Pessimist NotebooksRegular price $ 25.00
This set of three notebooks pays tribute to three pessimistic philosophers: Pascal, Chamfort, and Schopenhauer. Each notebook contains an introduction to one of these philosophical thinkers. The rest of the notebook waits to be filled with your own philosophical musings.
This set of notebooks tells us: "The Pessimists remind us that what ultimately plunges us into sadness and anger isn’t disappointment, but hope. They therefore counsel us to get sad before life dashes our hopes at a moment of its own choosing. Reading these pessimists isn’t actually a gloomy exercise. We frequently burst out laughing, laughter that comes from a pent-up pressure we may sometimes feel to be inanely cheerful. At last, here are people who allow us to give full vent to our darkness and spleen, people who reassuringly inform us that life is fundamentally rather than incidentally miserable."
