The Stranger or The Outsider (L’Étranger) is a novel by Albert Camus published in 1942. Its theme and outlook are often cited as examples of existentialism, though Camus did not consider himself an existentialist; in fact, its content explores various philosophical schools of thought, including (most prominently and specifically) absurdism, as well as determinism, nihilism, naturalism, and stoicism.

"Si j’avais à écrire un livre de morale, il aurait cent pages et quatre-vingt-dix-neuf seraient blanches. Sur la dernière, j’écrirais « Je ne connais qu’un seul devoir et c’est celui d’aimer ». Et pour le reste, je dis non. Je dis non de toutes mes forces, car l’amour est le seul vrai sentiment." - Albert Camus
