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 never leaving 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 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; a little 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 like first And then his other thoughts that truly emanate intelligence and creativity That should be the last 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 labour She expiates the guilt of life 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 later and slowly does it mature The man attains the maturity of his reasoning powers and spiritual faculties hardly before his twenty eighth year; the woman with her eighteenth And even then it is only reasoning power of a sort a very limited sort 50Yes ignoble and imperfect ladies Women are portrayed as little human beings that make babies and never mature and have to hold on to their 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 like all men aren't noble and perfect for god's sake It has been said that in his last 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 therefore that the dangers of press freedom outweigh its usefulness especially where there are 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 On law and politicsMoving on to the things I enjoyed reading First Hollingdale's introduction Thoroughly researched and well written He shared many facts of Schopenhauer's life and work and he ma

REVIEW Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit

Aphorismen zur LebensweisheitS politics women and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last work Parerga and Paralipomena which he published in He depicts humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil each individual absolutely free within a Godless world.
