Abstract: The paper analyses Albert Camus’ literary work as a form of alternative politics of resistance. Although Camus’ arguments for the evidence of the absurd are not philosophically convincing, his literary work can teach us how to resist the absurd that humans themselves tend to create. In opposition to Camus, the paper argues that the experience of the absurd is not a universal phenomenon. Rather, the absurd is a culturally and historically conditioned experience of anxiety which results from the failure of the positivist Weltanschauung. The paper explores some of the philosophical consequences of this conclusion.
