Skepticism, Apathy, Lebensmüdigkeit...

Has anyone experienced such symptoms after dwelling on philosophical issues for a while? It proves a bit difficult to bring concretion in this issue; it feels like being part of a thick foggy landscape.

Love your post. Love the word. Wanna get a houseboat, a copy of Service's best poems, two bottles of Bunnahabhain, a half-gallon of Chunky Monkey, and drift down the St Lawrence, picking up buxom mermaids as we go?

Doch mir wehrt des Stromes Toben,

Der ergrimmt dazwischen braust,

Seine Wellen sind gehoben,

Daß die Seele mir ergraust

Schiller

After I learn to pronounce this word, I will add it to my German vocabulary along with Schadenfreude.

Sometimes it's the stage following weltschmertz, if you don't take a break from philosophy, perhaps have a wanderjahr...or at least have an abend out on the burg, maybe eine kleine nachtmusik, maybe some leben machen mit eine madchen, maybe a nice slice of schwartzwalderkirschetorte.

I think the German verse is from a song called "Longing" lyrics by Schiller:
