it was amazing

Camus addresses what he believes in the ultimate philosophical question which is "Should I commit suicide or not." He comes to the conclusion that in the end it is not. That to give in to suicide is to give in to the absurd.

A absurdist makes his own meaning in the world. The world itself is devoid of meaning and everything that we do in the end of the day goes to nothing. Therefore, according to Camus, man needs to come to come up with his own meaning in the world.
