The Idea Independent Of The Principle Of Sufficient Reason: The Platonic Idea: The Object Of Art. . Where a choice has had to be made, the alternative of a somewhat slavish adherence to Schopenhauer's ipsissima verba has accordingly been preferred to that of inaccuracy. The result is a piece of work which leaves much to be desired, but which has yet consistently sought to reproduce faithfully the spirit as well as the letter of the original.

In this work, Schopenhauer explains his fundamental idea that at the root of the reality we see around us is a Will that eternally, insatiably seeks to be satisfied

In this work, Schopenhauer explains his fundamental idea that at the root of the reality we see around us is a Will that eternally, insatiably seeks to be satisfied. Each human Subject observes the Objects around her from the perspective of that fundamental Will working within each person. Art has the power to make us see the Thing-In-Itself, the Platonic Idea freed from the individual particular manifestation of it, thus enabling us to transcend the individual Will and perceive something of true Reality.

The world is my idea: And so with these words Schopenhauer begins his magnum opus with one of the most provocative opening .

The world is my idea: And so with these words Schopenhauer begins his magnum opus with one of the most provocative opening lines in all of literature. You’ll notice other Schopenhauer books titled, The World as Will and Representation, and The World as Will and Presentation, and perhaps wonder whether he is making some rather fine distinction each by writing an entire separate book. Worry not (Or should I say, ‘worry’?); these are merely translations of the same.

The knowledge wBicli that one man in one lifetime drew directly from life and the world, won and presented to others as won and arranged, cannot yet at once become the possession of mankind for mankind has not so much power to receive as the genius has power to give.

The knowledge wBicli that one man in one lifetime drew directly from life and the world, won and presented to others as won and arranged, cannot yet at once become the possession of mankind for mankind has not so much power to receive as the genius has power to give.

Schopenhauer, Arthur, 1788-1860.

1. The world is my idea: – this is a truth which holds good for everything that lives and knows, though man alone can bring it into reflective . In this first book, then, we consider the world only from this side, only so far as it is idea. The world is my idea: – this is a truth which holds good for everything that lives and knows, though man alone can bring it into reflective and abstract consciousness. If he really does this, he has attained to philosophical wisdom. The inward reluctance with which any one accepts the world as merely his idea, warns him that this view of it, however true it may be, is nevertheless one-sided, adopted in consequence of some arbitrary abstraction. And yet it is a conception from which he can never free himself.

Arthur Schopenhauer, (born February 22, 1788, Danzig, Prussia -died September 21, 1860, Frankfurt am Main ), German philosopher, often called the philosopher of pessimism, who was primarily important as the exponent of a metaphysical doctrine of the will in immediate reaction against Hegelian idealism. His writings influenced later existential philosophy and Freudian psychology. Schopenhauer was the son of a wealthy merchant, Heinrich Floris Schopenhauer, and his wife, Johanna, who later became famous for her novels, essays, and travelogues.

The World as Will and Representation (WWR; German: Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung, WWV) is the central work of the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.

Posted on November 23, 2013March 22, 2018. In this two part series we will examine the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. In this lecture we will look at his metaphysics, or his claim that the ‘world is will’, while in the second lecture we will investigate Schopenhauer’s ethics. While Schopenhauer agreed with the fundamental tenets of Kant’s ideas, he also believed that there was a major inconsistency which lay at the heart of his philosophy.

THE world is my idea' is a truth valid for every living creature, though only man can consciously contemplate it. In doing so he attains philosophical wisdom. No truth is more absolutely certain than that all that exists for knowledge, and, therefore, this whole world, is only object in relation to subject, perception of a perceiver-in a word, idea.

This vintage book contains the first volume of Arthur Schopenhauer’s 1818 treatise, "The World As Will And Idea". One of the most influential philosophical works of the nineteenth century, it is Schopenhauer’s greatest endeavour, and constitutes the summation of a lifetime of contemplation. In it, he postulates that our existence is fuelled by an unsatisfied will, perpetually searching for satisfaction. This fascinating book is highly recommended for students of psychology, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860) was a seminal German philosopher. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
