Certainly, as per the book cover, one can clearly see Arthur Schopenhauer is from the world of early 19th century European civilization. But what the German philosopher has to say on the topic of wisdom is as relevant today for women and men living anywhere on the globe as it was when he wrote his book back in the s in Frankfurt, Germany. With The Wisdom of Life, Sir Arthur reverses his previous judgement and disposition to embrace and encourage us to live a life filled with great joy and happiness.
As to how exactly such a blessed mode of being is to be achieved is the subject of this book. He scoffs at individuals who are cynical about experiencing happiness that good fortune bestows on them in the present moment, likening such negativity to pouring excellent wine into a sack full of bile.
Especially in more recent years, I attempt to see the beauty in each moment — and one way to keep my vision clear is to do my best in avoiding stinkers and all the many smellfungi. But there is another angle at work here. He loves to do what he does well and, having done it well, he loves to do it better. In other words, for many individuals, Bronowski is right and Schopenhauer is wrong. Nothing really pleases, or excites, or interests him, for sensual pleasure is quickly exhausted, and the society of philistines soon becomes burdensome, and one may even get tired of playing cards.
