Arthur Schopenhauer reminds me of a philosopher who was super pessimistic about the society around him. I am not judging on his life’s philosophy. Leaving the external world around him must have taken a lot of courage and living in solitude with his poodle named Atman. Schopenhauer read, translated, and was influenced by Bhagwad Gita.
With so many things going around us. So many things to become and acquire in a career. So many things to buy. So many places to travel. Schopenhauer must have ended up being the boring human in this era.
