Controversial Dialectic is the art of disputing, and of disputing in such a way as to hold one's own, whether one is in the right or the wrong-per fas et nefas. A man may be objectively in the right, and nevertheless in the eyes of bystanders, and sometimes in his own, he may come off worst...

From the Back Cover:

A disciple of Kant and a significant factor in shaping Nietzsche's thinking, Arthur Schopenhauer worked from the foundation that all knowledge derives from our experience of the world but that our experience is necessarily subjective and formed by our own intellect and biases: reality, therefore, is but an extension of our own will.

In this essay, translated by THOMAS BAILEY SAUNDERS (1860-1928) and first published in English in the 1890s, Schopenhauer explores stratagems for rational debate: by "controversy" Schopenhauer means deliberate provocation of an intellectual opponent, and as a way to shock one's own thinking out of its complacency. Also discussed are intellectual approaches to appreciating beauty, an appreciation of "genius and virtue," and more.

Students of philosophy and of 19th-century intellectualism will find this a fascinating read.

About the Author:

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) elabore dans sa jeunesse un systeme philosophique dont il explore les consequences dans le domaine de la morale et de la religion. Il passe l essentiel de sa vie a son discours.
