Camus’ Understanding of the Paradoxically Multidimensional Human Being
Keywords:self-overcoming, self-recognition, the meaning of life, paradox, dual nature, human being, truth, despair, multidimensionality, anthropological
The article analyses important issues of philosophical anthropology from a socio-philosophical viewpoint. By defining a human being in different stages of the development of philosophical thought, one or another of his genus’s essential characteristics are distinguished. Modern philosophy documents that human beings are paradoxical, contradictory beings and subject to complicated definitions. This analysis is based on the different approaches of well-known researchers, leaning on the human paradox and trying to rationalise it as much as possible. The article combines the main approaches that provide an opportunity to justify humans’ philosophical essence and nature comprehensively.
