Philosopher Eugene Thacker Sighs in the Face of Everything in ‘Infinite Resignation’

by Ezra Buckley on August 23, 2018

“Life sucks. Then you die.” When my father first uttered these words, they were not meant to be depressing or sad. He was merely stating a fact, hoping that my siblings and I would understand that life would hurt no matter what we did. This fact became a family motto of sorts, something uttered whenever major or minor tragedy struck, a maxim we could all rely on to get through whatever happened to be ailing us. After reading Infinite Resignation: On Pessimism, I think Eugene Thacker would agree with this axiom.
