What's the best book for someone who's idealistic about life to the point of ruin? Someone who is constantly searching for better than what he has.
so you think leo was bashing moscow society and telling them "to be as noble as the cossacks"? I read the story as a one about the grass not being greener on the other side and everyone having their own shitiness.
Those two things don't really correspond to each other; 'constantly searching for better than what he has' isn't idealism, isn't contentment, but is basically the opposite. Anyway, the real target here is the latter statement, and the relevant wisdom literature, if you refuse the Bible, is pic related.
There ar 2 spanish speaking philosphers who talk about the idealist asu describe and not the ideologit as they call the idealistic philosophy current''Since one came from ideas and the other from ideals.
The books u can read ar El hombre mediocre, and also the revolt of masses from Ingenieros and the other from Ortega y gasset.
