      • Albert Camus Justin O'Brien JamesWood

        Albert Camus 1913 1960 was a representative of non metropolitan French literature His origin in Algeria and his experiences there in the thirties were dominating influences in his 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 field , he 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 1947 Camus retired from political journalism and, besides writing his fiction and essays, was very active in the theatre as producer and playwright e.g Caligula, 1944 He also adapted plays by Calderon, Lope de Vega, Dino Buzzati, and Faulkner s Requiem for a Nun His love for the theatre may be traced back to his membership in L Equipe, an Algerian theatre group, whose collective creation R volte dans les Asturies 1934 was banned for political reasons.The essay Le Mythe de Sisyphe The Myth of Sisyphus , 1942, 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 Meursault, central character of L tranger The Stranger , 1942, illustrates much of this essay man as the nauseated victim of the absurd orthodoxy of habit, later when the young killer faces execution tempted by despair, hope, and salvation Dr Rieux of La Peste The Plague , 1947, 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 We refuse to despair of mankind Without having the unreasonable ambition to save men, we still want to serve them Other well known works of Camus are La Chute The Fall , 1956, and L Exil et le royaume Exile and the Kingdom , 1957 His austere search for moral order found its aesthetic correlative in the classicism of his art He was a stylist of great purity and intense concentration and rationality.

    1. چگونه می‌توان از پوچی لذت برد؟ تا زمانی‌که کسی فالوده‌ی شیرازی می‌خورد، این مساله وجود دارد.پوچی از نظر کامو چیست؟ یک زندگی کاملا یکنواخت، بدون هدف و مقصود، بدون معنا، بدون خلاقیت و تغییر، بدون پیشرفت و توام با یاس و ناامیدی.سوال اصلی این کتاب چیست؟ این است که آیا بعد از درک [...]

    3. By the end of high school I was a very unhappy person and had been so since our family moved from unincorporated Kane County to Park Ridge, Illinois when I was ten. At the outset the unhappiness was basically consequent upon leaving a rural setting, small school and friendly, integrated working-class neighborhood for a reactionary suburb, large school and unfriendly upper middle-class populace whose children were, by and large, just as thoughtlessly racist and conservative as their parents were. [...]


    4. No matter in what farthest corner of the world you live, which color is of your skin, what kind of habits you’ve grown over the time for you to be known as a busy person, what are the erogenous fantasies your mind weave in the moments of quiet to make you tremble with pleasure, which, from many doctrines you chose to scale the things as “right” and “wrong” which one from countless delusions you’ve opted as religion, or you weren’t the one to opt it, you inherited it like other conc [...]


    5. A good friend introduced me to Nietzsche in my early teens, and Nietzsche and I have had a turbulent relationship ever since. One of the first adult books I read was Kafka's The Trial and Nietzsche was there too, inviting me to step off the city on poles into the bottomless swamp.Oh baby hold my handwe're gonna walk on waterNietzsche said there are no facts, no truth. After he said this, some philosophers stopped writing like Kant and wrote like poets. Camus says here that 'there is no truth, me [...]


    6. من عصیان می کنم، پس هستم.یکی از بهترین آثار کامو که تا حالا خوندم، توضیحات کامل و جامع و همچنین بیان تفکرات کامو درباره ی Absurd که به نوع خودش عالیه. به اشتباه کامو رو اگزیستانسیالیت میدونن که در واقع ابسردیست بوده. و نکته مهم و کاربردیِ دیگه ای که این کتاب برای من داشت این بود که [...]


    7. As soon as the character of The Stranger abandoned to his sad fate, the desire to stay a little while in the company of Albert Camus came naturally.From a chronological point of view, the choice of the essay The Myth of Sisyphus, also published in 1942 in the framework of the tetralogy "The cycle of the absurd", seems self-evident."There is only one serious philosophical problem: it is suicide." In spite of this first sentence, the end of which smacks like a whip, this essay does not make the ap [...]


    8. The One True Philosophical Problem"The Myth of Sisyphus" purports to be about the "one truly philosophical problem [of] suicide".Perhaps, it's a little sensationalist to define the problem in these terms, at least in the 21st century. Even Camus himself immediately restated the problem as "judging whether life is or is not worth living".Maybe another way is to ask whether, if life is not worth living, does it follow that we should cease to live, e.g by committing suicide? (It's interesting how w [...]


    9. This was a fascinating insight into a thought provoking question, Albert Camus suggests that suicide amounts to a confession that life is not worth living. He links this confession to what he calls the "feeling of absurdity", that on the whole, we go through life with meaning and purpose, with a sense that we do things for good and profound reasons. Occasionally, however for some at least, we might come to see our daily lives dictated primarily by the forces of habit, thus bringing into question [...]


    10. نميتونم در مورد كامو و يا فلسفه ش حرفى بزنم چون ترجمه كتاب انقد نامفهوم و گاهى انقد خنده دار بود كه نميتونستم حرفهاى كامو رو بفهمم، به نظر مياد اين كتاب چرك نويس ترجمه باشه و نه ترجمه نهايى، نميدونم ايا اين اولين كتابيه كه خانوم بحرينى دست گرفتن و يا چرا كتابى به اين سختى رو انت [...]


    11. ‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، در این کتابِ 200 صفحه ای، <آلبر کامو> به مسائلی چون یک تعقل پوچ- انسانِ پوچ- خلقتِ پوچ و در پایان به افسانهٔ <سیزیف> پرداخته است و البته خودش هدف از نوشتن این کتاب را رابطهٔ میانِ "پوچی" و "خودکشی" میداند و اینکه خودکشی راه حلی مناسب است برایِ پوچی------------------- [...]


    12. عنوان الكتاب هو أسطورة سيزيف وسيزيف هو الشاب اليوناني الذي حكمت عليه آلهة اليونان بعقاب غريب ومؤلم للغايةوهو أن يجلس تحت سفح جبل عال تعلوه صخرة عملاقة ثم تسقط الصخرة فجأة فوق رأس الشاب إلا انها تتوقف قبل رأسه بأمتار قليلة ولك ان تتخيل رعب الشاب وهو ينظر ويجد الصخرة تهوي فوق [...]


    13. Assisted LivingIt was that Jewish heretic Paul of Tarsus who gave us the idea that we are not in charge of our lives but are merely responsible for them to God who owns us. It was the English philosopher John Locke, a heretic to Pauline Calvinism, who casually pointed out that in fact our lives are the only thing we do have complete charge over, the only thing every one of us owns and can dispose of. And it was Albert Camus, a heretic to any and all sources of power, who took Locke entirely seri [...]


    14. Albert Camus (1913–1960) is not a philosopher so much as a novelist with a strong philosophical bent. He is most famous for his novels of ideas, such as The Stranger and The Plague, both of which are set in the arid landscape of his native Algeria.Camus studied philosophy at the University of Algiers, which brought him into contact with two of the major branches of twentieth century philosophy: existentialism and phenomenology. Existentialism arises from an awareness that there is no pre-ordai [...]


    15. برای خوندن این کتاب نیاز به پیش زمینه های بیشتری داشتم،جوری که احساس می کنم هنوز وقتش نشده.البته اگه ترجمه سخت و غلط های املایی زیادشو نادیده بگیریم.از نظر کامو نه انسان پوچه و نه دنیا بلکه رابطه ی بین ماست که پوچی رو میسازه.کامو معتقده پی بردن به پوچی مساوی با آغاز بلوغه و در ا [...]


    16. ‎‫‏‬‬‬‬‬‬‬“It happens that the stage sets collapse. Rising, streetcar, four hours in the office or the factory, meal, streetcar, four hours of work, meal, sleep, and Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and Saturday according to the same rhythm – this path is easily followed most of the time. But one day the “why” arises and everything begins in that weariness tinged with amazement.”I love Camus! I just LOVE him!He has that weird ability to draw my full attentio [...]


    17. "Nu există decât o problemă filosofică într-adevăr importantă: sinuciderea. A hotărî dacă viată merită sau nu trăită înseamnă a răspunde la problema fundamentală a filosofiei!" Aşa priveşte Camus, iar raţionamentul lui este destul de simplu: dat fiind că problema crucială a filosofiei este aceea de a hotărî dacă viată merită sau nu trăită, nu are rost -e absurd!- să mergi cu gândirea mai departe. De ce? Pentru că, dacă răspunsul dat ar fi "nu", toate raţioname [...]


    18. Birçok sayfada kendimi buldum. Sorgulayan ve farkındanlık ile yoğrulmuş bir bilincin mutlaka içinde kendine bir pay bulabileceği bir baş yapıt


    19. آلبر کامو در ۷ نوامبر ۱۹۱۳ در دهکده‌ای کوچک در الجزایر به دنیا آمد. پدرش «لوسین کامو» یک سال بعد از به دنیا آمدن او در نبرد مارن در جنگ جهانی اول کشته شد و از آن به بعد او همراه با مادرش (که اصالتاً اسپانیایی بود) به خانهٔ مادر مادری‌اش در الجزیره می‌رود. خانوادهٔ کامو جزو آن دس [...]


    20. Hallelujah, I've finished. I think this was the slowest pace at which I read a book since joining . For now (and possibly for eternity), three points:1. if I were Sisyphus, a good punishment the gods could deal out to me would be to ceaselessly make me re-read this for eternity;2. as much as I struggled with this book, I don't regret picking it up - as Calvino says, Every new book I read comes to be a part of that overall and unitary book that is the sum of my readings things won't be so easy fo [...]


    21. I read this book shortly after Albert Camus' death when he was at the height of his popularity. As I was in high school, it may have been the first philosophical work that that I ever read. By the time I arrived at university three years later, the academics were hooting at it. The pedants asserted that the work demonstrated only the extent to which Camus the novelist was out of his depth as a philosopher.I do not think that many of the profs from my era foresaw that Camus' works would have a bi [...]


    22. Με τη φιλοσοφία γενικότερα δεν τα πάω και πολύ καλα Έμ, καλα να πάθω θα μου πείτε αφού επέλεξα να διαβασω το συγκεκριμμένο δοκίμιο.Κάπου συμφωνούσα και μπορούσα να καταλάβω τον συλλογισμό του και κάπου το έχαναΔεν ξερω τι να πω Ίσως παραμεγάλωσα για φιλοσοφικού περιεχομένο [...]


    23. نصف کتاب رو خوندم، حوصله م سر رفت ولش کردم.اولین کتابی که در طول عمرم نصفه رهاش کردم ، افتخارش هم نصیب آقای کامو شد.متاسفانه هرگز فلسفه ی نوشته های این نویسنده رو درک نکردم :(


    24. يه جاهاييشو هرچقد ميخوندم نميفهميدم و الان كه تمومش كردم مثه پازلى ميمونه كه چندتيكه ش گم شده و هرچند شكل كلى پازل پيداس اما دلم ميخواس تكميل تكميل ميشد . يه جاهايى جمله ها تو ذهنم نمينشستن ، نميدونم بازم مترجمو مقصر بدونم يا مشكل ذهن خودم بوده به هرحال خيلى هم با پوچى سروكار ن [...]


    25. Mythology is a passion of mine and has been ever since I was a younger child - an age when I had much greater clarity of mind than I do now and was hampered less by outward influences. Therefore, to see Albert Camus write a sequence of differing essays which explore existentialism (whether he was truly an 'existentialist' is a matter of debate and conjecture but he was interested in existentialist concepts) in a manner that connects back to mythology was fascinating.For those who are unaware, th [...]


    26. Una maravilla de libro que me permite seguir descubriendo a este genio de la literatura mundial. Camus desarrolla un ensayo de alto vuelo filosófico sobre el Absurdo a partir de una galería de personajes literarios, pensadores y escritores, entre ellos Sísifo, Kafka, Nietzche, Kierkegaard, Kirilov de Los Demonios, y Don Juan entre otros; uniendo literatura con filosofía, ahondando en la temática del suicidio y mostrándonos su particular visión existencialista sobre estos temas que son par [...]


    27. سیزیف و کاری که انجام میده که همون غلتاندن تخته سنگی تا قله ی کوه و سرانجام دوباره افتادن سنگ نماد پوچیه. اما چیزی که سرنوشت سیزیف رو غمگین میکنه آگاهی هستش که به این پوچ داره با این دید خیلی از کارای ما در آینده در نظرمون پوچه همینطور که الان این حس رو نسبت به گذشته داریم اما به [...]


    28. Cu siguranță asta nu este cea mai bună alegere pentru zilele în care absurditatea cotidiană îți macină sufletul încet, încet și primul gând al dimineții este "pentru ce?".


    29. مقاله های فلسفی به این شکل باید ترجمه عالی داشته باشه تا متن کامل قابل فهم بشه که فکر کنم این کتاب حداقل اینجوری نبود که من میخواستم.یک مجموعه ای از مقاله های کامو در مورد پوچی و سایر چیزهایی که با اون در ارتباط هست نوشته شده.چیزی که برام جالب بود وقتی میخوندمش خیلی از رمان های ک [...]


    30. "فى اللحظة الدقيقة التى يظر فيها الانسان الى الخلف ليستعرض حياته ، حين يعود سيزيف الى الصخرة ، فى ذلك الدوران الضئيل يتأمل تلك السلسة من الفعاليات اللامرتبطة ببعضها، التى تصبح مصيره ، الذى يخلقه هو والذى يمتزج تحت عين ذاكرته ، و سرعان ما يختم عليه موته و هكذا ، فهو يستمر فى سي [...]
