Camus, as we have seen, was greatly concerned, even as a young man, with “la condition humaine” of Malraux, and with the closely-related theme of human salvation.1 The depth of this concern is clearly evidenced in Métaphysique chrétienne et Néoplatonisme, which examines Christian, Gnostic and Plotinian views on the nature and destiny of man.2 “Exile” and the “kingdom” are also major themes of Le Mythe de Sisyphe and L’Etranger in which Camus couples his absurdist view of life with an unquestionably “Hellenic” view of human destiny.
