Arabic term or phrase: العبثية
العبثية مدرسة أدبية فكرية، تدعي أن الإنسان ضائع لم يعد لسلوكه معنى في الحياة المعاصرة ولم يعد لأفكاره مضمون، وإنما هو يجتر أفكاره لأنه فقد القدرة على رؤية الأشياء بحجمها الطبيعي نتيجة للرغبة في سيطرة الآلة على الحياة لتكون في خدمة الإنسان، حيث انقلب الأمر فأصبح الإنسان في خدمة الآلة، وتحول الناس إلى تروس في هذه الآلة الاجتماعية الكبيرة.
