englischThis monograph reveals basic structural parallels between the ideas of a good life in both Kierkegaard and Camus. Both authors share a range of metaphors on and concepts of experience of the negative, and both conceptualise a good life as not-fleeing, but without a positive concept. The absurd in Camus structurally assumes the position of the other in Kierkegaard, so that how the individual relates to the absence of any criterion becomes the criterion of a good life itself. This thesis is supported by both authors’ respective arguments against suicide. The difference between both conceptions is first and foremost paradigmatic: the idea of man as opposed to the idea of man as absurd.

»ofrece lo que posiblemente sea el primer trabajo en que se lleva a cabo un estudio sistemático y detenido de esos dos pensadores tan dispares como son Kierkegaard y Camus. Ya por ello es de saludar la publicación de esta investigación.«
Paul Kreuzer, Concordia 1/2023, 106
