    Le Mythe de Sisyphe The myth of Sisyphus and other essays Albert CamusThe Myth of Sisyphus is a 1942 philosophical essay by Albert Camus In the last chapter Camus outlines the legend of Sisyphus who defied the gods and put Death in chains so that no human needed to die When Death was eventually liberated and it came time for Sisyphus himself to die he concocted a deceit which let him escape from the underworld After finally capturing Sisyphus the gods decided that his punishment would last for all eternity He would have to push a rock up a mountain; upon reaching the top the rock would roll down again leaving Sisyphus to start over Camus sees Sisyphus as the absurd hero who lives life to the fullest hates death and is condemned to a meaningless taskتاریخ نخستین خوانش ماه مارس سال 1972میلادیعنوان افسانه سیزیف؛ آلبر کامو؛ مترجمها خامها و آقایان «علی صدوقی»؛ «محمدعلی سپانلو»؛ «اکبر افسری»؛ «محمدصادق رئیسی»؛ «محمود سلطانیه»؛ «افسانه نجومی»؛ و «مهستی بحرینی»؛ «شهلا شریعتمداری»؛نخستین بار مطبوعاتی فرخی در سال 1342هجری خورشیدی در 154ص، با ترجمه ی جنابان آقایان «محمدعلی سپانلو» و «علی صدوقی»؛مترجم شهلا شریعتمداری، تهران، ناشر نامعلوم، 1350، در 174صمترجم محمود سلطانیه؛ تهران، جامی، 1384؛ در 160ص؛ چاپ پنجم 1392؛مترجم مهستی بحرینی، تهران، نیلوفر؛ 1393، در 175صمترجم محمدصادق رئیسی؛ تهران، روزگار نو، 1398، در 156ص؛خدایان، «سیزیف» را محکوم کرده بودند، که دائما سنگی را به بالای کوهی بغلطاند، تا جاییکه سنگ بخاطر وزنش فرو افتد؛ آنها فکر میکردند تنبیهی وحشتناکتر از انجام کاری عبث و بیهوده، وجود ندارد؛ اما به گفته ی «هومر»، «سیزیف» خردمندترین و محتاط ترین موجود فانی بود؛ باز به گفته ی «هومر»، «سیزیف» مرگ را در زنجیر کرده بود، و این فرمانروایی، خدایان را خوش نمیآمد؛ پس «پلاتو»، خدای جنگ را فرستاد، تا مرگ را از دستان اشغالگر «سیزیف» آزاد سازد؛ ؛گروهی «اسطوره سیزیف» را، یکی از مهم‌ترین آثار فلسفی «آلبر کامو» می‌دانند؛ به باور «کامو»، خودکشی جدی‌ترین مسئله‌ ی فلسفه است، و در واقع پاسخ به همین پرسش است که آیا زندگی ارزش زیستن را دارد؟ زندگی و خودکشی، درون‌مایه ‌ی بخشی از آثار «کامو» هستند که با عنوان «سه‌ گانه ‌ی پوچي» شناخته می‌شوند، کتابهای «بیگانه» یک رمان، «کالیگولا» در قالب نمایشنامه، و «اسطوره سیزیف» یک اثر فلسفی، که هر سه کتاب نشان ‌دهنده‌ی باورهای «کامو» درباره‌ ی «پوچی» هستند؛تاریخ بهنگام رسانی 0406199هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

    By the end of high school I was a very unhappy person and had been so since our family moved from unincorporated Kane County to Park Ridge Illinois when I was ten At the outset the unhappiness was basically conseuent upon leaving a rural setting small school and friendly integrated working class neighborhood for a reactionary suburb large school and unfriendly upper middle class populace whose children were by and large just as thoughtlessly racist and conservative as their parents were By fifteen however the uality of the unhappiness had begun to change as I had made really made some friends in the persons of Richard Hyde and Hank Kupjack By the end of high school thanks to them and to the rise of the sixties counterculture I actually had many friends some of them from the political left some identified with the avant garde world some just plain disgruntled teen potheads But by then unhappiness had become character and had been elevated from an emotional to a philosophical state of beingOn the one hand it had a lot to do with not having had a girlfriend since Lisa in the first grade On the other hand and this was prominently to mind it had to do with the reasons the serious reasons for not having one They were that I was unusually slow in physical development and unusually short in stature In my mind I was uncontestably unattractive If any girl would like me it would be because of personality and intelligenceI had no insecurity about intelligence as a teen but uite a bit about personality Feminism didn't become an issue until college but I was ashamed about thinking of women sexually when it seemed clear they would be offended or disgusted were they to know of it I developed the practice of not looking at females unless speaking with them I walked with my head down eyes to the ground in order to avoid such guilt ridden gazes While other guys played around with the girls in our circle I maintained a generally grave persona holding serious conversations or reading while they flirted A feeling of superiority was confusedly mixed with strong feelings of inferiority to these other comfortable persons While it was easy to dismiss most of the straight kids at school as mindless this was not possible with many persons in our circle particularly some of the older ones whom I admired for their learning and critical intellectsThe other philosophically deeper dimension of this unease was that I myself was so critically intelligent that I had no ground upon which to stand I had strong moral feelings but I was unable to convince myself that they were than personal tastes My early public school education had emphasized the sciences While I could understand human values as having some meaning in terms of biology and evolutionary theory I could not fit myself positively into that picture I certainly wasn't biologically fit Thoughts of suicide were freuentThus I was drawn upon being exposed to them to the existentialists particularly Camus They alone seemed to be trying to speak openly about the actual human conditionI recall reading The Myth of Sisyphus while seated in our family's red Opel Cadet station wagon across from City Hall at the curb of Hodge's Park on a beautiful spring day Our friends were all about this area between Bob Rowe's Evening Pipe Shop Park Ridge's Community Church and the Cogswell Dance Studio our indoors hangouts but I was avoiding their frivolity engaged in serious study while obviously inviting an invitation to join in which in my moral confusion I might well have declinedJust as I was concluding this essay of the collection the part about Sisyphus being happy with his absurd work Lisa Cox walked in front of the car headed west towards the church Now Lisa was just another pretty girl in our group not the particular object of any attention from me Indeed she was too young being two years behind in school But not being an intimate friend she was one of those girls I would tend to guiltily objectify as sexualHere however it happened differently She was beautiful simply beautiful Her long tightly waved brown hair and matching corduroy pants all bathed in sunlight dappled by the new leaves of the elms filling the park were lovely I didn't feel guilty for thinking this I noticed the absence of guilt feelings It seemed uite paradoxical just as Camus' comment about Sisyphus had appeared but trueI'd call this an ecstatic experience It didn't last than a few minutes at most though the memory of it and experiences like it remains clear and cherished

    When I picked up this beloved old book this morning after awakening from a painfully fitful sleep the words in it seemed to be my own They are all that clearly familiar to me after so many years away from themSo it goes with life As we approach the years of our old age the routine of our life falls into place without our even trying if we have been paying attention to itThat’s because the way we now live our life is something obvious like the habits of a dear old friend There are few surprises Things are lucidWe have become as Auden says so well like the etched strata of a limestone cliff for we have become our Faults friendly ualities with which we are now as familiar as with the back of our handSo it is with that apparition which Camus here calls the worm in our heart For that is the very heart of the evil in our worldThe worm in the heart is self interest It suspends our disbelief in our personal stories We start believing in a self who has continuity and is progressing over time Towards what?Nothing really our pleasure in our life stories persuade us that they’re true But Camus is saying that to see the truth we have to come to grips with emptiness and face the end of our stories We have to wake up to a life emptied of frills and diversions That is his counter attack on the worm’s self aggrandizing illusionsOthers have undertaken that same attack on their egos I think of Bach and his dour middle period of penitential music I believe he successfully eliminated his Daemon of pride in his Pietist practises as was reflected in this beautiful mournful musicHow we choose the inevitable flight from that too lucid apparition will decide our destiny After that our habits become something we can modifyWhen I was a very young teen in the throes of coming of age I in my fear chose the framework of a Christian mindset with which to judge my urges and I’m glad I did It has served me very ably Unfortunately my young mind was too predisposed to dreaming to interpret this mindset as anything other than mystical and dream likeAs Gérard de Nerval sang so wellJ’ai deux fois vainueur traversé l’Acheron Modulant tour à tour sur la lyre d’Orphee Les soupirs de la Sainte et les cris de la féeIn fact it is the polar opposite of the affective this conscious wide awake awareness for it’s intensely practicalIt is the very beginning of an annulment of emotional involvement in our stories eventually resulting in a natural and real loveI can verify that now in light of the habitual ease of my generally virtuous habits however jarringly at odds with reality they may seem to my contemporariesAll well and good so far But there’s a problem hereFor though the Framework of my thoughts was useful and viable my habitual responses to that worm in the heart were notI always chose A Dark FLIGHT from that Worm Camus says we all do when I could have chosen a Lucid FIGHT to be Perfectly Conscious of itFor if we answer the Lucidity of the Worm with the Lucidity of Conscious Awareness we will still like the rest of the human race veer in our unguarded moments towards weakness and disasterBut here’s the thing by lucid awareness of the worm’s nonbeing we can make the whole scenario transparent to our own habitual subconscious thinkingAs Camus does by making the monsters of nothingness dissolveAnd what happens when the Worm is seen through?Our life gains a New uality PeaceTHAT is what happens when as Eliot says “the Kingfisher’s wing answers Light to Light and is Silent”Did you get that? The King shines the Light of Heaven on our lucid struggle with a Very Lucid EnemyAnd His Silence thereafter is our PeaceAnd a Sign of His BlessingFor as the psalmist says “Ce goût du néant est seulement le goût du mensonge”And That’s how our old age can become transparent With a sense of humdrum tranuilityAnd a return to daytime normalcy after the midnight nightmares of the worm

    No matter in what farthest corner of the world you live which color is of your skin what kind of habits you’ve grown over the time for you to be known as a busy person what are the erogenous fantasies your mind weave in the moments of uiet to make you tremble with pleasure which from many doctrines you chose to scale the things as “right” and “wrong” which one from countless delusions you’ve opted as religion or you weren’t the one to opt it you inherited it like other concrete property to which fairy god you sold your reason in exchange of a fabricated assurance of hereafter and a hoax of a succor for your inner void it is absurd to find meaning in the meaninglessness of life to keep asking uestions for which there’s no answer because life doesn’t offer any there’s nothing like “truth” in this senseless world Camus puts it as “That universal reason practical or ethical that determinism those categories that explain everything are enough to make a decent man laugh” MS 21So one is inclined to ask is life worth living? If not why don’t we cease to exist as there’s no meaning to keep going on a path which leads to nowhere but right at the point we started our journey from if there’s no hope of life after this one why to live this one to begin with and this leads us to ‘existential anxiety’ for Camus it is only when one abandons hope one can live to one’s fullest 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here' and live because we are our fate and our frustration is our very life we can never escape it and conseuently the truly one philosophical uestion “suicide” must be out of uestion simply not an option because if life’s not worth living for someone who strives to have a meaning so is death there’s no point in committing suicide because it entails that one is uitting to something he couldn’t grasp let we be indifferent to what that simply doesn’t make a differenceSo did our absurd hero Sisyphus who was punished by gods for airing secrecy he was to lift a boulder heaviest than skies on his shoulders and climb the mountain by reaching up the boulder will roll down with Godspeed and Sisyphus had to watch it all the while lift the boulder ascent the mountain watch it rolling down for eternity But the pleasure lies in knowing Sisyphus knew the meaninglessness of his act the absurdity of doing it again and again with no hope in way with passion every time he goes down to lift the boulder with new intensity never resigning himself to despair because despair roots out from presence of hope if there’s no hope otherwise certainly never is there despair And for Camus Sisyphus' triumph is his act of this absurdity “His scorn of the gods his hatred of death and his passion for life won him that unspeakable penalty in which the whole being is exerted toward accomplishing nothing” MS 120

    Assisted LivingIt was that Jewish heretic Paul of Tarsus who gave us the idea that we are not in charge of our lives but are merely responsible for them to God who owns us It was the English philosopher John Locke a heretic to Pauline Calvinism who casually pointed out that in fact our lives are the only thing we do have complete charge over the only thing every one of us owns and can dispose of And it was Albert Camus a heretic to any and all sources of power who took Locke entirely seriously by pointing out that how we dispose of life is the central issue of not just life but philosophy The result is SisyphusThe followers of previous heretics evangelical Christians PC and wet liberals don't like Camus But they can't fault his conclusions They may not approve of his marketing of suicide as a universally available option for disposing of life but these are the same people who don't approve of gay sex or the discussion of religion in public So hardly credible Clearly Camus's analysis includes both Paul's and Locke's as special cases and is therefore superior to them both Camus doesn't advocate suicide; he does advocate its importance to life and thought Without it we are dead as it were all but physically Habit and chance rule Life is not inherently absurd but becomes so when death specifically self inflicted death is not on the table Evasions illusion after life hope consuming power sex reputation become the norm that is socially enforced Eliminating evasions is what Camus is trying to doThere is rarely a page in Sisyphus without a phrase to savour and as memorable as anything in Montaigne Just for openersp2 I have never seen anyone die for the ontological argumentp3 Beginning to think is beginning to be underminedp4 A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar worldSo even if the logic gets you down you have some rather sustaining prose to exchange with the spouse or functional euivalent over breakfast

    A good friend introduced me to Nietzsche in my early teens and Nietzsche and I have had a turbulent relationship ever since One of the first adult books I read was Kafka's The Trial and Nietzsche was there too inviting me to step off the city on poles into the bottomless swamp Oh baby hold my handwe're gonna walk on water Nietzsche said there are no facts no truth After he said this some philosophers stopped writing like Kant and wrote like poets Camus says here that 'there is no truth merely truths From the evening breeze to this hand on my shoulder' Consciousness creates a 'shimmer' of truthsIf there is no god and we are all condemned to death and I am conscious then my life is absurd Existentialists arrived here and made their leaps of faith to gods Karl Popper made the leap of faith to reason reason is Popper's god There is no a priori argument for reason but Camus does not want to leap he asks if we can live with what we have this absurd life and not kill ourselves Nietzsche said we make art in order not to commit suicide Camus tells us that Dostoyevsky found his 'leap' here if we cannot bear to live without belief in an immortal soul then the immortal soul must beCamus will not leap and he will not choose suicide he decides we can live with what we have if we remain lucid and conscious and don't succumb to illusion After Camus some artists created in order to provoke and maintain the absurd consciousness This is the effect Beckett gets I think in Waiting for Godot The sleeplessness the watchfulness the silliness of Camus' absurdityI have myself been tempted by the leap to reason or the immortal soul But in the main I have lived after Nietzsche without much anguish I do not find it so hard to 'imagine Sisyphus happy' to watch with Camus as he walks down to the valley of hell after his rock to start over stronger than the rock then striding unencumbered I've been busy and the birds have sung and food has tasted good and love has touched me These White men who had so little to do that they were overwhelmed by grief for lost illusions might have felt better after baking a loaf or sweeping out the house In all seriousnessCamus gives three sketches of 'absurd men' Don Juan and the conueror I have no use for as with much of this book I discard them as too mired in patriarchy to use without starting again But the sketch of the actor sings out to me 'What matters' said Nietzsche 'is not eternal life but eternal vivacity' All drama is in fact in this choice Not because we should live as though in the limelight or even because there is no rehearsal no eternal return but because in drama the shimmer of truth is shared Camus does not seem to have thought of this his absurd man is oh tragically alone again I advise him bath the baby wash the linen But in the theatre we are not alone we are fish in the water of each other's truths we can live them in these mirrors As another philosopher said there has never been one person


  7. Ian "Marvin" Graye Ian "Marvin" Graye says:

    The One True Philosophical Problem The Myth of Sisyphus purports to be about the one truly philosophical problem of suicidePerhaps it's a little sensationalist to define the problem in these terms at least in the 21st century Even Camus himself immediately restated the problem as judging whether life is or is not worth livingMaybe another way is to ask whether if life is not worth living does it follow that we should cease to live eg by committing suicide? It's interesting how we commit four things errors crimes sins suicideCamus tends to assume that in the absence of God there is no meaning of life at least no superimposed objective meaning of lifeThus for him the resulting absurdity is the starting point not the result of a deductive processIf life is truly meaningless the uestion is how to respond?Do we revert to the meaning of life posited by religion and a supernatural being an irrational response? Do we commit suicide in order to escape the absence of meaning the result of despair? Or do we embrace the absurdity implicit in an absence of meaning without accepting it revolt? Franz von Stuck's Sisyphus 1920The ConfrontationFor Camus we long for meaning Yet we don't readily find it Partly because it isn't there The absurd is born of the confrontation between the human need and the unreasonable silence of the world 29The absurd is a divorce It lies in neither of the elements compared; it is born of their confrontationAnd what is the confrontation between? In effect the Absurd is not in mannor in the world but in their presence together 30 Absurdity describes a relationship between the twoNot just is the Absurd a confrontation but it is also an unceasing struggle which struggle implies a total absence of hope a continual rejection and a conscious dissatisfactionA man devoid of hope and conscious of being so has ceased to belong to the future 31Arguably a man with no hope has no reason to continue living into the future Without hope what awaits us is inevitable death which awaits us anyway with or without hopeThe EscapeCamus considers that all existentialist attempts to deal with the Absurd suggest escapethey deify what crushes them and find reason to hope in what impoverishes themHe maintains that nothing logically prepares this reason I can call it a leap Paradoxically it shares something with a religious leap of faith we turn towards God only to obtain the impossible As for the possible men suffice 33Nevertheless the leap is an escape By it we seek to elude the AbsurdEnduranceIn contrast Camus argues that living is keeping the absurd alive 47We must keep it alive so that we can confront and endure it To do so we must revolt against it It is a constant confrontation between man and his own obscurity It is an insistence upon an impossible transparencymetaphysical revolt extends awareness to the whole of experienceRevolt gives life its value Spread out over the whole of a life it restores its majesty to that life To a man devoid of blinkers there is no finer sight than that of the intelligence at grips with a reality that transcends it47Camus' solution therefore is consciousness and revolt 48Suicide is an illusory solution It is essential to die unreconciled to the Absurd and not of one's own free will 49The RevoltAccording to Camus man must never surrender or give in We must live without appeal to some greater natural or supernatural authority Only then are we truly free and responsible 52Camus sees the future inevitably as an invitation to death However he converts the revolt the refusal to commit suicide into a rule of lifeThe Absurd therefore gives us three ualities our revolt our freedom and our passion for life over death 55Camus distinguishes between renunciation and revolt Renunciation is an irrational denial of the absurd eg like religion Camus writes consciousness and revolt these rejections are the contrary of renunciation Rejection doesn't deny the existence of the absurd whereas renunciation doesThe Point is to LiveThese arguments define a metaphysical process a way of thinking However Camus concludes The point is to live 56 We must live without appeal but informed of our limits 57It is essential to elude nothing There is thus a metaphysical honour in enduring the world's absurdity Conuest or play acting multiple loves absurd revolt are tributes that man pays to his dignity in a campaign in which he is defeated in advance 77There is honour in battle honour in confrontation honour in revoltMetaphysical Art and LiteratureCamus finds sustenance in art The great novelists are philosophical novelistswhat distinguishes modern sensibility from classical sensibility is that the latter thrives on moral problems and the former on metaphysical problems 85For me the focus on the metaphysical points to a bridge between modernism and post modernism Both are separate from the realist focus on morality on problems of good and evil Art is fundamental to our pursuit of freedom in the short time we have on earth In art we find not the divine fable that amuses and blinds but the terrestrial face gesture and drama in which are summed up a difficult wisdom and an ephemeral passion 95Art captures the ephemeral flame that burns passionate and bright for the duration of our short sojourn The Myth of SisyphusIt's here that Camus introduces the myth of Sisyphus The burden of Sisyphus is his fate Perhaps it is a futile and hopeless labour However all Sisyphus' silent joy is contained therein His fate belongs to him His rock is his thing 98In the same way the absurd man when he contemplates his torment silences all the idols the illusions that encourage him to elude Absurdity There is no sun without shadow and it is essential to know the nightHe who recognises this will be the master of his days The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart One must imagine Sisyphus happy 99So too we must imagine Sisyphus happy if we are to be happy because ultimately our burden is the sameSOUNDTRAKSoul II Soul Get a Life II Soul Keep On Movin'


  8. Steven Godin Steven Godin says:

    This was a fascinating insight into a thought provoking uestion Albert Camus suggests that suicide amounts to a confession that life is not worth living He links this confession to what he calls the feeling of absurdity that on the whole we go through life with meaning and purpose with a sense that we do things for good and profound reasons Occasionally however for some at least we might come to see our daily lives dictated primarily by the forces of habit thus bringing into uestion the following if one feels that the embodiment of freedom is lost to a drone like existence all of our actions and reasons for them to a degree become pointless with a feeling of absurdity linked to meaningless meaningless to death by ones own hand Camus in basic terms simply implies that we start to live before the habit of thinking on a deep level takes hold thus avoiding the conseuences of the meaningless nature of life through what Camus calls an act of eluding we choose not to think about the absurd because our nature is built on that of hopes and dreams for a meaningful life rather than face the conseuences of staring into the voidOne the main attributes used throughout his fiction that of exile is also included heavily as a comparative for this essay No one else but Camus could have wrote this work as soon as you enter his world the world around you becomes less apparent

    Le Penseur de Bernard et Clotilde Barto near La Médiathèue Jacues Demy Nantes Right after Promise at Dawn La Promesse de l'Aube I wrap up The myth of Sisyphus and come out eventually disheartened by the mighty silence ruling over the studio in Lorient In spare words this is a study on the absurd The onset is is life worth living? The subject is tailored to make you react to it and decide where you standOn the whole I don't align with Camus I am astounded by the sternness of his observations Indeed they are accountable to the aim Camus sets but they entirely negate joy and ivresse together with whatever personal purpuse and illusion they may bear to youCamus writes What is absurd is the meeting of the irrational with the craving and the call for clarity which resonates in the innermost depths of man Ce ui est absurde c'est la confrontation de cet irrationnel et de ce désir éperdu de clarté dont l'appel résonne au plus profond de l'homme Le mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p36 If I were a tree among trees a cat among animals life would have purpose or to put it in other words this problem wouldn't have because I would be part of the world I would be the world against which I set myself with my whole conscience and by my reuiring it to be kindred Si j'étais arbre parmi les arbres chat parmi les animaux cette vie aurait un sens ou plutôt ce problème n'en aurait point car je ferais partie de ce monde Je serais ce monde auuel je m'oppose maintenant par toute ma conscience et par toute mon exigence de familiaritéLe mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p76Although where did Camus's absurd man come from? Like a tree among trees he comes from a state of implied oneness with the world he once lived in oneness This state is by no means gratuitous Once there was a link a kinship with the world now reigns silence This is I guess what could lead to such derelictionCamus states Absurd is born of the meeting of the human desire with the insensate silence of the world L'absurde naît de la confrontation de l'appel humain avec le silence déraisonnable du mondeLe mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p46It sounds short sighted though the world may well be insensate unreasonable irrationnal but this delirium is by no means silentLet us agree the world has no meaning whatsoever by itself But to hold to you can't construe a personal makeshift limited purpose out of the world as you meet people in this delirium is untrue And out of the meager purpose that could weld out of this insensate world I know friendship is the most tangible and vital happeningSo like Chestov and Husserl who did consent to considerable crookedness to ram in their demonstrations and force their conclusions as to where I stand I think Camus's scepticism have him discard some elementary truths to uphold the passion of the absurd to the end Je boucle le mythe de Sisyphe après La promesse de l'aube et j'en ressors accablé par le silence souverain d'un studio à LorientJe ne rejoins pas entièrement Camus dans des observations ui me surprennent par leur aridité d'ensemble explicables par le but u'il se donne mais ui nient la joie avec ce u'elle comporte d'ivresse de sens propre à chacun d'illusion si on veut Camus écrit Ce ui est absurde c'est la confrontation de cet irrationnel et de ce désir éperdu de clarté dont l'appel résonne au plus profond de l'homme Le mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p36Si j'étais arbre parmi les arbres chat parmi les animaux cette vie aurait un sens ou plutôt ce problème n'en aurait point car je ferais partie de ce monde Je serais ce monde auuel je m'oppose maintenant par toute ma conscience et par toute mon exigence de familiaritéLe mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p76Et pourtant comme l'arbre parmi les arbres l'homme absurde de Camus était parti d'un état d'unité tacite avec le monde Ce premier état n'a rien de négligeable Là où il y avait d'abord un lien le silence ensuite Voilà ce ui paraît conduire à la perte de sens Camus soutient L'absurde naît de la confrontation de l'appel humain avec le silence déraisonnable du mondeLe mythe de Sisyphe Folio essais 1942 p46Il n'y a u'un malheur si le monde est déraisonnable ce délire fait de chimères d'ivresses et de rencontres n'a rien de silencieuxLe monde n'a aucun sens intelligible par lui même mettons De là à soutenir u'on ne peut pas construire un sens provisoire au monde au cours des rencontres il y a loin et du sens ui filtre de ce monde déraisonnable l'amitié me paraît la manifestation la plus tangible et la plus vivanteComme Chestov et Husserl ui consentent à des entorses considérables pour aboutir de force à leurs conclusions je crois aujourd'hui ue le scepticisme de Camus le pousse à sacrifier uelues vérités élémentaires pour soutenir la passion de l'absurde jusu'à son terme logiue
