Absurdism is related to existentialism and nihilism, and the term has its roots in the nineteenth century Danish philosopher, SΓΈren Kierkegaard. Absurdism as a philosophical position was born out of the Existentialist movement when the French philosopher and writer Albert Camus broke from that philosophical line of thought and published his manuscript the Myth of Sisyphus.
