should you commit suicide in the face of absurdity

Recommended Posts

i say no, what about u

 

famous french-algerian philosopher albert camus holds that suicide is the most important philosophical question. Before asking metaphysical questions, i.e., the nature of time, reality, knowledge, what is morality and so forth, we must first ask whether life is worth living. Absurdity [absurdism] relates to the tension between our [human compulsion] to search for meaning and the apparent lack of meaning in the world. Why live if you've nothing to live for?
