    Wonderful book; even if you do not care for Camus' philosophy, he offers an incredibly thoughtful and relevant analysis on the histories and development of what he defines as metaphysical rebellion: wherein lies the birth of Romanticism, Nihilism, Totalitarianism and extremist ideologies; and virtually everything that came to replace religion as we entered the modern era. A detail to note, and something that took me an admittedly embarrassing time to pick up on is that Camus tends to write from the perspective of those he's writing of (Libertines, Romanticists, etc); which if you do not keep in mind, some pages may seem like endorsements.
