Albert Camus (1913-1960) was a French Nobel Prize-winning author, journalist, and philosopher. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. Camus wrote in his essay "The Rebel" that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.
Words of inspiration from the anti-nihilist:
“In the depth of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
