Albert Camus (French: [albɛʁ kamy]; 7 November 1913 - 4 January 1960) was a French philosopher, writer, and journalist. His perspectives contributed to the rise of the philosophy called absurdism. He wrote in his article The screenplay which his entire life was dedicated to opposing the doctrine of nihilism whilst nevertheless delving deeply into individual freedom. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957.
Camus did not consider himself to be an existentialist despite generally being categorized as one, even in his lifetime. In a 1945 interview, Camus rejected any ideological associations: ""No, I'm not an existentialist. Sartre and I are constantly surprised to see our titles linked..."".
Camus was born in Algeria to a Pied-Noir household, and studied at the University of Algiers from which he graduated in 1936. Back in 1949, Camus launched the Group for International Liaisons to ""denounce two ideologies found in the USSR and the USA"".
