My research highlights the influence of Albert Camus's revolt on Michel Onfray's philosophy. By examining Camus's literary efforts against nihilism during the 20th century, I argue that Onfray perpetuates this same endeavor in the 21st century. I also emphasize Onfray's claim that nihilism has evolved in Western culture since Camus's passing and how this self-destructive movement can be surpassed by choosing to revolt against ideological absolutes and return to an atomistic worldview.
