Camus on Freedom, Happiness and Suicide in Myth of Sisyphus

The question of freedom, suicide and happiness has always been on the cresses of human’s mind. Camus in his book The Myth of Sisyphus addresses these issues. He elucidates that this world in itself is not absurd, what is absurd is our courting with the universe that is irrational. The absurd depends as a lot on man as on the sector. It is all that links them collectively. The aim of the research is to humans to feel free and happy within their existence, thereby, realizing that suicide isn’t the ultimate end to their existence.

Keywords: Egocentric, irrationality, suicidal, escapism, melancholy, absurdism, rationale.
