Immediatism Episode 8: History as Decomposition, by Alejandro de Acosta

Submitted by ploopt in Podcasts

“Our awareness of decomposition leads to certain insights that are disconcerting and fascinating as well; they may well be visions from outside Civilization. This awareness informs our action without distinguishing us from events. I am referring to what is most question-worthy: the passing sense of the weird and meaningless way in which things happen, beyond causality and so beyond lasting explanation.” Alejandro de Acosta

The text read this episode, the second in a trilogy of essays on approaches to nihilism by Alejandro de Acosta, is included in The Impossible, Patience: Critical Essays 2007 – 2013 published by Ardent Press and available from Little Black Cart.
