About this Item

Hardcover. 508 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.7in. x 1.5in.This is the second of three volumes outlining the seminal treatise by the famous German philosopher Schopenhauer on the topic of Will. Where other German philosophers are incomprehensible and obscure, Schopenhauer is clear and concise, detailing within this fascinating book the dualities of reason and emotion with a genius and originality still arguably unsurpassed in the universities of today. Schopenhauers work was extraordinarily influential, having been read and studied by such great minds as Joseph Conrad, Thomas Mann, Leo Tolstoy, Nietzsche, and Freud. This marvellous exposition of metaphysics, aesthetics and ethics will prove a fascinating and informative read to anyone interested in the subject. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788- 1860) was a German philosopher best known for the work contained within the three volumes of this treatise. Originally published in 1909, we are proud to republish this rare text with a new introductory biography of the author. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781443731904

About this title

Synopsis:

This vintage book contains the second volume of Arthur Schopenhauer’s 1818 treatise, "The World As Will And Idea". One of the most influential philosophical works of the nineteenth century, it is Schopenhauer’s greatest endeavour, and constitutes the summation of a lifetime of contemplation. In it, he postulates that our existence is fuelled by an unsatisfied will, perpetually searching for satisfaction. This fascinating book is highly recommended for students of psychology, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860) was a seminal German philosopher. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

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.
