book cover Albert Camus
by Thomas Molnar
In this 1965 installment from our archives, the late historian Thomas Molnar assesses the life and thinking of Albert Camus, who sought to solve the riddle that evil poses to man.

All great systems, ethical or political, attain their ascendency over the minds of men by virtue of their appeal to the imagination; and when they cease to touch the chords of wonder and mystery and hope, their power is lost, and men look elsewhere for some set of principles by which they may be guided.
