About the Book

"The Essays of Arthur Schopenhauer: On Human Nature" is a collection of philosophical essays written by German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. The book contains a series of essays on various aspects of human nature, including love, sex, and morality. Schopenhauer's philosophy is heavily influenced by Eastern thought, particularly Buddhism, and he believes that the fundamental nature of existence is suffering. In the essays on love and sex, Schopenhauer provides a critical analysis of romantic relationships and argues that they are often driven by self-interest and the desire for personal gratification. He also presents a bleak view of human morality, suggesting that most people are motivated by egoism and self-preservation rather than a genuine concern for others. Overall, "The Essays of Arthur Schopenhauer: On Human Nature" provides a challenging and thought-provoking critique of human nature, encouraging readers to question their own assumptions about the nature of existence and the human condition.

About Author

Arthur Schopenhauer

German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer was born in 1788 and died on September 21, 1860. Although Schopenhauer's work received little attention while he was alive, it had an influence on several fields after his death, including science, literature, and philosophy. Numerous writers and artists have been impacted by his writing on psychology, ethics, and aesthetics. At the age of 88, Arthur Schopenhauer passed away in Paris in 1848. He was born in Danzig, Germany, in 1788 on Heilig Geist Gasse. He was the son of Heinrich Floris Schopenhauer (1747–1805) and Johanna Schopenhauer (née Trosiener; 1766–1838), who were both descended from affluent German–Dutch aristocratic families. Arthur was brought to Le Havre in 1797 to live with Grégoire de Blésimaire's family, a business acquaintance of his father's. In 1811–1812, Schopenhauer studied philosophy at the recently established University of Berlin. Schopenhauer periodically mentioned his wish to get married and start a family when he was living in Berlin. He had an on-and-off relationship with Caroline Richter, who had had numerous lovers and a son out of wedlock. After arriving in Frankfurt, he went through a depressive episode and his health deteriorated. He passed away at home, seated on his sofa, on September 21, 1860, from pulmonary-respiratory failure. He passed away at the age of 72, and a Lutheran preacher officiated at his funeral.
