Pessimist Notebooks

3 Notebooks, 3 Thinkers

The history of philosophy is filled with some fascinating 'schools of thought' dedicated to tackling life's big problems in distinctive ways. We've created this exquisite set of notebooks in honour of The Pessimists.  

Each notebook carries an introduction to a great Pessimistic thinker on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and otherwise empty pages for your own projects.

Pessimists featured in these notebooks: Pascal, Chamfort, Schopenhauer

The Pessimists remind us that what ultimately plunges us into sadness and anger isn’t disappointment, but hope. They therefore counsel us to get sad before life dashes our hopes at a moment of its own choosing. Reading these pessimists isn’t actually a gloomy exercise. We frequently burst out laughing, laughter that comes from a pent-up pressure we may sometimes feel to be inanely cheerful. At last, here are people who allow us to give full vent to our darkness and spleen, people who reassuringly inform us that life is fundamentally rather than incidentally miserable.

Other School of Thought Notebooks in the series:  The ExistentialistsThe StoicsThe Anti-CapitalistsThe Buddhists, and The Feminists.
