Hey guys, is Schopenhauer really considered edgy misogynistic and racist by the general public?
I put a few of his books on hold at my local library online, and now I'm scared to pick them up
Pic related my google results, notice the first one
>now I'm scared to pick them up
He's a valid and significant philosopher, why would you even think twice about just picking up some books by him let alone be "scared"
"Oh no someone has right wing beliefs!" Tell em to fuck off anon if anyone says anything, not like anyone will though
Anyone with an ideology they strongly adhere to, for example a racist, will find relations to and evidence for their world view in most things they read, assuming that's what they'd like to see.
Don't judge art based on who consumes it
I don't know about your library, but mine always has some kid working there.
They are always sitting there texting, then I get the book and leave.
I would bet money that they've never even heard of Schopenhauer
He was an abolitionist. Wow, Reddit sure is retarded today.
