Publisher's Summary

In this final part to Schopenhauer's momentous and hugely influential work, his original and wide-ranging observations are as lively as ever. Though cast as a 'pessimist' by history, he is anything but that to read - and listen to. Here are the last supplementary comments his original work (published 1818), the fruit of decades of further reflection. These essays - some fairly substantial - include 'On Instinct and Mechanical Tendency', 'On Genius', 'On Madness', 'The Inner Nature of Art', 'The Metaphysics of Music', 'The Metaphysics of Love of the Sexes', and 'The Way of Salvation'. This translation by Haldane and Kemp omitted - for reasons of 'modesty' - a fascinating essay 'On Pederasty'. This has now been translated and read by Leighton Pugh and included here, offering a truly complete recording of Schopenhauer's opus magnus. And once again it is clear why Schopenhauer influenced a wide range of philosophers, writers and artists over the succeeding generations, including Nietzsche, Thomas Mann, Samuel Beckett and many others.
