I thought that this book, especially the final dialogue between the main character and the priest, was very much a promotion of agnosticism and existentialism. It makes me wonder whether apathy - with regard to the future and other aspects of our lives which are out of our control - is truly the wisest way to live. Regardless, I think Camus is one of the greatest 20th century writers of philosophical fiction, right up there with Sartre. What do you guys think about all this?
