In order to end a false legend developed by Satre and others, stating that Camus is a “philosopher for highschool students”, Michel Onfray invites us to discover an amazing work and destiny.

About Michel Onfray
Michel Onfray is a contemporary French philosopher who defends hedonism, atheism and anarchism. He is a highly prolific philosophy author, with more than 50 books published.
He has gained notoriety for writing such works as Physiologie de Georges Palante, portrait d’un nietzchéen de gauche, Politique du rebelle: traité de résistance et d’insoumission, Traitéd’athéologie: Physique de la métaphysique (translated into English as Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam), “La puissance d’exister” and “La Sculpture de soi”, for which he won the annual Prix Médicis in 1993.
His philosophy is mainly influenced by such thinkers as Nietzsche, Epicurus, the cynic and cyrenaic schools, French materialism, and individualist anarchism.

About Albert Camus
Albert Camus was a French Nobel Prize winning author, journalist, and philosopher. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as Absurdism. He wrote in his essay “The Rebel” that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom. Although often referred to as a proponent of existentialism – the philosophy with which Camus was associated during his own lifetime – he rejected this particular label.
Author, playwright and journalist, Albert Camus was the 9th French author to receive the Nobel Prize in 1957.
