Albert Camus (November 7, 1913January 4, 1960) was an Algerian-French author and philosopher, best-known for his novel The Stranger.

Existentalism

Although he is often associated with existentialism, Camus preferred to be known as a man and a thinker, rather than as a member of a school or ideology. He preferred persons over ideas. In an interview in 1945, Camus rejected any ideological associations: “No, I am not an existentialist. Sartre and I are always surprised to see our names linked....” (Les Nouvelles litteraires, November 15, 1945).
