All philosophers claim that a healthy mind must reside in a healthy body, but few walk the walk. They're either scrawny DYEL's or, even worse, obese.
What are some philosophers that actually hit the weights, or at least did some (any!) kind of sport?
Ignoring that he wasn't strictly speaking a philosopher, skipped leg day and was a manlet, there's this guy. But I don't know anyone else, hell, even nietzche, who always talked about muh ubermensch was DYEL.
Socrates was a soldier who fought against Sparta. Even in his old age, he often was in the gymnasium exercising.
Plato was a wrestler.
Wittgenstein fought in WWI so he was surely pretty fit.
I like to think that Machiavelli was in good shape, especially after he was exiled.
Aurelius was definitely fit and saw the importance of having a healthy body.
this is the O.S.S. from WWII, literally the elite of the elite and high school athletes would fucking destroy them 1v1.
Sorry OP but I think it's only fascist manlets that get that swole.
Pic related, Beautiful wordsmith in fiction, more successful military impromptu commander than Mishima, more of a political writer than a philosopher, but didn't forget about dat aesthetics. Mussolini's go to guy.
The greeks worked out, but bodybuilding was not invented by the time most philosophers were writing and their jobs were 0 physical labor so unfortunately all philosophers besides the greeks were DYEL.
Camus played sports but thats about it.
He is a lifter who had mental issues and became what you see now.
He is entirely supported by his family so is a pseudo bodybuilder and artist.
He is a nice guy, or was desu. But he really has no ontological security and I began to think most of his displays of not caring are actually massive neon indicators of insecurity.
That all being said sometimes he is lucid about something. But he has internalized a lot of bro-science and bro-philosophy. None educated biological fallacies everywhere etc.
I stopped following him but still wish him well.
huh, from this video I almost started thinking this guy had some sort of vision that I could appreciate
then I checked his 500px and it's all high-school tier snaps
I guess this is what happens when you have passion but no direction from a instructional authority
This is supposedly JVD, a /lit/izen and /fit/izen who created a little bit of a buzz here some months ago.
not too flattering a pic, desu, but looks quite athletic.
No, trigger discipline is for people who don't want a negligent discharge in the face of their 5 year old child.
But hey, I don't care what you do personally, be a retarded Darwin Award recipient if you want to.
the /shit/poster, ladies and gentlemen: he manages to add nothing to a discussion while simultaneously undermining it only slightly, attempting to satirize what he replies to with an image (or, perhaps more accurately, a meme) that he believes represents his input. The thing about the common /shit/poster is that they can't express their own opinions in ways other than previously posted things that they've stolen. This specimen could be derogatorily labeled a 'memer,' though this poster is a little bit more obscure than the average memer.
No I don't. I did several years ago; but it seemed a fitting description of someone who seemed proud of handling a firearm recklessly, and not wearing a seatbelt, but clearly he's just a mediocre shitposter.
