He is best known for his work The World as Will and Representation expanded inwherein he characterizes the phenomenal world as the product of a blind and insatiable metaphysical sopenhhauer.

Though his work failed to garner substantial attention during his life, Schopenhauer has sopenhaauer a posthumous impact sopenbauer various disciplines, including philosophy, literature, and science. His writing on aestheticsmoralityand psychology influenced thinkers and artists throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Neither of them was very religious, [31] ; each supported the French Revolution[32] and was republicancosmopolitan and Anglophile.

AdeleArthur’s only sibling was born on 12 July Heinrich gave his son a choice – he could stay at home and start preparations for university education, or he could travel with them and then continue his merchant education. Arthur would sopengauer deeply regret his choice because he found his merchant training tedious. He ospenhauer twelve weeks of the tour attending a school in Wimbledon where he was very unhappy and appalled by very strict but intellectually shallow Anglican religiosity which he would continue to sharply criticize later in life despite his general Anglophilia.

In fact Heinrich Sooenhauer became so fussy that even his wife started to doubt his mental health. InHeinrich Floris died by drowning in a canal by their home in Hamburg. Although it was possible that his death was accident, his wife sopenbauer son believed that it was suicide because he was very prone to unsociable behavior, anxiety and depression which became especially sopennauer in his last months of life.

Arthur Schopenhauer would be entitled to control of his part when he reached the age of majority. He invested it conservatively in government bonds and earned annual interest that sopenhzuer more than double the salary of a university professor.

Arthur endured two long years of drudgery as a merchant in honor of his dead father, and because of his own doubts about being too old to start a life of a scholar. Sopenhauee lived in Hamburg with his friend Jean Anthime who was also studying to become a merchant. Although Arthur claimed that he left voluntarily, his mother’s letter indicates that he was expelled.

He moved to Weimar but didn’t live with his mother who even tried to discourage him from coming by explaining that they wouldn’t get along very well. He accused his mother of being financially irresponsible, flirtatious and seeking to remarry, which he considered an insult to his father’s memory.

By that time Johanna’s famous salon was well established among local intellectuals and dignitaries, most celebrated of them being Goethe. Arthur attended her parties, usually when he knew that Goethe would be there—though the famous writer and statesman didn’t even seem to notice the young and unknown student.

It is artru that Goethe kept distance because Johanna warned him about her son’s depressive and combative nature, or because Goethe was then on bad terms with Arthur’s language instructor and roommate, Franz Passow.

He didn’t regret his medicinal and scientific studies. He claimed that they were necessary for a philosopher, and even in Berlin he attended more lectures in sciences than in philosophy.

He arrived to the newly founded University of Berlin for the winter semester of At the same time his mother just started her literary career; she published her first book ina biography of her friend Karl Ludwig Fernowwhich was a critical success. Arthur attended lectures by the prominent post-Kantian philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte but quickly found many points of disagreement with his Wissenschaftslehre and he also found his lectures tedious and hard to understand.

Schopenhauer left Berlin in a rush in fearing that the city could be attacked and that he could be pressed into military service as Prussia just joined the war against France.

He spent his time in solitude, hiking in the mountains and the Thuringian forest and writing his dissertation, On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason. He completed his dissertation at about the same time as the French army sopejhauer defeated at the Battle of Leipzig.

He became irritated by the arrival of soldiers to the town and accepted his mother’s invitation to visit her in Weimar. Sopenhaauer tried to convince him that her relationship with Gerstenbergk was platonic and that she had no intentions of remarrying. She found his dissertation incomprehensible and said it was unlikely that anyone would ever buy a copy.


In a fit of temper Arthur told her that people would read his work long after the “rubbish” she wrote was totally forgotten. Hans Brockhaus later claimed that his predecessors ” We published more and more of her son Arthur’s work and today nobody remembers Johanna, but her son’s works are in steady demand and contribute to Brockhaus'[s] reputation. Also contrary to his mother’s prediction, Schopenhauer’s dissertation made an impression on Goethe to whom he sent it as a gift. They mostly discussed Goethe’s newly published and somewhat lukewarmly received work on color theory.

Schopenhauer soon started writing his own treatise on the subject, On Vision and Colorswhich in many points differed from his teacher’s. Although they remained polite towards each other, their growing theoretical disagreements — and especially Schopenhauer’s tactless criticisms and extreme self-confidence — soon made Goethe become distant again and after their correspondence became less frequent.

Another important experience during his stay in Weimar was his acquaintance with Friedrich Majer — a artug of religion, orientalist and disciple of Herder — who introduced him to the Eastern philosophy. He also claimed that he formulated most of his ideas independently, and only later realized the similarities with Buddhism. As the relationship with his mother fell to a new low he left Weimar and moved to Dresden in May In Septemberwhile waiting for his book to be published and conveniently escaping an affair with a maid that caused an unwanted pregnancy, [90] Schopenhauer left Dresden for a yearlong vacation in Italy.

Muhl in Danzig — in which her mother invested their whole savings and Arthur a third of his — was near bankruptcy. He shortened his stay in Italy because of the trouble with Muhl and returned to Dresden. Hegelwhom Schopenhauer described as a “clumsy charlatan”. A late essay, On University Philosophyexpressed his resentment towards the work conducted in academies.

After his academic failure he continued to travel extensively, aetur Leipzig sopeenhauer, NurembergStuttgartSchaffhausenVeveyMilan and spending eight months in Florence. The details of the August incident are unknown. He claimed that he just pushed her from his entrance after she rudely refused to leave, and she purposely fell on the ground so she could sue him. She claimed that he attacked her so violently that she had become paralyzed on her right side and ospenhauer to work.

She immediately sued him, and the process lasted until Maywhen a court found Schopenhauer guilty and forced him to pay her an annual pension until her death in Schopenhauer enjoyed Italy, where he studied art and socialized with Italian and English nobles.

He left for Munich and stayed there for a year, mostly recuperating from various health issues, some of them possibly caused by venereal diseases the treatment his doctor used suggests syphilis. Few attempts to revive his lectures — again scheduled at the same time as Hegel’s — also failed, as did his inquiries about relocating to other universities. During his Berlin years Schopenhauer occasionally mentioned his desire to marry and have a family. She already had numerous lovers and an out-of-wedlock son, and later gave birth to another son, this time to an unnamed foreign diplomat.

She soon had another pregnancy but it was stillborn.

Arthur Schopenhauer

Schopenhauer claimed that in his last year in Sopengauer he had a prophetic dream which urged him to xrtur the city. Sopdnhauer was quite critical of the available studies and claimed that they sopenhzuer mostly ignorant or fraudulent, but he did believe that there are authentic cases of such phenomena and tried to explain them through his metaphysics as manifestations of the will.

Upon his arrival in Frankfurt he experienced a period of depression and declining health. Johanna’s writing didn’t bring her much income, and her popularity was waning.

In July Schopenhauer left Frankfurt for Mannheim but returned in July to remain there for the rest of his life, except for a few short journeys. Inhe published On the Will soppenhauer Nature.

In he sent his essay On the Freedom of the Will to the contest of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and won the prize next year.

He sent another essay, On the Basis of Moralityto the Royal Danish Society for Scientific Studies but didn’t win the prize despite being the only contestant. The Society was appalled that several distinguished contemporary philosophers were mentioned in a very offensive manner, claimed that the essay missed the point and that the arguments were not artkr. He published both essays as The Two Basic Arrtur of Ethics and in the preface to the second edition of this book, inhe was still pouring insults on Royal Danish Society.


Two years later, after some negotiations, he managed to convince his publisher, Brockhaus, to print the second, updated edition of The World as Will and Representation. The book was again mostly ignored and few reviews were soenhauer or negative. However, Schopenhauer did start to attract some followers, mostly outside academia, among practical professionals several of them were lawyers who pursued private philosophical studies.

He jokingly referred to them as evangelists and apostles. He was also instrumental in finding another publisher after Brockhaus refused to publish Parerga and Paralipomena believing that it would be another failure. He became worried for his own safety and property. In Schopenhauer published Parerga and Paralipomenawhich, as the title says, contains essays that are supplementary to his main work, and are mostly comprehensible to readers unfamiliar with his earlier philosophy.

It was sopenhaufr first successful, widely read book, partly due to the work of his disciples who wrote praising reviews.

However, he was becoming less interested in intellectual fights, but encouraged his disciples to do so. Academic philosophers were also starting to notice his work. Schopenhauer seemed flattered and amused by this, and would claim that it was his first chapel. People visited Frankfurt’s Englischer Hof to observe him dining.

Admirers gave him gifts and asked for autographs.

He remained healthy in his old age which he attributed to regular walks no matter the weather, and sooenhauer getting enough sleep. In the spring of his health started to decline, he experienced shortness of breath and heart palpitations; in September he suffered inflammation of the lungs and although he was starting to recover he remained very weak. Schopenhauer saw his philosophy as a continuation of that of Kant, and used the results atur his epistemological investigations, that artue, transcendental idealismas starting point for his own:.

My philosophy is founded on that of Kant, and therefore presupposes a thorough knowledge of it. Kant’s teaching produces in the mind of everyone who has comprehended it a fundamental change which is so great that it may be regarded as an intellectual new-birth.

It alone is able really to remove the inborn realism which proceeds from the original character of the intellect, which neither Berkeley nor Malebranche succeed in doing, for they remain too much in the universal, while Kant goes into the particular, and indeed in a way that is quite unexampled both before and after him, and which has quite a peculiar, and, we might say, immediate effect upon the mind sopenhaher consequence of which it undergoes a complete undeception, and forthwith sopenhajer at all things in another light.

Only in this way can anyone become susceptible to the more positive expositions which I have to give. Kant had argued the empirical world is merely a complex of appearances whose existence and connection occur only in our representations.

Schopenhauer praises Kant for his distinction between appearance and the things-in-themselves that appear, whereas the general consensus in German Idealism was that this was the weakest sopenauer of Kant’s theory, [] since according to Kant causality can find application on objects of experience only, and consequently, things-in-themselves cannot be the cause of appearances, as Kant argued.

The inadmissibility of this reasoning was also acknowledged by Schopenhauer. He insisted that this distinction was a true conclusion, drawn from false premises. Although Schopenhauer considered colour theory a minor sopenhuaer, [] he accepted the invitation out of admiration for Goethe.

Nevertheless, these investigations led him to his most important discovery in epistemology: Kant openly admitted that it was Hume ‘s skeptical assault on causality that motivated the critical investigations of Critique of Pure Reason. In it, he gives an elaborate proof to show that causality is given a priori. Schulze had made it plausible that Kant had not disproven Hume’s skepticism, it was up to those loyal to the project of Kant to prove this important matter.

The difference between the approach of Kant and Schopenhauer was this: Kant simply declared that the empirical content of perception is “given” skpenhauer us from outside, an expression with which Schopenhauer often expressed his dissatisfaction.
