Arthur Schopenhauer wrote his essays and aphorisms in the financial hub city of Frankford Germany during the mid nineteenth century a world where business owners and financiers ruthlessly competed against one another to amass fortunes clerks chained to their desks toiled twelve hours a day uneducated day aborers ground themselves down into faceless mindless cogs of the urban wheel and upper class adies strolled the streets with parasols as they chattered incessantly over petty concerns but no matter what one s station in Night Music life ruthless financial baron toiling clerk chatteringady or manual drudge the monotonous hum of this bustling society gave few people encouragement or mental space to think independently or reflect philosophically But no hustle and bustle for Arthur Inheriting the family fortune and thus freed from any obligation to work for a Zecca: The Mint of Venice in the Middle Ages living Schopenhauer became aife Irreverent Photo Tools for Digital Photographers long bachelor and independent scholar keeping his distance from other people as if they were a colony of doltish novel readingepersAnd thus after rousing in the morning and before playing the flute partaking of unch and going for his two hour walk with his pet poodle Schopenhauer sat at his desk completely dedicating his time to writing And this collection is Schopenhauer at his hyper arrogant best as self appointed genius and highbrow aesthete shooting verbal barbs and passing harsh judgment on everyone and everything in sight would be philosophers journalists bookworms scholars iterati historians women among numerous othersThis book is great Saphyre literature as well as original philosophy the writing is so incredibly clear crystal clear actually a straightforward easy to follow elegant prose What a switch from hopelessly dry turgid stale academic philosophy with its endless references footnotes and ualificationsOn the topic of books and writing here is a uote which is vintage Schopenhauer The thoughts a man is capable of always express themselves in clear comprehensible and unambiguous words Those who put together difficult obscure involved ambiguous discourses do not really know what they want to say they have no than a vague consciousness of it which is only struggling towards a thought often however they also want to conceal from themselves and others that they actually have nothing to say Keep this in mind the next time you read an incomprehensible piece of writing in truth the burden is on the writer to make their thoughts clear no matter how impressive the author s credentialsAmong the topics address is aesthetics As always Schopenhauer never dances around an issue but goes right to the heart of the matter and tells itike it is Here is what he has to say on opera Strictly speaking one could call opera an unmusical invention for the benefit of unmusical minds For anybody with a keen interest in The Day the Crayons Quit listening to music these words have a very honest ringHere is a uote that is especially appropriate to our current age of information Students andearned men of every kind and every ago go as a rule in search of information not insight They make it a point of honor to have information about everything When I see how much these well informed people know I sometimes say to myself Oh how Knight Esquire little such a one must have had to think about since he has had so much time for reading The truth of this statement is compounded with the omnipresence of the internetOne uote this one capsulizing Schopenhauer s famous pessimistic view ofife No rose without a thorn But many a thorn without a rose Even if you don t agree you have to admire a brilliant memorable metaphorIf you are new to Schopenhauer or philosophy R J Hollindale provides an introduction which includes a mini history of philosophy eading up to Schopenhauer the cultural iterary and social context of Germany in the nineteenth century as well as a mini biography of Schopenhauer This is all you will need to have a rich appreciation *FOR ONE OF THE MOST LUCID AND INFLUENTIAL PHILOSOPHERS *one of the most Shadow Work: A New Guide to Spiritual and Psychological Growth lucid and influential philosophers the Western tradition Nietzsche is a ray of f n sunshine compared to Schopenhauer Check it If the immediate

of the willdesire that dovetails nicely with some Eastern philosophies Some nice views on aesthetics they give us a respite from the endlessoop of desire satisfaction desire since when we see something beautiful it releases us from that subjective prison of our own minds however briefly And some badass Law and Society: A Sociological Approach lines on thinking for yourself Fundamentally it is only our basic thoughts that possess truth andife for only these do we really understand through and through The thoughts of another that we have read are crumbs from another s table the cast off clothes of an unfamiliar guest DAMNUnder appreciated philosopher Gets too much of a bad rap for his pessimism when in fact I see a Just an Illusion - Side A lot ofife affirming aspects of his writing This is a bad book A really bad book Hell it s even a dangerous book Anyone that takes Schoperhanuer seriously is bad book A really bad book Hell it s even a dangerous book Anyone that takes Schoperhanuer seriously is to expect a rotten world prolong a rotten world and thus fortify the self fulfilling prophecy that nothing good has happened will happen and can happen Fortunately this entire foundation is grounded on extremely shoddy philosophySchopenhauer was known in Germany as that guy who Cybersecurity: Protecting Critical Infrastructures from Cyber Attack and Cyber Warfare (Zones of Religion) lectured in an empty room while Hegel filled the auditorium This isn t surprising Hegel was conducting Philosophy and Schopenhauer was conducting shrill whining before aive audience of one If you re going to pay a college to teach you philosophy istening to the euivalent of a comedian without jokes isn t a frugal investmentGramsci had a famous saying Pessimism of the intellect optimism of the will Schopenhauer would twist this into a pessimistic will guarantees a pessimistic intellect For Schopenhauer this is an ontological truth of the world iterally there is one grand will that exist independently of the phenomenal world and it expresses itself in Freedom Is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine, and the Foundations of a Movement living beings as a voracious Hobbesian creature that riddles us with torment misery and pain Kant s things in themselves are really this one thing the will in itself and through us and animals How does Schopenhauer know this How has he taken Kant s masterpiece and transcended the phenomenal world into the essence of the noumenon Simple sparse intuition It s rather ironic than that when Schopenhauer goes on to explain what the world wouldook ike without human subjects he maintains all the properties of mind space time causal relations in existence Clearly he didn t understand Kant very well One cannot explain the world without subjects or at the very east that description shouldn t iterally mirror our phenomenal depiction of it What s even asinine is how petulant and hostile he was to Hegelian philosophy when his own philosophy merely replaced Hegel s Absolute or Geist with a Will Whereas Hegel was a genius with extreme philosophical cunning able to piece together the necessary conclusions of his ontological foundation and at east project some form of progress upon mankind Schopenhauer The Craving leaves us with unconnected bits and pieces There is no progress There is no history There is only misery from time immemorial From these ridiculous ontological certainties Schopenhauer moves on to explain to us that women are trifling idiotic subspecies The businessman is the most authentic human being The majority of the population reuires religion because they re essentially a brain stem without frontalobes and Monarchies are the One of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century

Characters Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit

Ll here All in all once you have accepted suffering you l see it as something ordinary you won t be surprised because you will think of it as something normal Considering we have such a tragic origin and we are doomed to suffer we should conduct ourselves with some indulgence We must treat each other with tolerance patience forbearance and charity Everything has its silver Love in Catalina Cove (Catalina Cove lining The following chapter is about the vanity of existence which I found brilliant Every moment of ourife belongs to the present only for a moment then it belongs for ever to the past 31When I was younger I used to be haunted by that thought What is the present What is now this instant Merely a second Then it is all safe in the past The past is not The Million Dollar Goal last year it is already when I wrote The past is notast year That hopeless feeling of needing time is universal He then continued sueezing and kicking my soul with his thoughts on the human Securing Caite life and our needs that are impossible to satisfyAs things are we take no pleasure in existence except when we are striving after something in which case distance and difficulties make our goalook as if it would satisfy us an illusion which fades when we reach it or when engaged in purely intellectual activity in which case we are really stepping out of Trudy life so as to regard it from outsideike spectators at a play Whenever we are not involved in one or other of these things but directed back to existence itself we are overtaken by its worthlessness and vanity and this is the sensation called boredom 32There are other essays and aphorisms about religion philosophy ethics books and writing that ooze arrogance from time to time and introspection that are written with the same accessible anguage and express impressive sometimes provocative ideas We may not agree with a couple of them but we have to admit that this man was an endless source of creativity He expressed his ideas and backed them up with his own arguments and created a representation of the world that influenced many people He wasn t afraid of showing what he really thought about several subjects no matter how miserable and disturbing it all might be So here we are I am full of contradictions ike any other person I oved him and disliked him with the same intensity at the same timeKant s fan Hegel s foe and one of the greatest most interesting and provocative philosophers I have read so farActual rating 35 4 stars Also on my blog I m sorry I didn t read this two years ago when I thought pessimism was something reserved for those exiled from the general population s way of thinking Considering it was written in the mid 19th century everything in this book is highly accessible written fairly simply with only a few technicalities in between And if it s the pessimism you want then the opening essays are what you re after They re drenched in reasons why we as a species are an error in creation too highly adapted to deal with the demands we place on ourselves and so are destined for dissatisfaction He s not without his failings his view of women is not just absurd it s just plain wrong Having said that the man deserves extreme respect for believing totally in what he says Everything is drilled so forcefully that you can hardly do anything but nod agreement at times regardless of whether the truth is a melancholy one And it s not just that his tone is convincing he actually has plenty to say on plenty of topics The sections on ethics philosophy and the intellect and on thinking for yourself are fairly impressive He places before you feelings most would probably never pay much attention to that we fail to notice our good health but reversely are frustrated by the smallest of pains in a toe or finger which all highlights that we re doomed for discontent because we fail to acknowledge our benefits and so will keep striving for and ultimately unhappy This book isn t for those that are happy enough to drift through a delusional ife of optimism something I don t think is such a bad thing even from a pessimist s point of view If someone is fortunate enough to not be struck by the truths of this book then I would say eave them be However once gained they re almost impossible to shrug off You see this fact most evident in those people who suffer chronic depression and who are forever bleak even if they *themselves aren t completely aware of it But if you re helplessly *aren t completely aware of it But if you re helplessly to insight and clever thinking then you can hardly ignore reading this book It s seminal A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones for ife is short It appears to be a strange time to be alive I found the aphorisms especially to be a delight The misogyny in the middle kept this collection from being five stars Nietzsche s debt to S This is a great introduction to Schopenhauer small sweet er easily taken in bites every few days to chew on much easily digested than his most prominent work the World as Will and Representation I wish this had been my first introduction to Schopenhauer instead of WaWaR You earn uite a bit about his psyche and personality here and I think it sets up nicely for reading his extended philosophy Soapy as I ike to call him is one of my very favourite philosophers Not because I particularly identify or agree with his ideas the way I do say Hume but because he s fun to read in spite of his obnoxious fanboying over the insufferable Kant No Soapy s fun because he

Ithin a Godless world in which art morality and self awareness are our only salvation This innovative and pessimistic view proved powerfully influential upon philosophy and art affecting the work of Nietzsche and Wittgenstein among othe. ,

ATURAL EXPRESSION of human beings I guess he never read a history book nor inuired into an anthropological text Freedom of the press is dangerous and authoritative ruling is universal and ubiuitous thus necessary and never eradicable Any attempts at ethical behavior is really futile all we can do is stare at each other in recognition of our own self torment Every once and a while a genius may arise amongst us but overall 99% of us most be certain that we Gökyüzü Mavi Kaldı ll never achieve anything except the occasional brief mitigation of pure despairWhat s really so ironic about this ontological certainty with its barbarous conclusions is that Schopenhauer only writes in Aphorisms and brief points This is the guy who claims to have found the essence to all of reality and unlike Hegel he can t properly systemize anything All of his essays on any subject are helter skelter scattered internally contradictory and fail to paint a systematic picture beyondife sucks then you die ass holeNow I can understand why Schopenhauer held such pessimism and he s brave enough to point out that the world is filled with suffering depravity torment and pain The Romantic Movement was being suashed by the material and social reality of an ever growing industrializing capitalistic heartless mode of production Atomizations of the people and fractioning of the state were necessary results Alienation was subseuent The bourgeois revolutions were replacing the tyranny of 1 by the tyranny of the 1% Fortunately Marxism and other socialist thinkers offered the necessary optimism to Schopenhauer s defeatist pessimism And thus Schopenhauer sat in the dustbin of history for some time Now with the failure of Capitalism to be surmounted and any chance at a proper romanticism that incorporates a diverse and flourishing natural environment is Corps Values: Everything You Need to Know I Learned In the Marines leading Philosophers and many readers back to Schopenhauer He alleviates the readers initial guilt as being a full blown hedonist I suspectThis is why the man is dangerous instead of a revival of optimism and a good Marxist vaccination against a static view of miserable history we get poor philosophy terrible ontology an incoherent ethic and certainty in failure Each individual misfortune to be sure seems an exceptional occurrence but misfortune in general is the ruleArthur Schopenhauer On the Suffering of the WorldWe are here to shatter your warm and fuzzy world inhabited by unicorns and puppies that eat cupcakes every time it rains You may have the feeling of nevereaving that world And that s a valid choice we all have our particular ways of dealing with our existence If you do avoid Schopenhauer s work If you feel you can take it proceed to read this bookIn 2005 I bought a The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River little book called Schopenhauer para Principiantes I was uite young and I m not sure where I found his name I do remember the year because every time I buy a book I write the date on them aittle uirk I think it was during some period when I was obsessed with Hinduism and Buddhism and other aspects of the Eastern philosophy and religion Schopenhauer was heavily influenced by the UpanishadsAnyway I felt so close to his points of view I always thought I d enjoy reading his books And I did I enjoyed reading this one most of the times I decided to mention what I didn t THIEME Atlas of Anatomy: Head and Neuroanatomy like first And then his other thoughts that truly emanate intelligence and creativity That should be theast thing to be readLet s start with those simple minded creatures whose only job is to have children and were born to be nurses and teachers Yes womenOne needs only to see the way she is built to realize that woman is not intended for great mental or for great physical abour She expiates the guilt of ife not through activity but through suffering through the pains of childbirth caring for the child and subjection to the man to whom she should be a patient and cheering companion 49After reading that Schop certainly wasn t my favorite person in the world And that is just the beginning Do you think his misogynistic capabilities end therethey are childish silly and short sighted in a word big children The nobler and perfect a thing is the River Bodies (Northampton County, later and slowly does it

beauty and charm in order to get successful businessmen to support them okay I know a couple of those but do not generalize I beg you Just Beneath This Ink like all men aren t noble and perfect for god s sake It has been said that in hisast years he had a favorable opinion about women Well I haven t seen the page No redemption for you on that subject my friendNext topic freedom of the press Or the permit to sell poison whatever you want to call it For what cannot be put into the heads of the ignorant and credulous masses especially if you hold before them the prospect of gain and advantages And of what misdeeds is man not capable once something has been put into his head I very much fear is man not capable once something has been put into his head I very much fear that the dangers of press freedom outweigh its usefulness especially where there are The Psychology of Work legal remedies available for all grievances In any event however freedom of the press should be conditional upon the strictest prohibition of any kind of anonymity 89And then he focused on what he considered the perfect form of government Yeah I wasn t particularly fond of all his views developed in the essay Onaw and politicsMoving on to the things I enjoyed reading First *Hollingdale S Introduction Thoroughly *s introduction Thoroughly and well written He shared many facts of Schopenhauer s ife and work and he managed to keep me interested He chose several essays and aphorisms from the second volume of Parerga and Paralipomena 1851 to shed some ight on his amazing work and form an idea of his philosophySchopenhauer described brilliant ideas without using an extremely complicated The Woman You Want to Be: Margery Wilson's Complete Book of Charm language that only scholars would be able to understand The complexity of his thoughts and the way they are written simply outstanding It reminded me of my experience with Bertrand Russell while reading Why I Am Not a Christian and Other Essays on Religion and Related Subjects They have similar writing styles straightforward and kind of humorous at times Just the writing though Russell didn t think about S with great enthusiasm since he considered him basically a hypocrite because he didn tive according to what he preached I wouldn t knowThe first essay is about a main characteristic of Schopenhauer s philosophy Suffering We seem to

The New Police Selection System lets us so much as draw breath but pursues us allike a taskmaster with a whipAnd yet if every desire were satisfied as soon as it arose how would men occupy their ives
