    The Existentialists:

    Albert Camus (reluctant philosopher/reluctant existentialist):
    Considered himself to be an absurdist rather than an existentialist, because unlike the other existentialists, he wasn't concerned with metaphysics, existence. Never believed himself a philosopher, but rather, a writer, as he was not interested in reason. Though arguably his essays and novels are philosophical and ask philosophical questions.
