Philosopher Eugene Thacker thinks and writes about a world of natural disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. Existence, he writes, is becoming increasingly "unthinkable." He has written on a range of topics, from philosophy to science fiction and horror. Thacker is the author of a number of books, including After Life (2010), and In the Dust of this Planet in his Horror of Philosophy series. He is Associate Professor of Media Studies at The New School in New York.
