    The Myth of Sisyphus

    The myth of Sisyphus is an essay written by the philosopher and author Albert Camus. In this essay Camus tries to point out how humanity’s search for meaning, reconciliation, and understanding is absurd; for the very fact that we reside in an unintelligible universe that lacks the eternal and God. In the essay Camus shares a short hand description of the absurd which he described as, “The absurd is sin without God.” Another topic addressed in the essay is the inevitable question of suicide which follows such a realization. Camus’ response to the question of suicide is to not do it but to revolt.

    In the final chapter of the essay Camus compares the human experience to the situation of Sisyphus from Greek mythology. Sisyphus was a man condemned by the gods to repeat a task devoid of achievement. Sisyphus was to push a boulder up a mounting to only see it roll down again once he got it to the summit. However, we are to see Sisyphus as happy for he delights in the task alone.
