The Dark Side: Thoughts on the Futility of Life from the Ancient Greeks to the Present
The Dark Side offers more than a thousand quotes, from nearly four hundred famous writers, from antiquity to the present, who addressed both mankind's contingent nature and the view that human existence is, at best, amusingly trivial or, more likely, horrifyingly meaningless. The quotes are arranged chronologically, with extensive commentary and numerous biographical sketches of the most intensely dark thinkers of all time. A brief history of nihilism is included... and there is a disturbing interview with an avowed nihilist, a prominent academician who insisted on anonymity. In short, the book is a profound concentration of negativity.
