    Should we consider black a colour, the absence of colour, or a suspension of vision produced by a deprivation of light? Beginning with Robert Fludd’s attempt to picture nothingness, Eugene Thacker reflects on some of the ways in which blackness has been used and thought about through the history of art and philosophical thought.

    This is a web republication of the original essay by Eugene Thacker.

    Wremena is used throughout, paired with Steinbeck for captions and anchor links. While Wremena is a “a Times-like font” without italics, it seemed appropriate to use Times New Roman’s italics as a substitute for accentuation. Pilar has been used for title.

    The original essay can be found on Public Domain Review.
