odium figulinum -> trade-jealousy, potter's hatred

Odium figulinum

The politically correct are all in the same business together with the primitive racists, sexists and other chauvinists whom they criticise; for they are all focused on their own superiority. In the one case they are proudly conscious of being white, male or whatever else it might be; in the other case they are proudly conscious of not being racists or sexists.
Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Misrepresentation

It is natural for a feeling of mere indifference to exist between men, but between women it is actual enmity. This is due perhaps to the fact that odium figulinum in the case of men, is limited to their everyday affairs, but with women embraces the whole sex; since they have only one kind of business. Even when they meet in the street, they look at each other like Guelphs and Ghibellines.
Arthur Schopenhauer, On Women
