This is a book of many virtues and vices.The book reads well. It deserves to be well read.surpass(es) all current English-language treatments of Schopenhauer. David Cartwright, Schopenhauer-Jahrbuch an ambitious book and, on the whole, a highly readable one. Magee moves with confidence and ability among the connecting structures of philosophy, the history of ideas, the arts, and human psychology. Diane Collinson, Philosophically Quarterly Magee s study should however not merely be reviewed but also read; for it is thorough, lucid and wide-ranging.a substantial work. Times Higher Education Supplement He brings out well the development of the German philosopher s thought, and the fact that in the course of doing so he does some philosophising of his own increases the interest of the volume. Further, Schopenhauer s influence on a number of other eminent people is discussed much more at length than is usual in monographs on his philosophy. As for the author s criticism of Schopenhauer, it seems to me sound. Frederick Copleston, The month Philosophers have long known that Schopenhauer was the first of the very few philosophers Wittgenstein studied intensely. Magee supplies the detail of the debt with impressive and original fullness. Bryan Magee may leave himself open to critical nigglings of various degrees of significance by his enthusiastic resolution to stand up for Schopenhauer and not just to expound him from a safe distance. The compensation is that his own excitement is communicated to the reader.
