I'm a very uneducated man but isn't the Epistemology in the first book of The World as Will the one the modern masses subscribe to correct? Basically his idea of representation, subject/object etc. This is how most people view the world obviously not in a complicated philosophical way but just how science goes over how the brain works and how we view objects.

Did Schop meditate? I did some light googling but couldn't find anything conclusive. I know he read the Upanishads a lot, but did he practice meditation too?

Stop reading books, start thinking.

Ok honestly it seems to me that his whole “denying the will to live” is just cope

Why? He only “denies” things he can’t get. He wanted sex with hot young girls and couldn’t get it. So it’s not actually denying anything, just coping.

If he really wanted to deny the will to live he lay naked on concrete floor all day and eat nothing but raw potatoes. But he actually lived a comfortable life and had a nice house, had pets, ate good food, drank, socialized, etc.

> One can see this especially in how much he praises physiognomy despite being an ugly motherfucker; I bet he saw a chad when he looked in the mirror.
You're judging him as an old man which isn't really fair. He looked pretty good young.
>inb4 "he subjectively doesn't look good to me"

Another reminder to Neechfags that Nietzsche loved circumcised cock, and wanted anyone who didn't share his taste for circumcised cock to be shot:
>Yet I ask in the future not to provide me with these [anti-Semitic] mailings: I fear, in the end, for my patience. Believe me: this abominable “wanting to have a say” of noisy dilettantes about the value of people and races, this subjection to “authorities” who are utterly rejected with cold contempt by every sensible mind (e.g., E. Dühring, R. Wagner, Ebrard, Wahrmund, P. de Lagarde—who among these in questions of morality and history is the most unqualified, the most unjust?), these constant, absurd falsifications and rationalizations of vague concepts “germanic,” “semitic,” “aryan,” “christian,” “German”—all of that could in the long run cause me to lose my temper and bring me out of the ironic benevolence with which I have hitherto observed the virtuous velleities and pharisaisms of modern Germans.
>You have committed one of the greatest stupidities—for yourself and for me! Your association with an anti-Semitic chief expresses a foreignness to my whole way of life which fills me again and again with ire or melancholy. (Christmas 1887: Letter to Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche)
>Although you have so far shown little belief in my solvency, I still hope to prove that I am someone who pays his debts – for example against you... I'll just have all anti-Semites shot... (Turin, around January 4, 1889: letter to Franz Overbeck)
Nietzsche's life-affirmation amounts to:
>Simping for Lou Salomé
>Guzzling cum à la Shalom
So again, ditch the (((atheist))) cuck, and get with an atheist chad (pic related).

A reminder to all Neechfags that Nietzsche loved circumcised cock, and wanted anyone who didn't share his taste for circumcised cock to be shot. When he wasn't simping for Lou Salomé, he was guzzling cum à la Shalom.
Needless to say, why waste your time with an (((atheist))) cuck, when you can get with an atheist chad (pic related)?

I was walking outside and of course I catched conversations from random people. Everytime there was couple and I listened what the woman said I tried to imagine what it would be like if the exact same thing was said by a child. And everytime it fitted PERFECTLY.
While the things the men said were not childlike.

Wtf this fucking guy was right.

Post your top three philosophers and anons make assumptions about you. I'll start with the edgy 4chan user classic: Schopenhauer, Cioran, Zapffe
