Ö Nachträge zur Lehre vom Leiden der Welt · Download by Ö Arthur Schopenhauer I came across this book during a particularly bad spell of the black dog I googled suffering in the world why book and came across this and quotes related I immediately ordered it off and thought it would be a soothing Buddhist style comfort imploring me to accept the influx of pain and suffering in reality I was partially right But also very wrong Schopenhauer is quite a snobbish misanthrope, and I say this only in the confidence that I believe he would agree His essay On the Indestructibility of our Essential Being by Death was absolutely timeless and enlightening and one of the best things I have ever read, for this section alone I was tempted to give this 5 stars As were his thoughts On Thinking for Yourself His section On Women however, was predictably myopic Nevertheless, I came away from the experience with the thrill of being able to cite his name pretentiously and th there is no doubt in my mind that Arthur Schopenhauer is a genius, whatever that term may entitle. in this book alone he foreshadowed the theory of evolution, the discovery of the conscious and subconscious mind, and had extremely beautiful texts regarding The suffering of the world , The vanity of existence and on suicide he however had two Huge flaws that prevented me personally from enjoying his book fully A his extreme self righteous vanity B his massive almost psychopathic misogyny. as a lot of highly intelligent, suppressed, outcast, and generally unsocial people tend to be and these are all my personal assumptions, non of them are facts I believe Schopenhauer simply did not think that the majority of people could conceive intelligent thought how very pal Some readers seem to enjoy essays such as On the Suffering of the World while denouncing On Women completely Of course Schopenhauer is overtly sexist but his view on femininity is a crucial part of his philosophy, so let s not ignore it simply because it s sexist Schopenhauer s basic idea on women is that the female sex is the unaesthetic sex they suffer but their suffering is unaesthetic and thus of little value Schopenhauer famously regards suffering as positive and happiness as negative but it is important to note that he distinguishes between different kinds of suffering women suffer from pains of childbirth, the caring for the child and subjection to the man, but women the incurable philistines are not capable of great suffering, or aesthetic suffering The idea of aesthetic suffering seems self contradictory to me because Schopenhauer suggests aesthetics Me Schopenhauer honey, I do think you are brilliant, but you need a hug and a little fun Schopenhauer Can t help but feel the world would have suffered a little less if Schopenhauer hadn t been in it.
Nihilistic and pessimistic but in the meantime deeply realistic criticism on life as a whole Loved it Where he s good, Schopenhauer is very good On the Suffering of the World, On Thinking for Yourself, On Philosophy and the Intellect , but where he s bad he s execrable On Women. Dour and pessimistic, he s the Morrissey of philosophy All is vanity, life is short and joy is fleeting I have to wonder if today he would be diagnosed with clinical depression, rather than the romantic melancholia of genius So, that said, I found much in common with him, in a mordantly humourous way, as I m inclined to a glass half empty view of life much as I seek to amend that Where I think he goes wrong, particularly so in his views upon women, is in not challenging the assumptions and cultural perspectives of his time and place He takes these views as given and does not seem to be conscious of the possibility that the qualities he berates in woman Throughout history, some books have changed the world They have transformed the way we see ourselves and each other They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted They have enriched lives and destroyed them Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are. Arthur Schopenhauer was born in Danzig in 1788 He went on to study medicine and science at Gottingen University and in 1810 began to study philosophy In 1811 he transferred to Berlin to write his doctoral thesis, and began to write The World as Will and Idea, a complete exploration of his philosophy, which was finished in 1818 Although the book failed to sell, his belief in his own views sustained him through twenty five ye Things Schopenhauer likes music, suicide, tragic drama. Things Schopenhauer hates toads, common sense, grand opera, religious dogmatics, action novels, women, published writers, the limitations to our understanding of the indestructibility of our essential being by death imposed on us by our narrow conception of time, spiders. Schopenhauer is to philosophy what The Smiths are to popular music so unrelentingly miserable that you can t help but cheer up when they stop I love it How about thisnonetheless, everyone desires to achieve old age , that is to say a condition in which one can say Today it is bad, and day by day it will get worse until at last the worst of all arrivesHe was lucky he lived in the nineteenth century The internet would have destroyed him if he d lived today Le Dos Hoy, Estos Aforismos De Arthur Schopenhauer Son Pura Dinamita Intelectual, Un Monumento A Lo Pol Ticamente Incorrecto Las Reflexiones Del Fil Sofo Alem N Sobre La Vida, El Amor O Las Mujeres Destilan Una L Cida Amargura Que Cuadra Perfectamente Con El Car Cter Pesimista De Su PensamientoHeredero De Kant, Schopenhauer, El Fil Sofo Anti Hegeliano Por Excelencia, Es Uno De Los Pensadores M S originales Que Ha Dado La Filosof A Occidental
