These essays are a valuable criticism of life by a man who had a wide experience of life, a man of the world, who possessed an almost inspired faculty of observation. Schopenhauer, of all men, unmistakably observed life at first hand. There is no academic echo in his utterances; he is not one of a school; his voice has no formal intonation; it is deep, full-chested, and rings out its words with all the poignancy of individual emphasis, without bluster, but with unfailing conviction ... These essays are a valuable criticism of life by a man who had a wide experience of life, a man of the world

The two fundamental problems of ethics by Arthur Schopenhauer ( )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Schopenhauer argues, in uniquely powerful prose, that self-consciousness gives the illusion of freedom and that human actions are determined, but that we rightly feel guilt because our actions issue from our essential individual character. He locates moral value in the virtues of loving kindness and voluntary justice that spring from the fundamental incentive of compassion. Morality's basis is ultimately metaphysical, resting on an intuitive identification of the self with all other striving and suffering beings. The Introduction by leading Schopenhauer scholar Christopher Janaway gives a clear summary of the argument of the essays in the context of Schopenhauer's life and works and the history of ethics in the modern period. --from publisher description
Philosophical writings by Arthur Schopenhauer ( )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As composer Richard Wagner noted, with Schopenhauer one may finally give voice to the secretly held belief that the world is bad. This blunt honesty was Schopenhauer's trademark. Perhaps no philosopher equaled him in relatinf metaphysical speculation to the seemingly random events of everyday life. This volume includes On Thinking for Oneself, On the Affirmation of the Will-to-Live, On Suicide, The World as Will: Second Aspect, On the Fundamental View of Idealism, On the Metaphysics of Music, The Foundation of Ethics, and other essential writings

Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit by Arthur Schopenhauer ( Book )
330 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lebenshilfe-Literatur hat heute Hochkonjunktur. Bevor diese Gattung zum seichten "Fühl-dich-wohl"-Geschwätz verkam, wandte man sich an die Philosophen. Schopenhauers Werk gliedert sich in drei grosse Kapitel: "was Einer ist, was Einer hat, was Einer vorstellt [gilt]". Der pessimistische, mitunter sarkastische Zug seines Denkens mutet dem Leser einiges zu, auch sein sprachlicher Stil fordert ganze Aufmerksamkeit. Doch wer sich auf die Lektüre einlässt, wird mit literarischem Genuss belohnt. Dieses Buch kann einen nicht kaltlassen: entweder wehrt man sich gegen Schopenhauers Weltsicht und schärft dadurch die eigene Anschauung. Oder man findet in ihm Erkenntnisse, die tatsächlich helfen, das Dasein auf Erden leichter zu meistern. - Ein Muss für alle Philosophie-Interessierten. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788- 1860) gilt als einer der wichtigsten deutschen Philosophen. Der bedeutende Schüler Kants prägte andere Philosophen, aber auch die frühe Psychologie und vor allem die Kunst: Wagner, Tucholsky, Hesse oder Mann schätzten Schopenhauers ganz eigenen Blick auf die Welt und den Menschen. Dr. Georg Schwikart, geb. 1964, Religionswissenschaftler und Theologe, lebt als Publizist und Schriftsteller in Sankt Augustin bei Bonn

On vision and colors by Arthur Schopenhauer ( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the first two decades of the nineteenth century, two of the most significant theoretical works on color since Leonardo da Vinci's Trattato della Pittura were written and published in Germany: Arthur Schopenhauer's On Vision and Colors and Philipp Otto Runge's Color Sphere. For Schopenhauer, vision is wholly subjective in nature and characterized by processes that cross over into the territory of philosophy. Runge's Color Sphere and essay "The Duality of Color" contained one of the first attempts to depict a comprehensive and harmonious color system in three dimensions. Runge intended his color sphere to be understood not as a product of art, but rather as a "mathematical figure of various philosophical reflections." By bringing these two visionary color theories together within a broad theoretical context--philosophy, art, architecture, and design--this volume uncovers their enduring influence on our own perception of color and the visual world around us
