What You Reading? In the Dust of This Planet: Horror of Philosophy (v1)

by Eugene Thacker

This is the first of Thacker’s trilogy of the philosophy of horror. It is a fascinating read that seamlessly veers from classical philosophy to modern to occult and mysticism.  But this is not a dry academic tome, rather it is a thoughtful look at our world and the unspeakable things we encounter. It poses that horror, rather than being something that causes suffering, is in fact a comfort. A way to embrace the darkness and overcome it. There are also some great bits on why things scare us.

I was thoroughly entertained by this. So give it a go and if you think this is good read the next volumes: Starry Speculative Corpse and Tentacles Longer Than Night.
