Book Description Vintage Books, 1991. PaperBack. Book Condition: New. For Albert Camus, one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of the 20th century, the urge to revolt is one of the 'essential dimensions' of human nature, manifested in the timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of human existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides & deicides, Camus demonstrates how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. This is a classic essay of indelible impact; a conscience for tumultuous times. 306p. Bookseller Inventory # 2257561

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1957. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Revised. Octavo. XII, 306, [2]pp. Original printed wrappers over decorative cloth. Top edge red. Captivating work in which Camus describes how the theories of philosophers have been used with disastrous effect by political leaders. He traces the ideas , originating with Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the Marquis de Sade, which became political in the French Revolution-and the ideas of Hegel, Stirner, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky, and Karl Marx, which in various ways inspired the nihilist revolutions of Russia and the governments of Lenin, Hitler, and Stalin. In "The Rebel," Camus shows how the quest for truth, the mistaken belief, the distortion of Nietzches ideas about the Superman and his theories in "Beyond Good and Evil," the agonizing questions raised by Dostoevsky in "The Brothers Karamazov," and the defeat of Marx's theories by unforeseen developments in technical knowledge have led to a loss of all sense of values and to the cynical seizure of power by dictators sustained by the police state, concentration camps, and war. Wrappers, binding and interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 29234
