The World as Will and Representation, Vol 1 by Arthur Schopenhauer

Into the Wild

Read The World as Will and Representation, Vol 1 Online Free - Arthur Schopenhauer's Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung is one of the most important philosophical works of the nineteenth century, the basic statement of one important stream of post-Kantian thought. It is without question Schopenhauer's greatest work. Conceived and published before the philosopher was 30 and expanded 25 years later, it is the summation of a lifetime of thought.
For 70 years, the only unabridged English translation of this work was the Haldane-Kemp collaboration. In 1958, a new translation by E. F. J. Payne appeared that decisively supplanted the older one. Payne's translation is superior because it corrects nearly 1,000 errors and omissions in the Haldane-Kemp translation, and it is based on the definitive 1937 German edition of Schopenhauer's work prepared by Dr. Arthur Hübscher. Payne's edition is the first to translate into English the text's many quotations in half a dozen languages. It is thus the most useful edition for the student or teacher.

Two years ago, while reading a philosophy textbook, I’ve learned that for German philosopher Gottfried Leibniz, our world is “the best of all possible worlds.” This is because God, who is good and omnipotent, chose to create our world of all the possible worlds. But contrary to that, the textbook...

طوال قراءتي لكتاب شوبنهاور هذا كانت تراود ذهني جملة مصطفى صادق الرافعي: إن دقة الفهم للحياة يفسدها وما يفعله شوبنهاور هو السعي إلى فهم الحياة و نقل هذا الفهم إلى البشرية، ولا يمكن لمن يقرأ كتابه الأشهر هذا إلا أن يشعر أنه أمام إنسان ذو بصيرة وعقل راجح، وبالرغم من وسمه بفيلسوف التشاؤم إلا أن قراءته...

بی نظیر ... بی نظیر و باز هم بی نظیر اگر از خوندن کلمات خسته کننده و غلمبه فلاسفه خسته شدید.. برای درک بهتر فلسفه و اخلاق، من شوپنهاور رو پیشنهاد میکنم. از دیدگاه من، شوپنهاور بزرگترین فیلسوفی بود که در حقش کم لطفی شد.شاید توجه زیادی به هگل یکی از دلایل باشه.. نمیدونم

It is fair to suggest that Schopenhauer recorded the first and still unsurpassed critigue of human nature. A hundred years ago, he was vastly influential. Joseph Conrad, Thomas Mann, Leo Tolstoy, Nietzsche and Freud had read him extensively. Today he is scarcely read because few modern thinkers r...

أنهيت بعد طول التأمل و الوقفات العديدة المجلد الأول من كتاب الفيلسوف الألماني الرائع آرتور شوبنهاور " العالم إرادةً و تمثلاً" و ينقسم الكتاب لمجلدين رئيسين ، يستعرض في المجلد الأول فكرة العالم تمثلاً ثم في الثاني العالم إرادة. في العالم تمثلاً ، يستهل شوبنهاور كتابه بالتنويه على ضرورة أن يلم القار...

Schopenhauer is my favorite German philosopher. German philosophers are known for being "difficult" to read. But that is not so with Schopenhauer. He is, at times, rather long winded. But we forgive him for that because his prose and his arguments are so beautiful. It has been awhile and I don't r...

أجد لذة في قراءة نصوص شوبنهاور ذات الطابع الفلسفي الأدبي ، وخلاصة محتوى هذا الكتاب في كون العالم تتمثل في ذات الإنسان ، الذات التى يتمثل لها العالم بدراية سابقة .

Schopenhauer rocks my world! This book blew me away. Its so good, I'm going to read it all again. Schopenhauer starts with Kantian notions of our limits of reason (that the in-itself of objects is unknown to us), mixes in some eastern philosophy, and finally tops it off with some platonic idealis...

Whenever you feel happy and think the world is all rainbows and unicorns, I suggest reading something from Arthur Schopenhauer to get a reality p*mp slap. While you are at it, I suggest doing it with a reader's guide.

“Truth is no harlot who throws her arms round the neck of him who does not desire her; on the contrary, she is so coy a beauty that even the man who sacrifices everything to her can still not be certain of her favours.” Tucked inside these wise, few lines is the sine qua non of any pursuit in this...
