Arthur Schopenhauer's On the Basis of Morality is a treatise that departs from orthodox Kantian ethical principles to include metaphysics in a unique discussion of ethics centered on human compassion. Leaving behind duty and self-interest, Schopenhauer suggests that true moral actions are the stuff of altruism. Schopenhauer's concise yet artistic prose, along with his gentle and optimistic treatment of his subject matter, makes On the Basis of Morality a much-needed pleasant and hopeful discussion of ethics.
