GUERRA, André  and  GUARESCHI, Pedrinho. Love and revolt: contributions of Hannah Arendt y Albert Camus toward absurd ethics. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp.84-100. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article brings the contributions of the Algerian writer and philosopher Albert Camus to discuss ethics from the perspective of an existential philosophy, more specifically, a Philosophy of the Absurd. It is intended with this referential to remove the ethical problem of its purely intellectual dimension to - on the basis of which will  be proposed as a substantiation of ethics - pointing out the concrete relations of this discussion with life, i.e., with the presupposed materiality of ways of living - or existential styles -, i.e., in the way people relate with themselves, with others and with the world. After presented the notions of "absurd" and "revolt" presented by Albert Camus, it is made an approach of these to the concept of Amor Mundi discussed by Hannah Arendt. It follows, therefore, that the exceeding of the absurd toward new ethical styles can be given by the assumption of love as a constant and uninterrupted movement of struggle responsible for valuing the uniqueness of living.

Keywords : Ethics; Absurd; Love; Albert Camus.
