About this product
- DescriptionPessimism is thought of as an exclusively negative stance that inevitably leads to resignation. Even when pessimism looks like utter truth, we are told that it makes the worst of a bad situation. This book challenges the received wisdom about pessimism, arguing that there is an unrecognized yet vibrant pessimistic philosophical tradition.
