Abstract:

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, encompassing philosophy, literature, politics and history, John Foley examines the full breadth of Camus's ideas to provide a comprehensive and rigorous study of his political and philosophical thought and a significant contribution to a range of debates current in Camus research. Foley argues that the coherence of Camus thought can best be understood through a thorough understanding of the concepts of the absurd and revolt as well as the relation between them. The book includes a detailed discussion of Camus's writings for the newspaper Combat, a systematic analysis of Camus's discussion of the moral legitimacy of political violence and terrorism, a reassessment of the prevailing postcolonial critique of Camus humanism, and a sustained analysis of Camus's most important and frequently neglected work, L'Homme révolté (The Rebel).
