On Women by Arthur Schopenhauer

Post by dreamer82 » November 24th, 2013, 6:48 am

This was written sometime in the early 1800's. Schopenhauer was a German philosopher. He shares many of the same ideas that we have and he considers monogamy to be unnatural and the decision to marry a very difficult decision. The link calls it misogyny but he wouldn't agree with that.

Schopenhauer has always been one of my favorite philosophers. He consistently hits bulls-eyes when taking aim at women's inherent nature.

My favorite Schopenhauer quote: "Women are suited to being the nurses and teachers of our earliest childhood precisely because they themselves are childish, silly and short-sighted, in a word big children." :lol:

"... to treat women with extreme reverence is ridiculous, and lowers us in their own eyes. "

If that's not American women I don't know what is!

Schopenhauer says that all women lie. Their nature is to be sneaky and their role is not to be her partner's "one and only" but to humankind and the next generation. So by given the opportunity to divorce easily and hook-up with others, the West has unleashed women to carry out her inborn role. She is free to be impregnated by other, worthy males and propagate civilization.

There is a little book of his aphorisms that is pretty funny and interesting. I happened to read an easier-to-read version of Shakespeare's "Othello" and there is a section where Iago, the villian, explains how all women lie. I thought it was pretty funny.
