About the Book

Essays of renowned philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer are included in this book. The word "Arthur Schopenhauer" is all that is written on the stone marking his tomb in Frankfort, without even the year of his birth or death. When asked where he wanted to be buried, Schopenhauer said, "Anywhere; they will find me. The pessimist Schopenhauer had a sufficiently upbeat conviction that people would eventually pay attention to his message. This conviction never failed him throughout a lifetime of disappointments and neglect in places where he might have most valued appreciation; it only began to show some signs of being justified a few years before his passing.This unanimity does not exist with regard to his philosophical views; he is one of the philosophers who is most frequently misunderstood. He has already been thoroughly explained and criticized, and this will undoubtedly happen again. In practically all of the subsequent articles, but especially in the "Metaphysics of Love," to which the reader may be referred, is evident what the tendency of his underlying philosophical premise was, his metaphysical explanation of the universe.

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 Heiligegeistgasse. 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.
