Depressive Realism argues that people with mild-to-moderate depression have a more accurate perception of reality than non-depressives. Depressive realism is a worldview of human existence that is essentially negative, and which challenges assumptions about the value of life and the institutions claiming to answer life’s problems. Drawing from central observations from various disciplines, this book argues that a radical honesty about human suffering might initiate wholly new ways of thinking, in everyday life and in clinical practice for mental health, as well as in academia. Divided into sections that reflect depressive realism as a worldview spanning all academic disciplines, chapters provide examples from psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy and more to suggest ways in which depressive realism can critique each discipline and academia overall. This book challenges the tacit hegemony of contemporary positive thinking, as well as the standard assumption in cognitive behavioural therapy that depressed individuals must have cognitive distortions. It also appeals to the utility of depressive realism for its insights, its pursuit of truth, as well its emphasis on the importance of learning from negativity and failure. Arguments against depressive realism are also explored. This book makes an important contribution to our understanding of depressive realism within an interdisciplinary context. It will be of key interest to academics, researchers and postgraduates in the fields of psychology, mental health, psychotherapy, history and philosophy. It will also be of great interest to psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors.

Michel Houellebecq is one of the most successful and controversial contemporary French novelists. Translated worldwide, with three film adaptations of his works, he has also been at the center of a host of media scandals in France. In this book, Douglas Morrey examines Houellebecq's stark representation of humanity—a terminal state of decadence and decline ripe for replacement by a posthuman successor—looking at the global significance of his visions at the same time that he situates them in the contexts of French literature, culture, and society.

Der Erzähler Michel ist Beamter im Kultusministerium und nach Dienstschluss einsamer Peep-Show-Erotomane. Die Urlaubspauschalreise ins Traumland Thailand verspricht diesem »ziemlich mittelmäßigen Individuum« paradiesisches Glück und sexuelle Erlösung. Zusammen mit seiner Mitreisenden Valérie, in die er sich verliebt, erfindet er ein rettendes Programm für die Reisebranche: Wenn mehrere Hundert Millionen alles haben, bloß kein sexuelles Glück, und mehrere Milliarden nichts haben als ihren Körper, dann ist das »eine Situation des idealen Tauschs«. Doch das Glück, nach dem Houellebecqs Erzähler Michel verzweifelt sucht, wird bei einem islamistischen Terroranschlag jäh zerstört.

Nach den Kontroversen um den Roman ›Unterwerfung‹ und den persönlichen Anfeindungen gegen seinen Autor ist dieses Duell in Worten aktueller denn je. Bernard-Henri Lévy und Michel Houellebecq sind zwei der wichtigsten Intellektuellen des französischen Literaturbetriebs und erwiesenermaßen »Volksfeinde«: Der umstrittene Philosoph trifft auf den meistgehassten französischen Schriftsteller der Gegenwart. Zwei bekennende Narzissten fragen sich, womit sie den Hass der Öffentlichkeit verdient haben, und sezieren das eigene Image mit kluger Koketterie: ein Schlagabtausch, der ins Private und Politische geht, poetologische Fragen ebenso behandelt wie philosophische und nebenbei glänzend unterhält.
