The Rebel by Albert Camus

The Rebel

by Albert Camus

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
11 Hrs. 44 Min.


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 reveals 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.
