There is more to the ‘politics o f surrender’ than the essay on Camus’ The Rebel shows by comparing surrender and rebellion and intimating the conception of man not only as the being who can surrender and catch but also as a ‘mixed phenomenon.’ This latter conception is developed further, as well as applied, in what therefore comes next: ‘Surrender and Community Study: The Study of Loma.’ Following it, I shall try to point to the relations between ‘surrender’ and certain basic ideas of the ‘Frankfurt School.’1
