On the basis of morality by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
177 editions published between 1840 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,586 libraries worldwide
Persuasive and humane, this classic of philosophy represents one of the nineteenth century's most significant treatises on ethics. The Basis of Morality offers Schopenhauer's fullest examination of traditional ethical themes, and it articulates a descriptive form of ethics that contradicts the rationally based prescriptive theories. Starting with his polemic against Kant's ethics of duty, Schopenhauer anticipates the latter-day critics of moral philosophy. Arguing that compassion forms the basis of morality, he outlines a perspective on ethics in which passion and desire correspond to different moral characters, behaviors, and worldviews. In conclusion, Schopenhauer defines his metaphysics of morals, employing Kant's transcendental idealism to illustrate both the interconnectiveness of being and the affinity of his ethics to Eastern thought

Parerga and Paralipomena : short philosophical essays by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
42 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in English and held by 748 libraries worldwide
"With the publication of the Parerga and Paralipomena in 1851, there finally came some measure of the fame that Schopenhauer thought was his due. Described by Schopenhauer himself as 'incomparably more popular than everything up till now', the Parerga is a miscellany of essays addressing themes that complement his work The World as Will and Representation, along with more divergent, speculative pieces. It includes his 'Aphorisms on the Wisdom of Life', reflections on fate and clairvoyance, trenchant views on the philosophers and universities of his day, and an enlightening survey of the history of philosophy."--Slipcover

The art of literature by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
30 editions published between 1891 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 681 libraries worldwide
The great pessimist who believed in the best and expected the worst from writers here applies his caustic wit to literature and the literary scene. Schopenhauer's piercing analyses of style, critics, literary values, learning, and genius make this volume a handbook on writing ? illuminated by the author's own shining, powerful style. The best way to discover the finest qualities of style and to form a theory of writing, he advises, is not to follow a trendy mannerism, but to study the ways in which great authors executed their best work. Schopenhauer provides excellent examples for aspiring writers in this collection of essays from his celebrated work Parerga. Translated by T. Bailey Saunders

On vision and colors by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
30 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 500 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
Counsels and maxims, being the second part of Arthur Schopenhauer's Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
60 editions published between 1890 and 2012 in English and German and held by 433 libraries worldwide
So if you have to live amongst men, you must allow everyone the right to exist in accordance with the character he has, whatever it turns out to be: and all you should strive to do is to make use of this character in such a way as its kind and nature permit, rather than to hope for any alteration in it, or to condemn it off-hand for what it is. This is the true sense of the maxim--Live and let live. That, however, is a task which is difficult in proportion as it is right; and he is a happy man who can once for all avoid having to do with a great many of his fellow creatures.>
Philosophical writings by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 353 libraries worldwide
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) is to this day the most widely read philosopher in Germany. As the composer Richard Wagner also noted, with Schopenhauer one may finally give voice to the secretly held belief that the world is essentially bad. This blunt honesty is Schopenhauer's trademark. Perhaps no philosopher matches him in relating metaphysical speculation to the seemingly random events of everyday life. This volume includes Schopenhauer's most well-known and trenchant writings
The two fundamental problems of ethics by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
26 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and German and held by 320 libraries worldwide
"Arthur Schopenhauer's The Two Fundamental Problems of Ethics (1841) consists of two groundbreaking essays: 'On the Freedom of the Will' and 'On the Basis of Morals'. The essays make original contributions to ethics and display Schopenhauer's erudition, prose-style and flair for philosophical controversy, as well as philosophical views that contrast sharply with the positions of both Kant and Nietzsche. Written accessibly, they do not presuppose the intricate metaphysics which Schopenhauer constructs elsewhere. This is the first English translation of these works to re-unite both essays in one volume. It offers a new translation by Christopher Janaway, together with an introduction, editorial notes on Schopenhauer's vocabulary and the different editions of his essays, a chronology of his life, a bibliography, and a glossary of names."--Jacket

Essays of Schopenhauer by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )
25 editions published between 1880 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 51 libraries worldwide
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

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Understanding Schopenhauer through the prism of Indian culture : philosophy, religion and Sanskrit literature ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Arthur Schopenhauer was the first Western thinker who incorporated thoughts of the Upanishads in his own philosophy. With the increasing interest in Schopenhauer serious work on the relationship between him and Indian philosophy becomes necessary. This book answers to this necessity, not only providing English-speaking scholarship with new insightsinto the connection between Schopenhauer and Indian systems of thought but also addressing the reasons why this relationship has recently been facing increased interest in both countries, Germany and India
