Beschreibung:

This fascinating book critically utilizes scholarly material to explore how Jesus and Albert Camus responded to the existential realities of evil. An interdisciplinary work, it charts a course through complex issues and vast amounts of scholarly literature employing a cogent and eloquent prose style. By way of literary analysis, it demonstrates that the immediate social contexts, characterized by rapid social change and symbolic disintegration, are evidenced in both the forms and content of Jesus' parables and Camus' writings. This analysis leads to the insight that Jesus and Camus rejected the prevailing moralistic and religious ways of explaining evil in favor of an «artistic» response to this existential problem.
Contents: Details «Evil as an Existential Reality». Jesus and Camus offer artistic responses in «Birth and Death of Language.» This is contrasted with other responses, Plato, Gnosticism, John Hick. How to escape the denial of finitude, «To Be or Not to Be».
