El arte de envejecer
Modern society denies the aging process. It compares aging with a disease, which should be eliminated. The philosopher Wilhelm Schmid, on the other hand, describes aging as a harmonious and necessary process that is consistent with the natural cycle of things. Nature is wise; so at this stage of life it gives us enough time to transmit the experiences lived and support the youngest; but also to accumulate new experiences and celebrate life more consciously. Schmid considers it to be one of the ingredients needed to age senselessly.
Schmid does not seek eternal youth or ignore the passage of time, but introduces us to a true art of ageing and what we really gain by getting older. And it does, with surprising clarity and amenity, describing its own search process in ten steps. Sosiego is, in short, a small jewel of practical philosophy.
