Pessimist Handbook

This is part of a book I am putting together – although whether it ever sees the light of day is another matter. In any case, at least something will have been published in this much-shortened edition. So, this book is free to any sucker that wants to read it. It’s full of aphorisms with a short commentary attached to each. I can be rude to my readers because it’s free, and having paid...

It is improbable that our ‘knowledge’ goes much further than what is absolutely necessary for the preservation of life. Morphology teaches us that an animal’s senses, nerves and brain develop in proportion to the difficulty it has in feeding itself. - Nietzsche.
