About the Book

"The World as Will and Idea, Vol 1" is a philosophical masterpiece written by Arthur Schopenhauer, a German philosopher of the 19th century. In this book, Schopenhauer presents his unique perspective on the nature of reality, human existence, and the meaning of life. The book is divided into four main parts, in which Schopenhauer delves deep into his philosophy. He argues that the world we experience is not just a physical reality but is also shaped by the human mind, which he calls the "will." The will, according to Schopenhauer, is the driving force of human existence, which constantly seeks satisfaction and fulfillment. The author's ideas have influenced many other philosophers, including Friedrich Nietzsche, and his work is still relevant today. "The World as Will and Idea, Vol 1" is a challenging but rewarding read for anyone interested in philosophy 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.
