Endarkenment: Nihilism as Liberation in Weird Fiction

ENDARKENMENT: NIHILISM AS LIBERATION IN WEIRD FICTION –

Thomas Ligotti once wrote that ” Consciousness has forced us into the paradoxical position of striving to be unself-conscious of what we are—hunks of spoiling flesh on disintegrating bones” and, in doing so, joined a host of writers and philosophers dabbling in what’s generally scoffed at as ‘nihilism.’ But what if that lack of meaning could lead, not to oppression, but to liberation? Come join our panel as they discuss ways in which literary and philosophical endarkenment can lead to new vistas of understanding and meaning in meaninglessness.

Panelists: Nicole Cushing, Scott Dwyer, Daphne Gem, Bracken MacLeod (M), Jon Padgett
