Essays of Schopenhauer
by Arthur Schopenhauer
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2004
Arthur Schopenhauer was a German philosopher known for his atheistic pessimism and philosophical clarity. His analysis of will led him to the conclusion that emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled. Consequently, he favored a lifestyle of negating human desires, similar to the teachings of Buddhism and Vedanta. Schopenhauer's metaphysical analysis of will, his views on human motivation and desire, and his aphoristic writing style influenced many well-known thinkers.
