James Igoe's Reviews > Infinite Resignation: On Pessimism

Infinite Resignation: On PessimismInfinite Resignation: On Pessimism by Eugene Thacker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although the first half of the book, devoted to ideas of philosophical pessimism was overly long - so many seemingly repeated ideas - it redeemed itself repeatedly with shots of brilliant laugh-out-loud dark humor. The second half, comprised of mini-biographies of great 'pessimist' philosophers, was straightforward providing background and insight, but again, accompanied with a sharp wit.
