Tame and Work

"Depression, in most of its manifestations, is the healthy suspicion that 1) there may not be an aim or point to existence, and/or 2) that the life people have actually created, the 'structure of society,' is not one worth participating in. The objective should not be to kill this suspicion, but to tame it and work with it."


  1. This is exactly what sets Depression in the clinical sense—i.e., with capital D—apart from the depressive force within you and me, isn’t it: To be still able to work with and through this suspicion.
