"The central concern of The Myth of Sisyphus is what Camus calls "the absurd."... Camus opens [his] essay by asking if this latter conclusion that life is meaningless necessarily leads one to commit suicide. If life has no meaning, does that mean life is not worth living?

Camus is interested in pursuing a third possibility: that we can accept and live in a world devoid of meaning or purpose."
`Humanity should accept that science has eliminated the justification for believing in cosmic purpose, and that any survival of purpose is inspired only by sentiment." -- Professor Peter Atkins
