Arthur Schopenhauer (22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860) was a German philosopher. He is best known for his 1818 work The World as Will and Representation, in which he argues that the phenomenal world is driven by a metaphysical will that perpetually and malignantly seeks satiation. He also wrote influentially on aesthetics, ethics, and religion.Transcendental idealism formed the basis for much of his thought, and his atheistic philosophy has been described as an exemplary manifestation of philosophical pessimism. Finding his philosophical conclusions to be compatible with those of much Eastern philosophy, his solutions to the problems of existence and suffering were consequently similar to those of Vedantic and Buddhist thinkers. Schopenhauer's influence has proven profound across various disciplines; those who have cited his influence include Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner, Leo Tolstoy, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Erwin Schrödinger, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Otto Rank, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Thomas Mann, and Jorge Luis Borges, among others.

The Essays of Arthur Schopenhauer The Art of Controversy

This early work by Arthur Schopenhauer was originally published in 1830 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. The contents of 'The Essays of Arthur Schopenhauer; The Art of Controversy,' are drawn entirely from his posthumous papers, edited and translated by T. Bailey Saunders. Arthur Schopenhauer was born on 22 February 1788, in Gdańsk, a Polish city on the Baltic coast. His parents were both descendants of wealthy German Patrician families, and moved to Hamburg shortly after the Prussians annexed Gdańsk in 1793. Schopenhauer enrolled at the University of Göttingen in 1809 and it was here that he first studied metaphysics and psychology, under the well respected and polemical anti-Kantian philosopher, Gottlob Ernst Schulze. Schopenhauer began his most famous work, Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung (‘The World as Will and Representation’) in 1814, and published it five years later. This text has become a centre-piece of modern philosophy, in which the author argues that the world is driven by a continually dissatisfied ‘will’, one which is continually seeking satisfaction. It includes aspects of epistemology, ontology, aesthetics, ethics and a strong criticism of the Kantian approach to knowledge.
