<logic, Aristotle, Leibniz, Kant, epistemology, <modus ponens, modus tollens, mathematics>, <possible, impossible, paradox, existensialism> Contrary to reason or beyond the limits of rationality; paradoxical, nonsensical, or meaningless. According to Camus, Sartre, and other existentialists, absurdity is an inescapable consequence of any sensitive effort to live in the face of an indifferent reality. The human tendency to desire most passionately what we can never have is absurd in this sense. Recommended Reading: Donald A.
