His uncle Gustave did not approve of the relationship, but Camus married Hié to help her fight her addiction.
He later discovered she was in a relationship with her doctor at the same time and the couple later divorced.
He was impressed by ancient Greek philosophers and Friedrich Nietzsche.
Camus developed an interest in early Christian philosophers, but Nietzsche and Arthur Schopenhauer had paved the way towards pessimism and atheism.
Albert Camus was born on 7 November 1913 in a working-class neighbourhood in Mondovi (present-day Dréan), in French Algeria.
His mother, Catherine Hélène Sintès Camus, was of Spanish-(Balearic) descent. His father, Lucien Camus, a poor French-Algerian agricultural worker, died in the Battle of the Marne in 1914 during World War I—Camus never knew him.This series of events sharpened his belief in human dignity.Camus's mistrust of bureaucracies that aimed for efficiency instead of justice grew.Football, a game that brutally tests the minds and bodies of even its strongest players, brings forth many lessons about the importance of perseverance, dedication and hard work.As a result, some of the best and most inspirational quotes come from football minds, players and coaches — both current and former — that made their mark in the NCAA and/or NFL ranks.As tensions in the interwar period escalated, the Stalinist PCA and PPA broke ties.Camus was expelled from the PCA for refusing to follow the party line.Philosophically, Camus's views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism.He is also considered to be an existentialist, despite his having firmly rejected the term throughout his lifetime.Camus, his mother and other relatives lived without many basic material possessions during his childhood in the Belcourt section of Algiers.He was a second-generation French immigrant to Algeria.
