Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was one of the greatest and most popular philosophers of the nineteenth century, and his fame has endured to this day. He believed that by looking inside ourselves, we could deserve the meaning of the universe, since it is, as we are, permeated and inspired by the basic life force he called Will. He believed that we are, as are all living things, constantly striving for fulfilment, which we can never attain. Schopenhauer was deeply influenced by Eastern philosophy and by mystical Neo-Platonism, but out of this raw material he produced something entirely original and profound. The World as Will and Representation is his masterpiece, the culmination of his life’s work. Its topics include the nature of the mind, free will, morality, aesthetics and the principles of art, sexuality, and animal rights. His ideas have inspired thinkers such as Nietzsche and Sartre, as well as artists such as Flaubert, Wagner, Mahler, Prokofiev and Thomas Mann.

“Arthur Schopenhauer was the most articulate and influential pessimist in the history of human thought.” Mark Stone, The Giants of Philosophy

“Apart from my slow progress with my music, my sole preoccupation now is with a man who-if only through his writings-has come to me in my loneliness like a gift from heaven. This is Arthur Schopenhauer, the greatest philosopher since Kant.” Richard Wagner, Letter to Franz Liszt (1854)

“His acquaintance with the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer was the great event in Wagner’s life.” Thomas Mann
