Although the issues touched upon below required a book-length treatment to be done justice to, I’ve sought to present at least the main lines of my argument : Bernardo Kastrup.

Schopenhauer himself repeatedly characterized philosophy as an aesthetic undertaking, and Schopenhauer scholars have conceded this point as well.

What makes her book an important addition to Schopenhauer scholarship is her careful investigation of how this claim bears on the way he constructs his philosophical system.

One of the most timeless and beautiful meditations on reading comes from the 19th-century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (–). Finding time to read has never been an issue for me.

I read different books at different levels — you don’t put the same effort into Harry Potter as you do Seneca. Reading is the best way to get smarter.

Schopenhauer’s anthropology and sociology do not, in the manner of Hegel, commence with the state or with the community; they focus upon man—patient, suffering man who toils by himself—and show him certain possibilities of standing his ground and of living together with others. The book marked the summit of Schopenhauer’s thought.

Schopenhauer is considered to be the most readable of German philosophers. This book gives a succinct explanation of his metaphysical system, concentrating on the original aspects of his thought, which inspired many artists and thinkers including Nietzsche, Wagner, Freud, and Wittgenstein/5.
