Lausanne: Jean Marguerat, . Softcover. A nice copy of this work titled in English "Letters to a German Friend." In these imaginary letters to an imaginary friend, Camus responds to his German friend who advocates the greatness of his country. Camus replies that justice is greater than greatness and that, in any case, all means are not good to ensure its pre-eminence. Courage is only valid if it is subordinated to intelligence. Germany wants to dominate Europe while France hopes for a common adventure. Both believed that this world was not dominated by "superior reason", transcendent. If the German could infer that everything was allowed, Camus refused despair and turned to justice. "I still believe that this world has no higher sense," he wrote to her. But I know something in him makes sense, and that's the man, because he's the only one to demand to have some."[French Wikipedia].
