Schopenhauer's Joke

"There is even a comic side to seeing innumerable individuals of whom each regards himself alone as real, at any rate from a practical point of view, and all others to a certain extent as mere phantoms."
--Arthur Schopenhauer, On the Basis of Morality (1841), trans. E.F.J. Payne (Bobbs-Merrill, 1965), p. 132.
