227 | A Different Kind of Pessimism

July 30, 2019

The world is a crappy place. That is, according to Arthur Schopenhauer. On this week’s Gradcast, hosts Nick Handfield-Jones and Connor Chato interview Ignacio Moya, who tells us about this famous German philosopher’s arguments for philosophical pessimism. We talk about why Schopenhauer thought the world is this way and what he proposed to do about that. Plus, we ask Ignacio what his own thoughts are about philosophical pessimism. To get in contact with Ignacio, message him on Twitter @ignaciomoyaa
