  1. It's quite simple.

    The solipsist denies reality. Everything he feels is an illusion.

    The escapist knows very well that reality exists, and it is hard for him. He runs away from it because he can hardly stand some of its manifestations. But he definitely won't deny the reality. The escapist's train of thought is more subtle: it seems to say, ” Yes, there is reality, but there is nothing so interesting about it. fictional worlds, dreams, books, movies, games are quite another matter, they are valuable and interesting.”

  2. In everything. Solipsism is a philosophical position that consists in inverting the internal and external – the world external to a person is declared internal by Solipsism, a product of consciousness, so the human psyche is completely primary and external to this world.

    Escapism – the desire to escape from reality. The solipsist does not have to be an escapist; he can take the same part in the life of the world as any other person, standing in his own position. An escapist doesn't have to be a solipsist; there are a lot of easier ways to escape reality.

  3. It is hardly possible to compare these two terms. One is philosophical, the other is closer to psychology.�

    Solipsism was first described by the Greek sophist Gorgias (c. 483-375 BC):
    1. Nothing exists
    2. Even if something exists, nothing can be known about it.
    3. Even if something may be known about it, knowledge about it cannot be passed on to others.
    Much of the sophists 'point was to show that “objective” knowledge is impossible.

    Solipsism is derived from the Latin solus, meaning “one”, and ipse, meaning “I”)”It's the philosophical idea that there is only one's own mind. Solipsism holds that knowing anything outside one's own mind is wrong; the external world and other minds cannot be known and cannot exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, Solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the external world and other minds do not exist. This position is considered irrefutable by Solipsists, since the Solipsist considers himself the only true authority, and all the others are the creations of their own minds.

    Escapism is the avoidance of unpleasant, boring, difficult, scary, or banal aspects of everyday life. Escapism can also be used as a term to define actions taken by people to relieve persistent feelings of depression or general sadness. For example, King Ludwig II of Bavaria was an escapist who “ran away” from everything bad into the world of Wagnerian mythology.

    Billion – dollar industries-movies, theaters, the Internet, music, literature, poetry-work for escapism, in other words, people want Bread and Circuses. �This is designed to stimulate people's growing desire to escape or eliminate themselves from the stresses, difficulties, and strains of everyday life. However, some forms of human existence are normal ways of healthy escapism (for example, eating, sleeping, exercising, sexual activity). Freud considered the presence of escapist fantasies to be a necessary element in people's lives: “They cannot exist on the meager satisfaction they can derive from reality.” Drugs and alcohol are not a form of escapism, because they change the mind, make a person completely disconnect from reality and are never able to return to reality.�

    Norwegian psychologist Frode Stenseng argues that there are two forms of escapism with different outcomes, depending on motivational suspicion. Escapism in the form of self-destruction (suicide) originates from the motive to escape from unpleasant thoughts and emotions. Escapism is a form of self-development that originates from the motivation to gain positive experiences through activities and discover new aspects of life. In other words, you can make an “escape” from the dreary reality with the help of various forms of escapism. And it is not necessary to leave your life to get rid of depression.�

    The most terrible thing about escapism is, as they say, the desire – ” I went into myself, I will not return soon.” Make sure that when you delve into the Internet, games, or books, you have a clear head and know that your mental images are just a virtual reality that you have invented. Be able to return to real life. The best advice is to learn to LIVE IN THE HERE AND NOW. Escapism is just an assistant to survive stress, pain, separation, separation, failure, trouble, illness, etc. But this is not a way of thinking or living.
