PDF KINDLE (Geschlecht und Charakter Eine prinzipielle Untersuchung) AUTHOR Otto Weininger
S review but he s not writing at such a simplistic level that similarly simplistic criticism can be hurled To put t simply he s not engaging Geschichte der Abderiten in cheap propaganda buts engaged Crystal Horizon in a sustained philosophicalnvestigation As the subtitle suggests Seeds in the Heart: Japanese Literature from Earliest Times to the Late Sixteenth Century its truly an Heidegger and the Will: On the Way to Gelassenheit investigation of fundamental principles The second point I wish to make follows from the first and which I have already addressed Masculine and feminine refers to ualities Notndividuals Once this The Healing Land: The Bushmen and the Kalahari Desert is bornen mind the simplistic taunt of misogyny should be easily dismissed Another tip for the modern reader especially someone who has familiarity with evolutionary psychology The Secret Box is to approach the text from the perspective of this modern science Weininger uite amazingly anticipates many of the paradigms that have come to be associated with this field The last uarter of the text where Weininger analyzes the nature of the Jewish race and draws parallels between them and the feminine psychology has drawn criticism forts supposed anti semitism Read n the cold and clear light of modernity this portion of the text does ndeed strike one as uncomfortable and Einblicke in light of the ungainly resurgence of many old chauvinistic and racist attitudesn our still young century as Fated: Blood and Redemption indefensible But once again I would urge the reader to approach the whole text with an open mind and to once again realize that the authors not talking on the level of biology but s nvestigating certain fundamental psychological frameworks that characterize the human species Jewishness does not refer Wir möchten auch vom Arno-Schmidt-Jahr profitieren in Weininger s usage to a uality of a particular group of people buts nstead an archetype that can be nhabited by anyone Now for the conclusion What I liked The book s literally overflowing with great uotes subtle n their penetrating understanding of human psychology Weininger seems to me to be spot on with his fundamental philosophical assertion regarding the division of human nature The Powers That Be: Global Energy for the Twenty-first Century and Beyond into masculine and feminine and his analysis of the different modes of functioning peculiar to these two sensibilities seems to me to be largely correct as well In addition I think his characterization of the nature of genius which he reserves for the masculine elements uncompromising but spot on What I didn t like There are no two ways about t Weininger s vision of the universe s dark dreary absolute and despairing He Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit is what Nietzsche would rudely but effectively characterize as a life denier His profound nihilism seeps through the pores of every wordn this book and he seems to take as ncontrovertibly true that disgust for existence s an absolutely natural state for any thinking man This disgust for life this resenntiment to borrow from Nietzsche once again almost functions as his basic philosophical assumption so to speak It s a tricky situation for the reader for f you do not share Weininger s assumption uncharitable reviewers have called Reitergayschichten I it his pathology then the entire book does begin to seem like the seductively articulate ravings of a diseased soul In addition and this could be related to his essentially life denying worldview the books surprisingly religious There s no crude proselytizing Weininger s too subtle for that But he US Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam is fanatically obsessive about his faith and his philosophical framework leads almostnevitably to the tenets of his Christian faith Harry's Bar: The Life Times of the Legendary Venice Landmark ie mans born Traces in the Desert: Journeys of Discovery across Central Asia in sin womans bad pleasure わたしに××しなさい! 3 [Watashi ni xx Shinasai! 3] ismmoral this world German at a Glance: Phrase Book Dictionary for Travelers is a vale of tears Hisnterpretation of his faith Blühende Heide is harsh and can almost make him seem like a fanatic at times Last but not least there are a few pagesn the middle and towards the end of the book Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection in which Weininger takes on some of his contemporaries these sections are understandably dated and can comfortably be skipped So where do we end up Thiss one of the few books that I ve been profoundly affected by which I enjoyed tremendously which I ve learnt a great deal from but nonetheless which I cannot recommend whole heartedly
WHY BECAUSE WHILE THERE ARE MANY PASSAGES THAT ARE Because while there are many passages that are profoundly right as to be blindingly self obvious there are uite a few that are so appallingly terribly fantastically wrong But Weininger Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath is such a genius his arguments so seductive and his basic heart seems to be right thatt Watching Dallas: Soap Opera and the Melodramatic Imagination is easy to get suckednto the whirlpool of his nihilistic genius affirming frenzy But that George V's Children is not really my call to make Read the book with an open mind bempressed with the depth of one young man s blinding passion for truth but take t with a huge grain of salt With these provisos I think one can learn a great deal from the product of poor Otto Weininger s tormented brain If you like books that are bat shit crazy and I certainly do then this one should be at the top of your list It rivals Martin Luther s On the Jews and their Lies Houston Stewart Chamberlain s It rivals Martin Luther s On the Jews and their Lies Houston Stewart Chamberlain

It Is In Thatis Die vier Jahreszeiten in that that makes this book so wrong From proposition to conclusion that from misconstrued Neo Kantianntuitions as replacements for actual data makes his arguments being misappropriated and wrong Wittgenstein throughout his Philosophical Investigations argues the Mituri, rituri, simboluri în societatea contemporană importance of differencesn philosophy however Unlike Weininger he merely argues just differences not the differences between good or bad better or worse These differences being such as family likeness and graduations Philosophy henceforth does not prescribe but describe only describe don t explain Therein there does not exist a moral philosophical graduation between sexes or races and whose essences are neither prescribed as being essentially higher or lower than another In reference back to Wittgenstein s letter to Moore his enormous mistake Kyoko Karasuma Bd. 5 is not his apparently bigoted conclusions but as to how he came about to said conclusions Give early 20th century Austrian Jew Otto Weininger credit forntellectual consistency After penning the anti Semitic violently misogynistic proto Nazi screed Geschlecht und Otto Weininger's controversial book Sex and Character first published n Vienna n 1903 The Huguenot Sword is a prime example of the conflicting discourses central tots time antisemitism scientific racism and biologism misogyny the cult and crisis of masculinity psychological Poetic Machinations: Allegory, Surrealism, and Postmodern Poetic Form introspection versus empiricism Germandealism the women's movement. Harakter he followed his own theories to their logical conclusion and killed himself at age 23 The book published after his death was something of a hit throughout EuropeWe wizened postmodernists want to dismiss Weininger out of hand but what s so cringe worthy about his text In the Shadow of Empires is once you spend ten pages ont you cannot dismiss ts genius even as you shrivel from ts monstrous conclusions Namely That only the male of the species The 101 Dalmatians is truly sentient capable of good evil or art Women are empty vessels which exist purely to perpetuate the species Jews by which Weininger means the Platonicdeal of Jews and not Jews themselves only to repeatedly contradict himself by employing the logic of racialbloodline anti Semitism are effete subhumans doomed to an existence of stunted obseuious passivity before Aryan supermen And the worst of the worst are the damnable double whammy Jewesses who he goes off on at some length I blame his motherA train wreck of a treatise god awful yet perversely mesmerizing A worthwhile read for any scholar of the Hapsburg Empire or the From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America intellectual foundations of the Holocaust I can t believe I never really reviewed this book only gave some really long uotes fromt Possibly one of the The Story of the Orchestra interesting cultural phenomenas of the 20th century The books at times Only Say the Word idiotic onts misogyny but yet Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge its also erudite on the anxiety of living a life amongst decadence and the need for genius amongst the general depravity of society kind ofn the way we as an American Idol voting Joel Olsteen and The Shack reading text messaging at all times society are decadent and deprave This book s kind of an attempt to justify the authors reason to go on n a scientific manner to go on though he needs to make very many wild and outlandish statements of opinion and call them facts The guy was a walking cesspool of hatred n all likelihood and most of t was probably Talking Cures and Placebo Effects inner conflicts and self loathing that he tried to vent out on to the world An anti semitic Jew and a homophobic Homosexual who lived out of step with the world around him he was really uite something Fortuna This books really terrible just unimaginably trashy but t does have an ntriguing backstory and there s the odd fact that Wittgenstein apparently counted Weininger as one of his The Bewitched Wolf influences I m slightly annoyed by some of the reviews here that say things along the lines Whether or not you agree with him you must admit he was brilliant Because no actually this books an embarrassing morass of mysogny racism bad science romantic cliches and An Unreasonable Match / An Unconventional Duenna it s all very badly written I once made a good faith effort to readt but couldn t do than a few chapters In regards to gender egalitarianism feminism Mgtow and the battle of the sexes This book Voodoo Woman ( New Orleans Mysteries is a must read thiss the ultimate Mgtow book Finn (Anderson Billioniares Book 1) it annihilates the aids known as feminism at the root Man must bendifferent to feminism and women Last Chance Hero in generaln this day and age The Suffragettes and Second Wave Feminist s are mere Officer Buckle and Gloria imitators of Males and could never see their efforts bear fruit Euality between the sexess a lie A genius like Weininger Antolog�a Patri�tica is very rare hes one of the few writers of European Culture Political Theory: An Introduction i regard as genius I know this book has annfamous reputation thanks to the feminist slags who can t look Two Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in the mirror and arencapable of self reflection and analysis I read this book because What Is Madness?
