ABSURD WALLS AND HUMAIN CONDITION IN THE WORK OF ALBERT CAMUS

Patrícia Oliveira Machado

Abstract


Albert Camus describe the human condition as contingent, fragile and absurd, for this he uses the notion of " absurd walls " which are situations we confront and from which we can’t escape. If at first, death, old age, inhumanity seem banal experiences in camusian thought, they reveal themselves as possibility of awareness of our absurd condition.

Keywords: absurd; human condition; awareness
