25, 2013 |
Decisamente impegnativo, soprattutto non avendo messo mano a saggi filosofici per anni (ah, i tempi del liceo); parte dal tema del suicidio per arrivare al tema dell'assurdo contestualizzandolo in campi diversi.
La cosa più notevole comunque è il fatto che tutte queste riflessioni siano state fatte e stese con lucidità quando l'autore era molto giovane (meno di trent'anni). ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

One of the most influential works of this century, this is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide: the question of living or not living in an absurd universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Camus posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.--From publisher description.… (more)
