The Scientific Revolution is what lead the people to a new way of life, a life where they were valued as well as their ideas in society and in government. The Enlightenment was influenced by the development of the Scientific Revolution to use logic and reason to challenge accustomed beliefs. Before the Scientific Revolution, people were blindly following the church and believing everything they said. They lacked the freedoms of speech, religion and they did not possess any knowledge of their own. The Scientific Revolution, the Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation led the people to a new age of intellectual pursuits and new outlooks of the word that differed from the Church’s.

The philosophy that is central to the novel, Absurdism, has elements that are derived from conclusions made on Camus’s own sociopolitical environment and the course of his own life. The political tension and overall chaos of the world in the early 1900s included not one, but two world wars, global economic depression, and the peak of European imperialism and violence. In moments in history in which people felt overwhelmingly helpless to the whims of a chaotic world, some choose to turn to assigning meaning through religion or metaphysical philosophies and analyses that help people explain their situation and thus control it. Camus, like the others that lived during this time, chose to accept the evident pointlessness to the world. Camus projects his own philosophy onto Meursault, and declares, “I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world” (Camus and Ward 122), approaching life as how Absurdism facilitates.
The 16th century was a period characterized by the revolutionary ideas and innovations that developed during the Renaissance. As these new ways of thinking flourished, the church, which had been overbearingly omnipresent in the Middle Ages, began to lose its influence, and its methods of practicing faith were questioned. Eventually, a spiritual revolution grew from the realization that the church hierarchy was focused more on their own monetary and personal gain, than on preaching God’s truth. The Reformation was a series of rebellious movements that strived to revive the morals of early Christianity and resulted in the division of the Christendom, which heavily influenced multiple aspects of Western and modern society. By the mid-17th century, both the Christian and Protestant Reformations had

Ignorance was the norm, intellectual life was nearly non-existent. The Church was a dominant and powerful presence in Europe at the height of its power, though sinful and barbaric as it was. As the Renaissance spread through Europe, individuals became educated and fought to break the stronghold the Church held over the continent. Power in the Church declined as intellectuals came to criticize it, garnering supporters and ending the centuries of religious unity in Europe. This rebirth, this period of flowering creativity and thinking led to great changes and improvements as individuals focused on the “here and now” rather than religious affairs.
His speech is not simply aided by the frightful connotations held with each word, but by the objective nature of his statements. Edwards speaks not from personal view, but from the view of a spiteful God forced to gaze upon the state of His creation. The omission of phrases such as “I believe” or other personal statements places the central focus upon God rather than Edwards himself. Despite his reputation as a gifted, educated minister, an audience of anxious colonists is likely to fear God in a manner which cannot be held towards a mere human being. By speaking instead for God Himself when Edwards declares, “Men’s hands cannot be strong when God rises up”, a superstitious audience is left petrified with distress.
