    Schopenhauer was just 30 when his magnum opus, Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung, a work of considerable learning and innovation of thought, first appeared in 1818.

    Much to his chagrin and puzzlement (so convinced was he of its merits), it didn't have an immediate effect on European philosophy, views and culture. It was only decades later that it was recognised as one of the major intellectual landmarks of the 19th century.

    Without a doubt, Schopenhauer is one of the giants of Western philosophy. He represents a turning point from the quest to define the external world as something apart from our experience to a recognition of our experience as the medium of our world. Philosophy is a discourse, a conversation spread out over centuries that explores and develops different lines of thought.

    "L'art d'avoir toujours raison" est un petit traité pratique et humoristique de mauvaise foi : de façon à la fois sarcastique et pragmatique, Schopenhauer y expose une série de stratagèmes permettant de l'emporter lors de controverses, indépendamment de la vérité du point de vue que l'on soutient.

    'The two foes of human happiness are pain and boredom.' Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was one of the most influential philosophers of the 19th century because his humanistic, atheistic, if pessimistic views chimed with a new secularism that was emerging from a Western society dominated by religion. Despite his rather forbidding image (and a few outdated views), he is one of the most approachable German philosophers, and this is certainly evident in these two key works, The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims.

    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.

    Written by Arthur Schopenhauer, The Wisdom of Life is an essay from Schopenhauer's last work, Parerga and Paralipomena. Schopenhauer's essay is a detailed description on exploring what human behavior is and what it should be. Schopenhauer also argues the “art” of obtaining the greatest possible pleasure and success in life through the theory of eudaemonology. He takes a unique approach on many important philosophical questions, including whether human life corresponds, or could possibly correspond, to the conception of existence itself.

    Philosophe allemand, Arthur Schopenhauer expose sa philosophie, très tôt élaborée, dans son ouvrage majeur "Le Monde comme volonté et comme représentation" (1819) où il énonce que : "La volonté singulière d'un individu n'a qu'une existence illusoire, elle est de toutes parts immergée dans le jeu infini et absurde d'une réalité qui la dépasse et finit par la détruire".

    The great figures of modern philosophy led generations to struggle with the most crucial of questions and break through a new understanding of conscience and existence. Nietzsche's work is radical, sometimes violent, often ironic; it fascinates anyone bold enough to delve into it, exerted a profound influence on modern intellectual history, and covers a wide range of subjects. Immanuel Kant is one of the most important figures of German philosophy, said to have affected a Copernican revolution in philosophy.

    Unless suffering is the direct and immediate object of life, our existence must entirely fail of its aim. It is absurd to look upon the enormous amount of pain that abounds everywhere in the world, and originates in needs and necessities inseparable from life itself as serving no purpose at all and the result of mere chance.

    Sorprende que a 140 años de la muerte de Schopenhauer aún existan textos inéditos de su obra. El amor es un sentimiento humano que puede crecer hasta opacar cualquier aspiración, determinación o certeza del individuo e incluso llevarlo a sacrificar su vida, y sin embargo, en palabras de Arthur Schopenhauer, había sido "totalmente ignorado por los filósofos" hasta que éste lo interpretó metafísica y trascendentemente.

    Mit den Mädchen hat es die Natur auf Das, was man im dramaturgischen Sinne, einen Knalleffekt nennt, abgesehen, indem sie dieselben, auf wenige Jahre, mit überreichlicher Schönheit, Reiz und Fülle ausstattet, auf Kosten ihrer ganzen übrigen Lebenszeit, damit sie nämlich, während jener Jahre, der Phantasie eines Mannes sich in dem Maße bemächtigen könnten, dass er hingerissen wird, die Sorge für sie auf Zeit Lebens, in irgend einer Form, ehrlich zu übernehmen; zu welchem Schritte ihn zu vermögen, die bloße vernünftige Überlegung keine hinlänglich sichere Bürgschaft zu geben schien.

    L'idéalisme est un courant philosophique majeur, qui prit racine avec Platon et s'épanouit dans la philosophie allemande autour de Kant et Schopenhauer. Le monde dans lequel nous vivons est fait de l'ensemble de nos représentations, qui ne peuvent se constituer ailleurs que dans notre esprit même ; le reconnaître, c'est quitter une conception naïve de la réalité et atteindre une compréhension lucide de ce qu'il y a de plus fondamental dans notre expérience.

    Mitleid ist nach Schopenhauer das Fundament der Menschenliebe, der Gerechtigkeit und der Ethik. Es schließt die Liebe zu den Tieren ein und ist die natürliche, uneingennützige und allein wirklich moralische Triebfeder ethischen Handelns. Es ist damit die Basis einer jeden Tugend.
