Origin[edit | edit source]

Albert Camus (November 7, 1913-January 4, 1960) was a French Nobel Prize winning author, journalist, and philosopher. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He wrote in his essay the Rebel that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.

Effect[edit | edit source]

This coffee cup was used by Camus while he was writing The Stranger. When coffee is drank from the cup, the user will begin to lose their sense of empathy, becoming much like the main character of The Stranger, Meursault.
