All The Better


"It was previously a question of finding out whether or not life had to have a meaning to be lived. It now becomes clear, on the contrary, that it will be lived all the better if it has no meaning."
Albert Camus

  1. The meaning of life is to live - to live that we serve life...

  2. Who is that saying? In his early politically engaged life in Algeria, Camus was certainly convinced of his own life´s meaning. But how disastrous was this time for a young intellectual! Colonialism, the uprising of Marxism, the world war, and personally a lot of deceipts and illnesses. I don´t know if Sisyphos accepted the uselessness of his doing, neither if Camus finally did.

    Today it´s different. At least in Europe we live without existential fear. Much easier we find a sense of life and this provides us with additional food or delight.

  3. This article is obsessing.
    There is no other absolute meaning (meaningfulness?) of life itself than it´s reproduction. Most lifes of single humans get their meaning by a religous content. All others are more or less free to give a meaning to their individual lifes. Some of them discover the absurdity, some others forget this question and a few are adapted as Sisyphos, only because breathing is better than apnoea.

  4. All the really important things are very banal.
