    I' d include pessimism as well. I've always found it strange how people will deride overt optimism, but let pessimism get off on a free ride.

    They are both part of the same spectrum just from opposite ends. Extreme pessimism is as distorting as extreme optimism.

    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
