Nick Land

Data di nascita: 17. Gennaio 1962

Nick Land is an English philosopher, short-story horror writer, blogger, and "the father of accelerationism".

His writing is credited with pioneering the genre known as "theory-fiction". A cofounder of the 1990s collective Cybernetic Culture Research Unit, his work has been tied to the development of accelerationism and speculative realism.

Most recently, Land has been a primary theorist and the namer of the Dark Enlightenment, a "neoreactionary" philosophy that opposes egalitarianism and is sometimes associated with the alt-right or other right-wing movements. Shuja Haider notes, "His sequence of essays setting out its principles have become the foundation of the NRx canon."

Contesto: God is nowhere to be found, yet there is still so much light! Light that dazzles and maddens; crisp, ruthless light. Space echoes like an immense tomb, yet the stars still burn. Why does the sun take so long to die? Or the moon retain such fidelity to the Earth? Where is the new darkness? The greatest of all unknowings? Is death itself shy of us?
