ANTI-MATTER MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ AND DEPRESSIVE REALISM PDF

The author thinks that the fact that although Houellebecq consistently denounces art and books as useless, he still writes books, is somehow of great significance. Human motivation is diffuse, and in all likelihood Houellebecq is driven by an amalgam of such mundane factors as needing an income and keeping himself busy. The final chapter is as silly as its embarrassing title suggests "There is actually no such thing as atheism". This level of reasoning is so embarrassing as to not merit a philosophical response.

This level of reasoning is so embarrassing as to not merit a philosophical response. The editing is also very sloppy, but I believe that the publisher is, somewhat cynically, selling this as part of its brand. Portions skimmed, when he drifted too far off topic. Not recommended unless you are writing a thesis on H. Also draws in David Foster Wallace as another writer who grappled with the same tensions but came out in a different place.

In this light, DFW looks not unlike Camus, an "existential humanist" who saw the nature of reality and rejected the old authorities that provided meaning but still sought to find a new source of meaning.
