o problema do pessimismo

,

In raising problems without solutions, in posing questions without answers, in retreating to the hermetic, cavernous abode of complaint, pessimism is guilty of that most inexcusable of Occidental crimes – the crime of not pretending its for real. Pessimism fails to live up to the most basic tenet of philosophy – the ‘as if’. Think as if it will be helpful, act as if it will make a difference, speak as if there is something to say, live as if you are not, in fact, being lived by some murmuring non-entity both shadowy and muddied.

Eugene Thacker, Cosmic Pessimism (via Spurious)
