Abstract:

Referring to Albert Camus' theory of the absurd which proposes a possible pointlessness of life considering the human transience this study focuses on ecstasy and art as means of escape. The philosophical theorems are corroborated by works of literature, beginning with Charles Baudelaire and the French decadence literature, continuing with the German expressionism - especially the writings of Gottfried Benn that had been strongly influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche - and finishing with the modern German drama of Wolfgang Hildesheimer. The study shows that the French existentialism, which is often misinterpreted as nihilism, and especially the works of Camus offer enormous potential for developing an idea of a society based on solidarity and peacefulness.
