The Consolations of Philosophy - post III

Using the atory of Montaigne the idea of inadequacy is covered with the philosopher being one who at first felt intimitaed by the great works that had preceded him but then he chose to write about those inadequacies and the result is a catalogue of normality that we could all refer to.

Dare I say it I particularly liked his thoughts about academic books with Montaigne commenting that most were boring and too difficult to get through.

Things then move to look at love and the introduction to Schopenhauer introduces you to a charater that is surely one of the first Cure fans in existence well before his time. But more on that later....
