Contents / Notes

On pessimism -- The patron saints of pessimism.
Summary, etc.:
A collection of aphorisms, fragments, and observations on philosophy and pessimism.Composed of aphorisms, fragments, and observations both philosophical and personal, Eugene Thacker's Infinite Resignation traces the contours of pessimism, caught as it is between a philosophical position and a bad attitude. By turns melancholic, misanthropic, and tinged with gallows humor, Thacker's writing tenuously hovers over that point at which the thought of futility becomes the futility of thought.
Subject: Pessimism.
