Parerga and Paralipomena

“Philosophy is a science, and as such has no articles of faith; accordingly, in it nothing can be assumed as existing except what is either positively given empirically, or demonstrated through indubitable conclusions.”
~Arthur Schopenhauer – Parerga and Paralipomena

Insomnia, sometimes, makes me think at some books I’ve read, also brings back some Mozart sound-waves….especially the piano concert no.26 in D&A major 😉

Schopenhauer is a bold diver of deep and dark water of human condition that showed the failures of the existence manquée, whose basis is egocentrism, strong attachment for material stuff, and a shallow vision of the mysteries of life. In short, this book is a superlative tractate on moral philosophy, an essential companion for learned people.

If you’re a book worm and enjoy philosophy you should not miss Parega & Paralipomena.a8de57f2-15bc-48c0-9075-da0b956be99d
