Did Sade loose his humanity? See 1 question about O Homem Revoltado…. Lists with This Book. This book is not albery featured on Listopia. Camys both rebellion and revolt, which may be seen as the same phenomenon in camis and social frames, Camus examines several ‘countercultural’ figures and movements from the history of Western thought and art, noting the importance of each in the overall development of revolutionary thought and philosophy.
This work has received ongoing interest, influencing modern philosophers and authors such as Paul Berman and others. Although I’ve always been temperamentally skeptical of Utopias, I’m thankful to Camus for completely inoculating me, as a year-old, against the various postures of chic revolt so common among the teenagers of bored, affluent nations.
There was no silk-screened Che across my bosom. Revolutions aren’t secular versions of the Rapture, in which the “bad” government disappears, to be replaced by a new, “good” one. Revolution is generally a social calamity, a nightmare of inhumanity: This book is an awesome display of philosophical insight and moral awareness; next to Camus, Sartre is at best a naive bourgeois, from a distance lionizing the reboltado who would have destroyed him if they had had the chance, and at worst a cynical degenerate, a knowing flatterer of tyrants.

I must confess that I didn’t find much that was especially insightful in Camus’ account of rebellion, revolution, and nihilism here while reading it, but now that I look back on it, I caamus that he actually has much to say–and that much of it is worthwhile. Camus begins by defining the rebel as one who affirms by negating, who says yes in saying no–one who decries absolute freedom in establishing limits to acceptable behavior.
He thus immediately counterposes the rebel with the nihilist, who, in I must confess that I didn’t find much that was especially insightful in Camus’ account of rebellion, revolution, and alberh here while reading it, but now that I look back yomem it, I see that he actually has much to say–and that much of it is worthwhile.
He camud immediately counterposes the rebel with the nihilist, who, in denying that anything has meaning, valorizes a conception of life which is dominated by mere facts–power.
He takes issue with revolutionary movements as they have existed in the twentieth century, claiming most of them to have betrayed the origins of rebellion by replacing it with an absolutist–even, totalitarian–ethic. He sees much to be respected in the efforts of the Albfrt ‘revolutionaries’ of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries a group from which he of course excludes Revoltafowho rebelled against tsarism and tyranny often violently.
Camus finds their nobility partly in the fact which he posits that these revolutionaries, unlike many of their counterparts of the twentieth century, were often quite consumed by doubt and engaged in murder and assassination only with much reluctance and much moderation. He laments, then, the disappearance of such doubt and moderation in the nihilism that gripped much of the twentieth century, nihilism that gave rise to the uncompromising ideology of Marxism-Leninism and, not unrelatedly, Nazism, and denounces its consequences.
Camus also roundly criticizes many of alnert intellectual contemporaries for their undying faith in Marxism, claiming, l one, that Marxism reproduces some of the central problems of religious faith ie, in relegating justice, etc. I think he’s certainly on to something here, but I think his reading of Marx is also somewhat flawed, in that Camus seems to disregard Marx’s concern with emancipation and free conscious activity in his efforts to discredit the approach of the “prophet of justice.
It seems that many so-called revolutionaries, though probably more of the socialist-Marxist bentalbeert reject Camus’ analysis as sentimental and, in fact, supportive of the status quo. Does Camus then break with the predominance of Marxist thought cmus his day and accept something close to anarchism? He certainly seems to reject revolutionary society at least, the revolutions demonstrated thus far by historybut homej remains highly critical of bourgeois society as well.
Contemplating these tensions is crucially important, and Camus’s The Rebel certainly represents camuz important contribution to this debate.
Oh wow, that was an exciting trip. I feel like I’ve just spent the last few weeks driving at high speed through the desert in an unsuitable vehicle. I got lost a few times, misplaced my map, ran out of water and my vehicle broke down almost every day; sometimes I feared that I’d never find my way out of the wilderness or to the end of the chapter.

There were some frightening experiences, a bumpy ride I feel mentally beaten up and occasional views of the big picture more camuw, breathtaking, scary and profound than I had imagined.
Albert Camus was very worried by the course of Russian Communism when he wrote this book in Many Western thinkers of the day seemed to be instinctively drawn to communism and the contemporary Russian experience. Camus worked from first principles trying to understand what was so obviously immoral and why the Revolution was so murderous. We are taken on a tour of Rebellion and Revolution We meet key players and thinkers from history. We visit historical revolutions and mull over their aftermaths, comparing and contrasting and trying to comprehend why they comprehensively loose their way and end up oppressing the very people that give them their only legitimacy.
This was not an easy read for me, if I was to try to properly follow Camus’ reasoning I had to take side trips to other books and the internet to get a handle on characters and concepts. Camus wrote this at a pretty high level and directed it at the high flying intellectuals of the day, intellectual shorthand that Camus threw onto the page in a sentence took me hours or days in some cases to understand. What did I get from this experience?
O homem revoltado
Well, it boils down to something that is a great philosophy for life. If you believe anything so strongly that you want to make others understand, then you will end up oppressing, coercing and murdering. If you believe anything founded on unshakeable principles and follow it to its logical conclusion, then you will end up oppressing, coercing and murdering. Don’t force your world view on others, live morally, don’t hurt others, be strong in defence of the weak, if you are strong be gentle, if you are gentle be strong.
If it feels wrong then it probably is. I found this a difficult but worthwhile book. Your mileage labert differ.
Camu all 3 comments. The Jacobins, rebelled against King and God and by making their principles divine, introduced the Reign of Terror. Nihilism went further and eliminated absolute principles and its rise during the second half of the nineteenth century created terrorists who renounced virtue and principles and who rebelled against reality and history by destroying them.
From the killing of gods to the killing of kings, rebellions had ushered in the terrors of Hitler and then of Stalin. The Soviets, in the name of the classless society in the future, a new heaven and a new earth where the lamb and the lion coexist, justified violence to guide the path of civilization, to force the end of history, the Marxist utopia.
Camus stated that absolute freedom leads to injustice and absolute justice stifles freedom and demonstrated it with examples from the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution. And he believed that only through moderation, by limiting freedom with justice and vice versa, could a possible solution emerge. Events in the past several decades have shown that his statement remains relevant in our time.
From Timothy McVeigh to Al Qaeda to Anders Behring Breivik, we have seen terrorists kill in the revltado of their freedom, their absolute freedom, and of justice, their notion of absolute justice.
During the Arab Spring, rebels from vamus countries have fought against tyranny and toppled decades-old regimes to assert their freedom. Will they, having achieved their freedom, how will they proceed? I admit — when I first picked up The Rebel in this artful Penguin edition, I was picturing beatniks with berets and cigarettes contesting over existentialist espressos about the absurdity of man and the imperative to resist. Instead I wlbert myself pounding through pages of difficult, beautifully-phrased polemic, never quite sure what albsrt being argued for or against.
It’s not so much that Camus meanders as that he seems to take a very long, philosophical-historical route to reach the most obvious I admit — when I first picked up The Rebel in this artful Penguin edition, I was picturing beatniks with berets and cigarettes contesting over existentialist espressos about the absurdity of man and the imperative to resist.
It’s not so much that Camus meanders as that he seems to take a very long, philosophical-historical route to reach the most obvious conclusion: Murder is always wrong, without exception — and whenever we champion a system of faith or justice or equality which justifies depriving others of life and liberty, we stumble into “nihilism” — or more simply, into inhumanity.
Camus opens with the provocative aphorism “Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is” — and concludes with a line worthy of hlmem flower-child — “instead of killing and dying in order to produce the being that we are not, we have to live and let live in hommem to create what we are.

He is a hero to me, most of all in his refusal to be one. You know those kinds of books which you read amid the din of everyday life and you eventually finish while the whole time you realize that so much has gone past, gone by, that you can only feel the whoosh of wisdom, ideas and reflections going right over your head?
That’s sort of how I feel about this book. It’s the sort of feeling when you are reading more or less the way you usually do- a lot of attention here, too little attention there- and all the while you just know in your bones that you’r You know those kinds of books which you read amid the din of everyday life and you eventually finish while the whole time you realize that so much has gone past, gone by, that you can only feel the whoosh of wisdom, ideas and reflections going right over your head?
It’s the sort of feeling when you are reading more or less the way you usually do- a lot of attention here, too little attention there- and all the while you just know in your bones that you’re going to have to re-read it.
Such power, such insight, such scholarship, just a magnificent writer delving into some of the most pressing issues of our time. Makiya is the kind of guy who is trying to suss out modern Iraq pre and post war! Wrinkled shirt, wacky walk, glasses, etc. So one day he comes bursting into a local cafe, waving a book in his hands.
Skip the pages in the middle of the book. Just read the beginning and the end. The background and history is long-winded and irrelevant, but the takeaways are golden.

cqmus Here’s what I got from it: We don’t know who will win, we just know that one of them will win. The albbert with artists is that they can create, but they can’t destroy. The victor, or th Skip the pages in the middle of the book. The victor, or the real rebel, ideally needs to do both. He has no regard for preserving the past, is obsessed with what the fruit of his present moment will provide for the future.
Camus, like me, has a deep respect and love! I recommend reading the two side by side to see the parallels. The book constantly reminds me of Nietzsche’s Zarathustra: Dec 11, april.
