Browning’s philosophy of life: His optimism
Browning did not identify himself with any particular school of philosophy. But he was a great nineteenth century thinker, having on the one hand a sympathetic attitude towards science and the spirit of intellectual enquiry, and the other a deep faith in God and the immortality of the soul. His poetry is an artistic exposition of his philosophical thoughts on god, the immortality of the soul, love, the world and human life – all inspired with his optimism.
