    About "Arthur Schopenhauer"

      • Arthur Schopenhauer

        Arthur Schopenhauer was a German philosopher best known for his work The World as Will and Representation Schopenhauer attempted to make his career as an academic by correcting and expanding Immanuel Kant s philosophy concerning the way in which we experience the world.


    1. Things Schopenhauer likes: music, suicide, tragic drama.Things Schopenhauer hates: toads, common sense, grand opera, religious dogmatics, action novels, women, published writers, the limitations to our understanding of the indestructibility of our essential being by death imposed on us by our narrow conception of time, spiders.Schopenhauer is to philosophy what "The Smiths" are to popular music - so unrelentingly miserable that you can't help but cheer up when they stop. I love it. How about thi [...]

    2. Me: Schopenhauer honey, I do think you are brilliant, but you need a hug and a little fun!Schopenhauer:

    3. there is no doubt in my mind that Arthur Schopenhauer is a genius, whatever that term may entitle this book alone he foreshadowed the theory of evolution, the discovery of the conscious and subconscious mind, and had extremely beautiful texts regarding 'The suffering of the world', 'The vanity of existence' and 'on suicide' he however had two Huge flaws that prevented me personally from enjoying his book fully:A) his extreme self righteous vanity B) his massive almost psychopathic misogyny a lot [...]

    4. Where he's good, Schopenhauer is very good (On the Suffering of the World, On Thinking for Yourself, On Philosophy and the Intellect), but where he's bad he's execrable (On Women).Dour and pessimistic, he's the Morrissey of philosophy. All is vanity, life is short and joy is fleeting. I have to wonder if today he would be diagnosed with clinical depression, rather than the romantic melancholia of genius. So, that said, I found much in common with him, in a mordantly humourous way, as I'm incline [...]

    5. I came across this book during a particularly bad spell of the black dog. I googled ‘suffering in the world why book’ and came across this and quotes related. I immediately ordered it off and thought it would be a soothing Buddhist style comfort imploring me to accept the influx of pain and suffering in reality. I was partially right. But also very wrong. Schopenhauer is quite a snobbish misanthrope, and I say this only in the confidence that I believe he would agree. His essay ‘On the In [...]

    6. This is very dark, and the harsh contrasts it draws between 'man' and 'brute' appear, at first, as much an indulgence of the human ego as a reflection on the human condition. Yet, Schopenhauer's essay twists and turns beautifully, working its way through a body of rhetoric (including the existential ideology of multiple creeds and cultures) to rest in the bowels of human suffering itself- effectively discrediting the assumption that our 'mortal coil' needn't be a state of suffering at all. The p [...]

    7. Pensaba que sería complicadisímo leer a Schopenhauer y sinceramente no lo fue tanto, tal vez porque éste libro es una especie de compilado de sus escritos, no sé que tan condensado lo hayan hecho ya que no había leído antes nada de él.El libro comenzó y sentía que lo amaba, para ser filosofía lo sentí sencillo, con palabras fáciles y eso se agradece, sin embargo, todo se derrumbó cuando llegué al apartado sobre La mujer,(Es la mujer un animal al que es necesario pegar, alimentar bi [...]

    8. Creo que con llegar a la parte de: "toda la conformación de la mujer indica que no ha sido hecha para los grandes trabajos de la inteligencia o el cuerpo" es suficiente para dejar de leer justificadamente.El pesimismo es llevado a otro nivel con este autor, ni siquiera se podría calificar como tal, sería más bien otra cosa. Masoquismo por un lado, regocije del sufrimiento y negación a su mismo tiempo. Incoherente e insoportable hasta decir basta. Creo que solo salvaría un par de frases del [...]

    9. Una montanya russa. A la primera part descriu viure al món com una roda de patiment, desil·lusió, atzar i error: "No hay nada fijo en la fugitiva vida, ni dolor infinito ni eterna alegría ni entusiasmo duradero ni resolución elevada que subsista. Todo se disuelve en el torrente de los años" Aquesta primera part es contraposa amb el punt culminant del libre: "sacrifici, ascetisme i alliberament" on defensa que només es pot sortir del patiment (el velo de Maia, la ilusión de la vida indivi [...]

    10. Well, the part about life and how miserable everyone was, slave to their wants and desires, made want to push Schopenhauer off a cliff and end his suffering (and mine). But, I must admit that it was challenging, although I didn't share some of his statements. Also, some of the comparisons he uses are almost poetic – I'm especially fond of the one comparing human's attitude towards life to a child trying to blow soap bubbles. And then the part about love, marriage and women was just unbearable. [...]

    11. I read this in the course of two or three subway trips. I felt in agreement with some things, especially in how much I agree that a better life is achieved by eschewing what hurts you; however the last two or three chapters are a textbook on male sexism of the early 19th century (which makes a lot of sense considering Schopenhauer's bio). I understant that zeitgeist must be taken under consideration when reading, but this was beyond what I could stand.

    12. 3.5 stars. Barring an obnoxious and sexist essay titled "On Women", this book is filled with wise adages and mini-ideas that can depress the reader on a happy day and give him company on a sad one. Schopenhauer is the quintessential pessimist- unintentionally funny, intentionally supercilious and in a different life would have possibly been less of a philosopher and more of a ruminating romantic. Apart from the central, melancholy inducing ideas, Schopenhauer discusses the detrimental effects of [...]

    13. Schopenhauer here discusses how happiness is not a state in its own right but rather a state made manifest by the absence of a different state: the state of suffering; in his terms, happiness or goodness has a 'negative' nature and suffering or evil has a 'positive' one.This is better understood in the sense that a shadow is not a thing in itself but rather a thing that is brought into being by the absence or impediment of a source of light. A shadow has a 'negative' nature; it exists only as a [...]

    14. This is a steaming pile of depressive dog shit. Schopey might have tried to transcend his own intellect, a tool he uses to see suffering and pointlessness in all things, but he seems to like being trapped.On page 10, it is as if he were making a contribution to Kafka's Penal Colony: " children can sometimes seem like innocent delinquints, sentenced not to death but to life, who have not yet discovered what their punishment will consist of." Followed shortly thereafter by suicidal thinking on the [...]

    15. Nog altijd moet gezegd worden dat de filosoof Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) geen populaire filosoof is. Dat is hij ook nooit geweest (en zal hij vermoedelijk ook nooit worden). Al bij leven voelde hij zich miskend, en in de bloemlezing die nu is herdrukt, komt dat onverbloemd tot uitdrukking. Veel zal gelegen zijn aan zijn misantrope levensbeschouwing, zijn klaagzangen en deprimerende ideeën. Ook dit boek staat er vol van. Toch laat deze bloemlezing ook zien dat Schopenhauer zeer literair beg [...]

    16. I knew nothing of Schopenhauer when I started reading this and was hoping for some interesting insights into his original thinking.But I found this collection of essays rather dull.Schopenhauer writes his expostulations in a series of numbered paragraphs. Presumably, he thought he was laying out a structured argument/justification/idea but often they just read as a collection a 'similar' thoughts. His persuasion also relies too much on analogies, which whilst good at providing guidance to his th [...]

    17. It is a nice little collection of essays by Schopenhauer. Especially the eponymous piece and the one on suicide are two that can be re-read every now and then. A great concern is obviously on the misogyny and the vanity of the man. The piece on women is rather despicable (even for someone like me who is personally not too worried about old men's sexism, but merely critical at an intellectual level). The one on thinking is problematic due to its highly dualistic nature that is marked by self-righ [...]

    18. The final essay in the collection was overall an interesting one on reading and writing. I would give it 4 stars in the end for the applicability it has to the modern world when it comes to writing good books and papers and about other things in the realms of reading.Overall though, there are ideas in here that are extremely outdated and then some that are of great interest. His ideas on suffering along with how knowledge emerges are some of the greatest things I will get out of this and will re [...]

    19. This is a collection of essays and the title is just that of the first essay. Some essays are great, others not so much, and few I didn't fully comprehend. My favorite essay was "On Thinking for Yourself"I may have misjudged this book; I'll re-read some other time and update if necessary. The essays in the book are:On the Suffering of the WorldOn the Vanity of ExistenceOn the Antithesis of Thing in Itself and AppearanceOn the Indestructibility of Our Essential Being by DeathOn SuicideOn Women (t [...]

    20. "The actual life of a thought lasts only until it reaches the point of speech; there it petrifies and is henceforth dead but indestructable, like the petrified plants and animals of prehistory. As soon as our thinking has found words it ceases to be sincere or at least serious. When it begins to exist for others it ceases to live in us, just as the child severs itself from it's mother when it enters into it's own existence"I enjoyed 'On the Suffering of the World' and 'On the Vanity of Existence [...]

    21. Leaving aside the appalling rubbish about women, which to be fair is probably based on the bigoted twaddle prevalent at the time, (no excuse!), this had several interesting ideas. On books and writing has some astute observations to make and the observations on aesthetics are resonant. Some of the social attitudes grate - low persons should be avoided as their company degrades! Social equality? Er, no. For a philosopher who advocates thinking for yourself (agree), he is remarkably dismissive of [...]

    22. Al principio pensaba en la suerte que había tenido por haber encontrado este libro. La lectura es profunda y sin embargo sencilla de digerir. Tristemente se me dobló su portada, y sentí tanto remordimiento, pero al llegar a los últimos 5 capítulos, terminé deseando que en lugar de doblar el libro, lo hubiera perdido, quemado o bañado en ácido. Su observación sobre la vida, la voluntad y los recursos negativos, son iluminadores, pero su opinión sobre el amor y el sexo femenino, son infi [...]

    23. Este vato es un genio en unas cosas, pero se pasa de verga en otras. Y no sólo me refiero a su misoginia, que a mi parecer se excusa por la circunstancias de su época, sino a un resto de observaciones que, creo yo, dejó a medias. Y digo que dejó a medias porque le quedó corta la vista; por ejemplo, cuando dice que al apaciguar todas las necesidades del hombre, queda la calma, y por ende el aburrimiento, lo que hace, hasta cierto punto, necesario sufrir para vivir, sólo demuestra que no lle [...]

    24. A tough pill to swallow, and sometimes one likely to produce drowsiness. Nevertheless, as much as I hate to admit it, I see a lot of this bitter misogynist in myself. While I think he tends to generalise more than would do him justice and can be overly verbose at times, his points are unapologetic, potent and cut-throat. An engaging read for the most part, tempered with a solemn, somewhat barren and humourless tone. Definitely not for everyone. Like a drunkard mumbling to himself in a corner, ap [...]

    25. Pesimista, pesimista, pesimista. Así el heredero filosófico de Kant plasma en estas hojas una perspectiva pragmática, elitista y prejuiciosa de la vida (Sin olvidar, también, misógina)."La mujer es un animal de cabellos largos y de ideas cortas."¿Eso les da, más o menos, una idea de lo que les espera?Pero, hey! no todo es malo y lleno de prejuicios, no hay que olvidar que es la idiosincrasia que predominó hace más de docientos años. Hoy por hoy, no es cien por ciento valido, ni cien po [...]

    26. Schopenhauer has some pretty great ideas although to me, he didn't express them very eloquently and clearly which made me re-read several passages. His first few essays were brilliant, although it was hard to take him seriously after his misogynistic essay On Women where he contradicts the philosophy he espouses in previous essays. (The need for objectivity, being aware of the phenomenal nature of the logical system etc) I was able to detach myself from that though and admit that his last essay [...]
