About the Author:

Arthur Schopenhauer was born in Danzig in 1788. He received his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Jena, and in 1818 he published The World as Will and Representation. It was not until the publication of Parerga and Paralipomena in 1851, however, that his ideas received widespread attention and he gained international fame. He died in Frankfurt in 1860.
