Absurdism is a philosophical school of thought that emerged from existentialism, primarily associated with the works of Albert Camus. It grapples with the fundamental conflict between humans’ relentless quest for meaning and the universe’s indifferent nature. Absurdism asserts that life inherently lacks meaning, and it is the human pursuit of significance in a purposeless world that creates the absurd. This philosophy encourages embracing the absurd condition and finding personal meaning through individual experience, rather than seeking universal truths. Absurdism’s influence extends to literature, theatre, and contemporary philosophy, providing a poignant reflection on human existence and its paradoxes.
