«He leído El hombre rebelde, que me gusta mucho; ese es el único motivo de esta nota.» —Hannah Arendt, carta al autor. 

En su clásico estudio del pensamiento rebelde, Albert Camus traza un recorrido que va desde la ilustración hasta las revoluciones del siglo XX, pasando por movimientos como el anarquismo o el nihilismo. Polémico desde su publicación, el libro explora también el vínculo entre rebeldía política y estética, con análisis de figuras como el marqués de Sade, Marx, Nietzche y los surrealistas. A fin de cuentas, Camus no solo repasa casi dos siglos de insumisión, sino que ofrece valiosas hipótesis sobre la desmesura de su tiempo y, en buena medida, del nuestro.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution.


For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. As old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times.
