Pessimist notebook set

The Pessimists : 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.

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

Dimensions: 12.5 x 17.8cm
