9781782798910: Starry Speculative Corpse: Horror of Philosophy (Vol 2)

Could it be that the more we know about the world, the less we understand it? Could it be that, while everything has been explained, nothing has meaning?

Extending the ideas presented in his book In The Dust of This Planet, Eugene Thacker explores these and other issues in Starry Speculative Corpse. But instead of using philosophy to define or to explain the horror genre, Thacker reads works of philosophy as if they were horror stories themselves, revealing a rift between human beings and the unhuman world of which they are part. Along the way we see philosophers grappling with demons, struggling with doubt, and wrestling with an indifferent cosmos. At the center of it all is the philosophical drama of the human being confronting its own limits. Not a philosophy of horror, but a horror of philosophy. Thought that stumbles over itself, as if at the edge of an abyss.

Starry Speculative Corpse is the second volume of the "Horror of Philosophy" trilogy, together with the first volume, In The Dust of This Planet, and the third volume, Tentacles Longer Than Night.

About the Author :

Eugene Thacker is a New York based author.

Review :

"In showing that it can sustain a lucid conversation with philosophy, Thacker's writing also treats horror literature as literature. Students of both philosophy and horror will find surprising inter-illuminations in these three books."Michael Cisco, author of The Divinity Student and Member
