Having read a ridiculously short (oh, 25 pages, maybe) introduction to Schopenhauer (feat. Bryan Magee), I discover in myself a fascination with Schop's attitude to reality and by his focus on the aesthetic experience (or art) as the only relief (temporary, incomplete, ultimately doomed though it is) from the evil of existence.

I don't mean to say that I buy into his attitude. Certrainly, I'll reserve judgment until I've actually read his work (said to be sublime, at least in the original German). But the way his attitude was presented by Magee is, well, aesthetically appealing to me. Hmm. What would Schopenhauer make of that?

P.S. TAU and HUJI both sent me word that my application papers have, in fact, been received, and that perhaps, in the indeterminate future, they may even be processed.

Current Mood: little
