Asked from the Albert Camus study pack

Albert Camus, a modern philosopher, uses absurdism because, eventually, through its implementation a remarkable transformation takes place in many. Hope seems to spring from a type of philosophical rebellion. Camus believed that consciousness could be promoted in even the average human being by using the absurd, and that there is a promise of an awakening that, once achieved, is never reversible. Absurdism, itself, is a subsection of existentialism, and they are similar in many respects. Novels where this can be observed include The Stranger, Teh Fall, and the Myty of Sisyphus.
