    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.

    '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 Despite his rather forbidding image (and a few outdated views), he is one of the most approachable German philosophers, and this is certainly evident in these two key works, The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and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.

    There is a cause, or a reason, behind everything that happens. This is the fundamental view behind the classical proposition the Principle of Sufficient Reason, which, in 1813, Schopenhauer chose as his subject for further examination in his doctoral dissertation On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason....

    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.

    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.

    Schopenhauer: here's when great philosophy can be somber, pessimistic, even brutal, and still resonate with a sarcastic laugh. He was among the first to contend that the universe is essentially not a rational place; in his most famous work, "The World as Will and Representation", he argues that the individuals of a species do not have as much free will as is ordinarily thought, as the only Will that matters is that of the species, which is to reproduce and carry on. Schopenhauer is very well-known for his radical stance on women, aesthetics, and rhetoric; he is the author of "The Art of Being Right", a playful manual designed to utterly crush one's opponent in verbal battle, and of the "Metaphysics of the Love of the Sexes", a hilarious application of the theories developed in the "World as Will and Representation".

    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.

    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".

    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.

    Idealism is the part of philosophy that focuses on the mind and its creations, which implies the problematic notion that everything we ever experience can only be shaped by our senses and the way our mind functions. It has its roots in German philosophy, of which Immanuel Kant is one of the most important figures. He is said to have affected a Copernican revolution in philosophy, akin to Copernicus' reversal of the age-old belief that the sun revolved around the earth.

    "A l'origine du débat, les deux parties, le plus souvent, croient avoir la vérité pour elles, et à mesure qu'il se développe, l'une et l'autre commence à en douter : car c'est seulement la fin qui doit trancher de la vérité, la confirmer. Donc, la dialectique n'a pas à s'engager dans cette direction, pas plus que le maître d'armes ne se demande qui, en fait, a raison dans la querelle dont est issu le duel ; bien placer sa pointe, bien parer les bottes, c'est de cela qu'il s'agit ; ainsi en est-il de la dialectique : c'est une escrime intellectuelle."

    "À essayer de voir une intention du destin dans les choses, on ne fait qu'user, au contraire, de ce miroir conique qui introduit la combinaison et l'ordre dans ce qui semblait comme jeté au hasard." Arthur Schopenhauer interroge ici la notion de providence et propose une réflexion sur la maîtrise de notre destinée.
