About the Book

The ''Studies In Pessimis'' is written by Arthur Schopenhauer. The Essays that are being provided here are an additional selection from Schopenhauer's Parerga that have been gathered under a title that is not present in the original. The first essay is primarily a translation of the philosopher's observations found in the section titled Night Reflections on the Lesson of the Death of the World, as well as excerpts from another portion titled Night Reflections on the Lesson of the Bejahung and Verneinung of the Will to Life. Such omissions as the author have made are primarily motivated by the wish to avoid restating arguments that readers of the other volumes in this series are already familiar with. The Dialogue on Immortality summarizes ideas that were extensively discussed in the philosopher's major book and again in the Parerga. The chapter of the original with the same title as this and the preceding volume is almost finished with the psychological observations. The essay about women shouldn't be read as a joke. It conveys Schopenhauer's strong opinions, and as a perceptive observer of humanity's flaws, he should be given a chance to speak on a topic that is currently generating a lot of discussion among us.

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.
