Product description


"When life gives us lemons, Thacker refuses to make lemonade. Rather he adds lemon juice to the ink pot, and proceeds to write with an acerbic clarity - and even touches of black humor - about the predicament of being human. Infinite Resignation is an extended and eloquent sigh; not only for the absurd state of things, but also for the misfortune of being able to perceive these in such stark and fluorescent detail. In darkly dwelling with the essential antagonisms of existence, Thacker channels the spirits of Schopenhauer and Cioran, and in doing so, obliges us all to face the profoundly prosaic horror of persisting."

-- Dominic Pettman, author of Human Error: Species Being and Media Machines

Product Description

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.
