Albert Camus on Existentialism - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 323
Existentialism/Camus: Camus never belonged to the Existentialists, but was mistakenly counted among them by the reception because he was friends with Sartre and Beauvoir. However, with L'étranger (1942) and La peste (1947) in literature and Le mythe de Sisyphe (1942) he acted similarly in concert in a philosophical way. With Les justes (1949) at the latest, however, Camus began a withdrawal movement from the hopes of a socialist revolution spreading among the group around Sartre.
