Schopenhauer on career intellectuals

1 Like

This is a tough one. There is usually a lot of hypocrisy and self aggrandisement on both sides of any issue. If you refuse to take a position that has self serving hypocrites in it you’ll find yourself not able to take ANY position. Life is very complex, and the issues we face only make us hypocritical when we decide to take a position, and most of the time we don’t even know it. I don’t think anyone can escape being hypocritical in one way or another. The time to become alarmed is when someone comes in saying they have “The Answer”, like Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Tse Tung, or Andrew Jackson.

I found at least one book by Schopenhauer here.

Its project Gutenberg, it has all the classics of literature and philosophy where the books are public domain.

Great site btw
