Camus at Combat

I had the chance to identify my intellectual hero in the Normblog profile but didn't take it. Now I can: Albert Camus.

Here's a review by Joseph Frank (sign-up required), which appeared in the July 24 New Republic, of Camus at "Combat": Writing 1944–1947, edited by Jacqueline Levi-Valensi. The book features all of Camus' journalistic writings for the underground magazine. Both book and review are well worth a read.

Admit it. You all thought I was going to say Castoriadis, didn't you?
