Paul Archambault explores the evolution of Camus' attitude toward Hellenism and Christianity as seen through his writing.

The author considers problems as disparate as Camus' use and misuse of Aeschylus and the Presocratics, his ambivalent appraisal of Socrates, the ""Plotinian"" nature of his aesthetics, his identification of Christianity with Augustinian theology, and the Gnostic resonance of his characteristic ideas.
