Books by Ian Irvine (Hobson)
This much published article has influenced film-makers and other creative people over the years. This is a slightly up-dated version though the main argument is unchanged. I probably see things somewhat differently these days - nevertheless, I think the article contains important insights that stand the test of time.

Go to Scribd version of 'Towards and Outline of Postmodern Ennui' copyright Ian Irvine, 1999-2010 all rights reserved. First Published in 'The Antigonish Review" (Canada) edition 116, 1999. Sections of the article also appear in The Angel of Luxury and Sadness, my non-fiction book on chronic ennui in the post-traditional Western world.

The article has also been extensively referenced/quoted from, e.g. see:
'Cyberspace as an Excuse from Responsibility', by Moira Carroll-Mayer and Bernd Carsten Stahl, Ethical Space: The International Journal of Communication Ethics, p.42 Vol 2 No. 3 , 2005.

Communication Ethics Now, (book of essays, see p.286) edited by Richard Keeble, Troubador Publishing, 2008.

Essays on Boredom and Modernity, (book Introduction p.20) 2009, edited by Barbara Dalle Pezze and Carlo Salzani. 

'A Small Dissertation on St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Clinical Description of Depression from a Hindu Perspective', at Lectio Divina or Daily Readings (Tantra oriented blog-site). 

 'The Philosopher' blog, 'My Sorrow Thesis' page.
