Previous Section   271. EVERY PHILOSOPHY IS THE PHILOSOPHY OF A PERIOD OF LIFE   Next Section

Every Philosophy is the Philosophy of a Period of Life.  The period of life in which a philosopher finds his teaching is manifested by his teaching; he cannot avoid that, however elevated above time and hour he may feel himself.  Thus, Schopenhauer's philosophy remains a mirror of his hot and melancholy youth — it is no mode of thought for older men.  Plato's philosophy reminds one of the middle thirties, when a warm and a cold current generally rush together, so that spray and delicate clouds and, under favourable circumstances and glimpses of sunshine, enchanting rainbow-pictures result.
