Counsels and Maxims From The Essays Of Arthur Schopenhauer
If my object in these pages were to present a complete scheme of counsels and maxims for the guidance of life, I should have to repeat the numerous rules-some of them excellent-which have been drawn up by thinkers of all ages, from Theognis and Solomon down to La Rochefoucauld; and, in so doing, I should inevitably entail upon the reader a vast amount of well-worn commonplace. But the fact is that in this work I make still less claim to exhaust my subject than in any other of my writings. An author who makes no claims to completeness must also, in a great measure, abandon any attempt at systematic arrangement.
For his double loss in this respect, the reader may console himself by reflecting that a complete and systematic treatment of such a subject as the guidance of life could hardly fail to be a very wearisome business.
I have simply put down those of my thoughts which appear to be worth communicating-thoughts which, as far as I know, have not been uttered, or, at any rate, not just in the same form, by any one else; so that my remarks may be taken as a supplement to what has been already achieved in the immense field. However, by way of introducing some sort of order into the great variety of matters upon which advice will be given in the following pages, I shall distribute what I have to say under the following heads: 1 general rules; 2 our relation to ourselves; 3 our relation to others; and finally, 4 rules which concern our manner of life and our worldly circumstances.
I shall conclude with some remarks on the changes which the various periods of life produce in us. Product Details. Average Review. Write a Review. Related Searches.

About This Item
According to Schopenhauer, in order for one to contemplate an explanation for a particular thing, one must assume that there is a subject oneself that thinks about the object thing to be explained. Schopenhauer built his thesis on the work of Kant, who noted that humans cannot transcend themselves and therefore cannot satisfactorily answer metaphysical questions, and G. Leibniz, who first defined the principle of sufficient reason, which states that absolutely nothing exists that lacks an adequate reason for its existence.
ningradeni.ga Schopenhauer''s most famous work, the two-volume The World as Will and Representation, sprung from ideas put forth in The Fourfold Root. Schopenhauer''s philosophical inquiries led him to embrace a pessimistic worldview--life is a meaningless struggle against the irrational impulses of the will.
