    A Benign Indifference In The Outsider, the author gives the readers the opportunity to walk in the shoes of the main character Meursault, a seemingly detached and emotionless Frenchman who works as a shipping clerk in Algiers.

In this part readers are simply presented

As the tourism product is often dependent upon nature, negative impacts upon that resource should be minimized. As Cater [1994] notes, even the most conscientious tourist will have some degree of impact on the environment and so ecotourism should therefore attempt to minimize that impact. Many studies of tourism attempt to identify an environmental carrying capacity but a major difficulty of this technique is that it “implies the existenc

Maybe Meursault is just in shock from the news and it hasn’t really registered in his mind yet, but it seems to me it’s more likely that Meursault is just a detached man. Maybe something has happened to him in the past to make him act this way. For example he never mentions his father; maybe his father died and traumatized him, leaving him in this detached s
