Summary/Abstract: The paper has an aim to explain Camus’ book – “The Myth of Sisyphus” – the most important questions of existence and the meaning of existence in general. The work is presented in the form of an essay, so its point and significance are highlighted in a manner that is a bit freer. The question of absurdity, as the essential inquiry, stands out immediately. It can be discerned that absurdity is the basis of understanding of Camus’ entire philosophical deliberation on man and the way his existence unrolls in the world. In accordance to this, beginning with the absurd, a search is started and a possible answer given to the question – “Why should I live?”
