Albert Camus on Ethics - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 336
Ethics/Camus: In L'Homme révolté, Camus derives ethics at all from resistance. Since authoritarian ethics, which subordinates the individual to the community, dominates the history of ethics, this is a change in ethics. If the revolt demands a connection of revolts, which owes its existence to free dialogue and mediation, then it proves to be a force of life. It wants to be creative, not to destroy, to unfold the connecting beauty. Their logic is at the same time affirmation and negation, thus again a relativism.
