Culture: the cry of men in face of their destiny. Albert Camus
So did he mean that all the odds contribute to culture?

    I see it a little differently. I think it refers to the fact that humans make an effort to create culture though they know they aren't going to be around for ever, though they can enjoy it only for a limited period.

    It's something they do in the face of their mortality/though their mortality is against them.

    It's probably "in the face of".
