Chapter please?

chapters 4-5 pt.1♥

When Marie asks Meursault if he loves her, he replies that it does not matter and that he does not think he loves her. She looks sad but later laughs and he kisses her again. We can infer that he is incapable of emotion or love. Meursault doesn't know how to love.
