Arthur Schopenhauer traveled in childhood throughout Europe and lived for a time in Goethe's Weimar, where his mother had established a salon that attracted many of Europe's leading intellectuals. As a young man, Schopenhauer studied at the University of Gottingen and in Berlin, where he attended the lectures of Fichte and Schleiermacher. Schopenhauer's first work was The Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason , followed by a treatise on the physiology of perception, On Vision and Colors When Schopenhauer wrote his principal work, The World as Will and Idea , he was confident that it was a work of great importance that would soon win him fame, but in this he was badly disappointed. In he arranged to hold a series of philosophical lectures at the same time as those of the newly arrived professor Hegel, whom Schopenhauer despised calling him, among other creative epithets, an "intellectual Caliban".

In the darkest hours of my darkest nights, I know that I have Schopenhauer. Kitap adindan da anlasilacagi uzere zaten eklerden ve unutulmus notlardan mutesekkil.
Ama bir kitaptaki notlar olarak dusunmeyin, daha cok bir ustunden gecme. Isteme ve Tasarim olarak Dunya'yi okumamislar icin pek bir anlama gelmeyecektir. Kitap, Fichte, Schelling ve ozellikle de Hegel'e karsi buyuk bir nefret iceriyor. Onlar disinda, postmodern bir pop-felsefe tarihi yaziminin butun ana hatlari cok ilginc bir sekilde bu kitapta var. Sanki herkes Schopenhauer'a burun kivirirken, tum tarih yazimi Kitap adindan da anlasilacagi uzere zaten eklerden ve unutulmus notlardan mutesekkil.
Sanki herkes Schopenhauer'a burun kivirirken, tum tarih yazimini adama yaptirmislar gibi. Bu kitapta neleri goruyoruz? Geri kalanlar siyah ve gri defterde. Nov 17, Andrea G. Schopenhauer concibe la idea de felicidad como una meta inalcanzable para los seres humanos.
La idea del autor es proponer un camino intermedio entre el estoicismo y el maquiavelismo. Sep 01, Louis rated it it was amazing.
Surely one of the very best books I have ever heard, it is definitely in my top 3 or 4 ever along with the Letters by Seneca and the Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Nothing else comes close. Some people found the section on duelling 'boring', but I think it's more relevant than ever.
Substitute 'dueling' with 'conflict' of any kind, and now you have total relevance. The section called 'Counsels And Maxims' is an absolute gem. I review it every few months. Apr 06, L Daniel rated it it was amazing. Classic, this isn't self evident for being not known to people.
Dec 12, Andrew Hunt rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy. It's like getting to read The World as Will and Representation for the first time all over again, complete with fresh new ideas. Its sole flaw is Schopenhauer's tendency to beat a dead horse at times, especially when he discusses the virtues of solitude.
The essay on spirit seeing made me revise my views of Schopenhauer's philosophy. Apr 07, Stas Sajin rated it it was amazing. Schopenhauer would be an unknown entity for us if not for this book. According to Irvin Yalom, Parega is the masterpiece that got him noticed, and I can see why. He wrote most parts of it as a personal epistle to the reader about how one should live his life.

Parerga and Paralipomena: Volume One
Parerga and Paralipomena Greek for "Appendices" and "Omissions", respectively; German : Parerga und Paralipomena is a collection of philosophical reflections by Arthur Schopenhauer published in The collection is divided into two volumes, covering first the parerga and thereafter the paralipomena to that philosophy. The parerga are six extended essays intended as supplementary to the author's thought. The paralipomena , short ruminations divided by topic into thirty-one subheadings, cover material hitherto unaddressed by the philosopher but deemed by him to be complementary to the parerga. In light of the unenthusiastic reception of the philosopher's earlier publications, publishers were reluctant to commit to this, his last major work.
