Product Description

From Amazon

Essai majeur de l'oeuvre d'Albert Camus, L'Homme révolté est un livre prophétique sur la situation politique et sociale de la France des années cinquante. Marquant l'engagement philosophique de Camus, cet ouvrage est une relecture personnelle des grandes étapes de l'esprit de révolte, de la Révolution française à la Révolution russe. Les grands penseurs, de Sade à Nietzsche en passant par Marx ou Saint-Just sont évoqués et analysés, de même que les grands courants de pensée à la marge ou aux extrêmes, des nihilistes aux surréalistes en passant par les anarchistes ou les royalistes.

Grand essai érudit et cultivé, dans l'esprit de l'honnête homme, cet ouvrage aborde la révolte sous ses aspects métaphysique, historique, et artistique. Plus que de toutes autres de ses oeuvres, on retrouve ici exprimée l'évolution de l'esprit contestataire de Camus, qui fait de cet essai un classique absolu. L'Homme révolté est une sorte de Lipstick Traces avant l'heure, en moins rock'n'roll certes mais tout aussi remarquable. --Florent Mazzoleni

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. McIntyre on Jan. 28 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A courageous and extraordinary essay,"The Rebel" (English title) was written at a time when many French intellectuals were either members of the Communist party and/or apologists for Stalin. The moral authority of France's intellectual 'elite' was unquestionably sympathetic to the orthodox Left in the immediate postwar period of the late 40's through the 50's. Camus' essay represents what philosophers Richard Rorty and Jurgen Habermas both envision as the highest vocation for the model citizen: Camus protests "in the name of the society itself against those aspects of the society which are unfaithful to its own self-image." (Rorty, Contigency, irony, and solidarity, 1989, p.60).
