Albert Camus, Christian Metaphysics and Neoplatonism | Phillip Cary –
When Camus cites an ancient primary source, whether in French translation or in the original language, Srigley substitutes a standard English translation in the interest of making his edition accessible to a wider range of readers.
As the only stand-alone English version of this important work—and a long-overdue critical edition—his fluent translation is an essential cheistian in our understanding of Camus and his place in modern thought.

Lists with This Book. Mar 18, Christian Proano rated it really liked it.
Very interesting analysis, particularly when he actually touches on Plotinus and Augustinianism. The author poses that Christianity had no metaphysics but until it encountered gnosticism and neoplatonism I still think that the best way to appreciate this type of writings is by contrasting it with Yannaras’ “On The Absence and Neoplatohism of God” and “Elements of Faith”.

Albert Camus was a representative of non-metropolitan French literature. His origin in Algeria and his experiences there in the thirties were dominating influences in metaohysics thought and work.

Of semi-proletarian parents, early attached to intellectual circles of strongly revolutionary tendencies, with a deep interest in philosophy only chance prevented him from pursuing a university career in that fieldhe came to France at the age of twenty-five. The man and the times met: Camus joined the resistance movement during the occupation and after the liberation was a columnist for the newspaper Combat.
But his journalistic activities had been chiefly a response to the demands of the time; in Camus retired from political journalism and, besides writing his fiction and essays, was very active in the theatre as producer cjristian playwright e. The essay Le Mythe de Sisyphe The Myth of Sisyphus, expounds Camus’s notion of the absurd and of its acceptance with “the total absence of hope, which has nothing to do with despair, a continual refusal, which must not be confused with renouncement – and a conscious dissatisfaction”.
Rieux of La Peste The Plague, who tirelessly attends the plague-stricken citizens of Oran, enacts the revolt against a world of the absurd and of injustice, and confirms Camus’s words: Without having the unreasonable ambition to save men, we still want to serve them”. His austere search for moral order found its aesthetic correlative in the classicism of his art.
