By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution. For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. As old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times.
Translated from the French by Anthony Bower.
Camus' "The Rebel"
Excellent political/Psychological treatise explores the inevitable tyranny which follows in the wake of any Successful Revolution, wherein the formerly oppressed become the New Oppressors..
Well-thought out, written in an extremely rational, coherent manner.
All in all, very worthy Essay.
