The two fundamental problems of ethics by Arthur Schopenhauer( )

32 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and German and held by 2,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arthur Schopenhauer's The Two Fundamental Problems of Ethics (1841) consists of two groundbreaking essays : 'On the Freedom of the Will' and 'On the Basis of Morals'. The essays make original contributions to ethics and display Schopenhauer's erudition, prose-style and flair for philosophical controversy, as well as philosophical views that contrast sharply with the positions of both Kant and Nietzsche. Written accessibly, they do not presuppose the intricate metaphysics which Schopenhauer constructs elsewhere. This is the first English translation of these works to re-unite both essays in one volume. It offers a new translation by Christopher Janaway, together with an introduction, editorial notes on Schopenhauer's vocabulary and the different editions of his essays, a chronology of his life, a bibliography, and a glossary of names."--
On the basis of morality by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

187 editions published between 1840 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 1,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Persuasive and humane, this classic of philosophy represents one of the nineteenth century's most significant treatises on ethics. The Basis of Morality offers Schopenhauer's fullest examination of traditional ethical themes, and it articulates a descriptive form of ethics that contradicts the rationally based prescriptive theories.Starting with his polemic against Kant's ethics of duty, Schopenhauer anticipates the latter-day critics of moral philosophy. Arguing that compassion forms the basis of morality, he outlines a perspective on ethics in which passion and desire correspond to different

Essays of Schopenhauer by Arthur Schopenhauer( )

29 editions published between 1880 and 2020 in English and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays are a valuable criticism of life by a man who had a wide experience of life, a man of the world, who possessed an almost inspired faculty of observation. Schopenhauer, of all men, unmistakably observed life at first hand. There is no academic echo in his utterances; he is not one of a school; his voice has no formal intonation; it is deep, full-chested, and rings out its words with all the poignancy of individual emphasis, without bluster, but with unfailing conviction ... These essays are a valuable criticism of life by a man who had a wide experience of life, a man of the world

The art of literature by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

68 editions published between 1891 and 2019 in English and German and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great pessimist who believed in the best and expected the worst from writers here applies his caustic wit to literature and the literary scene. Schopenhauer's piercing analyses of style, critics, literary values, learning, and genius make this volume a handbook on writing? illuminated by the author's own shining, powerful style. The best way to discover the finest qualities of style and to form a theory of writing, he advises, is not to follow a trendy mannerism, but to study the ways in which great authors executed their best work. Schopenhauer provides excellent examples for aspiring writers in this collection of essays from his celebrated work Parerga. Translated by T. Bailey Saunders
Philosophical writings by Arthur Schopenhauer( )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) is to this day the most widely read philosopher in Germany. As the composer Richard Wagner also noted, with Schopenhauer one may finally give voice to the secretly held belief that the world is essentially bad. This blunt honesty is Schopenhauer's trademark. Perhaps no philosopher matches him in relating metaphysical speculation to the seemingly random events of everyday life. This volume includes Schopenhauer's most well-known and trenchant writings
On the fourfold root of the principle of sufficient reason by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

59 editions published between 1889 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A disciple of Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer took the Kantian concept that all knowledge derives from experience and broadened it to conclude that our experience of the world is necessarily subjective and influenced by our own intellect and biases, and that reality is but an extension of our own will. This is the basis of all of Schopenhauer's thinking, and here, he offers and essential foundation for understanding and appreciating all of his work. First produced as his doctoral dissertaion in 1813, these two essays -- "On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason" and "On the Will in Nature" -- were revised and published by the author in 1847; this 1889 edition represents its first translation into the English language. Students of philosophy and of 19th-century culture will find this a demanding but satisfying read -- Publisher's description
Parerga and Paralipomena : short philosophical essays by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

58 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the publication of the Parerga and Paralipomena in 1851, there finally came some measure of the fame that Schopenhauer thought was his due. Described by Schopenhauer himself as 'incomparably more popular than everything up till now', the Parerga is a miscellany of essays addressing themes that complement his work The World as Will and Representation, along with more divergent, speculative pieces. It includes his 'Aphorisms on the Wisdom of Life', reflections on fate and clairvoyance, trenchant views on the philosophers and universities of his day, and an enlightening survey of the history of philosophy."--Slipcover
Studies in pessimism; a series of essays by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

66 editions published between 1890 and 2014 in English and German and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the fourfold root of the principle of sufficient reason ; On vision and colours ; On will in nature by Arthur Schopenhauer( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of new translations unites three shorter works by Arthur Schopenhauer that expand on themes from his book The World as Will and Representation. In On the Fourfold Root he takes the principle of sufficient reason, which states that nothing is without a reason why it is, and shows how it covers different forms of explanation or ground that previous philosophers have tended to confuse. Schopenhauer regarded this study, which he first wrote as his doctoral dissertation, as an essential preliminary to The World as Will. On Will in Nature examines contemporary scientific findings in search of corroboration of his thesis that processes in nature are all a species of striving towards ends; and On Vision and Colours defends an anti-Newtonian account of colour perception influenced by Goethe's famous colour theory. This is the first English edition to provide extensive editorial notes on the different published versions of these works"--
