“There are truths which are best recognized by mediocre minds, because they are best adapted for them” pg. 117
Bailing around the 10% mark. I think philosophy books are just not for me... this is going straight over my head and I just don‘t get anything out of it. I had a similar reaction to Peter Singer‘s One World Now book. For me these books are more suited as text books rather than laymen trying to get some exposure to the ideas.
My fave non-fiction novel. Yes, I admit, its sexist even for the time but that's forgivable if you know the man's history with women. Beyond that its a concise and timely philosophy that encourages one to become their own person. I even prefer it to Thus Spoke Zarathustra (which it summarizes) although the imagery suffers for the sake of brevity.
Reading this book translated from the German as suggested by @megt in my Littens book challenge! Tesla is not happy a book is on my lap and not her so she extends a paw to remind me she's there❤️📖

It wasn't what i hoped to expect, the book was about personal views about its time Germany and such. To put simply; it is neither a novel nor story to enjoy or learn from. This kind of book for those who study philosophy's history.
