La peste by Albert Camus PDF

- Naturellement, vous savez ce que c'est, Rieux ?
- J'attends le résultat des analyses.
- Moi, je le sais. Et je n'ai pas besoin d'analyses. J'ai fait une partie de ma carrière en Chine, et j'ai vu quelques cas à Paris, il y a une vingtaine d'années. Seulement, on n'a pas osé leur donner un nom, sur le second. Et puis, comme disait un confrère : « C'est very unlikely, tout le monde sait qu'elle a disparu de l'Occident. » Oui, tout le monde le savait, sauf les morts. Allons, Rieux, vous savez aussi bien que moi ce que c'est.

44 / Adorno and Existence In the “Actuality” lecture Adorno did not develop this point at great length; it would emerge as a major theme in his critique of existentialism only in the writings of the postwar era, especially in Negative Dialectics and The Jargon of Authenticity. ” No less than the Vienna school, phenomenology pretends that its aim is little more than faithful description and therefore imagines that it can convert philosophy into a purely descriptive science. Their shared premise is that reality makes itself available to the researcher as a coherent field, governed either by the overt rules of empiricism or by the more elusive existential categories of an all-pervasive being.

Adorno denies that philosophy should confine itself to the task of either positivist or phenomenological description. The fatal error that afflicts all of Heidegger’s earlier and explicitly phenomenological studies is the belief that the question of being admits of a single and decisive answer (the Sinn von Sein); this answer is supposed to emerge from the experience of questioning as if it were little more than a “discovery” of a datum that was half forgotten or partially obscured. ” For Adorno philosophy must abandon this expectation of philosophical discovery since it encourages a misleading model of thought as mere “research” that is borrowed illicitly from the natural sciences.

49 Despite this confession, Adorno did not keep his discontent a secret for long. In the first review, he took strong exception to Wahl’s interpretation chiefly because it had failed to mention the reactionary appropriation of Kierkegaard’s ideas. ” More troubling still for Adorno was Wahl’s effort of rendering harmless (Verharmlosung) those facets of Kierkegaard that earlier interpreters such as Heidegger 30 / Adorno and Existence and Jaspers had bent toward “conformist and ideological” ends. ’ In other words: whether this ambitious effort has not had the effect of flattening him out.
