The Cambridge Companion to Schopenhauer, Paperback

The Cambridge Companion to Schopenhauer Paperback

Edited by Christopher Janaway

Part of the Cambridge Companions to Philosophy series



Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) is something of a maverick figure in the history of philosophy.

He produced a unique theory of the world and human existence based upon his notion of will.

This collection analyses the related but distinct components of will from the point of view of epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, aesthetics, ethics, and the philosophy of psychoanalysis.

This volume explores Schopenhauer's philosophy of death, his relationship to the philosophy of Kant, his use of ideas drawn from both Buddhism and Hinduism, and the important influence he exerted on Nietzsche, Freud, and Wittgenstein.
