In Deutsche Welle, philosopher Svenja Flaßpöhler on covid isolation
I would like mention the famous saying of the French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal: All people's misfortune stems from the fact that they can't stay quietly in a room. How can we deal with the boredom of isolation?
From a philosophical point of view, it was not only Blaise Pascal, but also Martin Heidegger, who was very eager that people should find their true nature. Instead of worrying about what to get, one has to worry about one's own existence.
