Within the Stranger Albert Camus brought up many questions and a few answers He created an outsider to society and showed us how he lived Meursault Meursault was always indifferent Meursault accepted death Why Meursault saw the purpose of life meaningless That is Absurdity Absurdity how does that word sound Pretty bad eh Absurdity when used like thats absurd gives the feeling of negative judgment and a sense of finality The idea of the Absurd seems to attach itself with meaningless pointless and other such words that express a destination but without the means to get there and vice versa means but no destination So from there I inferred that Camus does not believe in God nor any high law or universal law that are associated with a divinity which is a path in life either the means or the destination So what is Absurd The Absurd is living a quest to find the meaning of anything within a reality with no purpose Reality has no purpose because there is no high law a universal law nor a God Therefore this reality must be randomness I believe that Camus wants us to see this and begin questioning our existence So he wants he wants us to see the Absurdity and to cope with the Absurdity If there is no point to living why do we continue to live If this reality is absurd why dont we recognize that and commit suicide Taking ones life shows the lack of will or reasons to live and also the needlessness of suffering So what is living Living is the Absurd Living is hopelessness Living is keeping the absurd alive To keep the absurd alive you only have to live the absurd Life will be more fully lived in so far as it has no meaning is a quote from Camus that shows this Camus shows that you can hope for the best without hope Hope is not
