One of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century Schopenhauer believed that human action is determined not by reason but by will the blind and irrational desire for physical existence This selection of his writings on religion ethics politics women and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer s last work i Parerga and Paralipomena i which he published in He depicts humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil each individual absolutely free within a Godless world in which art morality and self awareness are our only salvation This innovative and pessimistic view proved powerfully influential upon philosophy and art affecting the work of Nietzsche and Wittgenstein among others, Nineteenth century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer championed individual strength of will and independent reasoned deliberation above the irrational impulses that animated most of society In The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims two essays from his last work Parerga und Paralipomena he discusses how to order our lives to obtain the greatest amount of pleasure and success then he offers guidelines for living life to its fullest But for Schopenhauer a life well lived should always reach beyond itself to a higher plane, Which are the logical tricks that will let you slip through the net when faced with awkward questions How can you yourself use arguments to deflect difficult situations Do you recognize all flaws in someone else s argument This the book the BBC Andrew Gilligan Lord Hutton Tony Blair and Alistair Campbell will not be able to ignore This is an irresistible guide to clear thinking and understanding of the art of debate, Schopenhauer s perception of the importance of art morality and self awareness in a blind struggle against a Godless meaningless world radically transformed our understanding of the individual and remains a searing vision of the human condition
