The Philosophy of Disenchantment

The Philosophy of Disenchantment
by Edgar Saltus

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company 1887
ISBN/ASIN: 1143249585
Number of pages: 270

This book is a refreshing, unique look at the nature of life, told from a Schopenhauerian perspective. Saltus, having drawn from sources as diverse as Voltaire and the Bible, makes the point that this is far from being the 'best of all possible worlds.' Rather, life is, in Saltus' estimation, a grievous burden to be borne.
