The paper aims to show how according to A. Camus it is possible for humans to cope with the absence of meaning in their lives. It covers the transformations the concept of human destiny underwent in Camus' works, beginning with his essay 'Myth of Sisyphus' up to his work 'The Rebel'. Given this context the paper focuses on the problem of the relationship between the absurd and the metaphysical revolt. The authoress argues, that according to Camus it is the revolt that makes it possible to create new values even on the background of the absurd and so in spite of the meaninglessness of human destiny to live a fulfilled life.
