    About "Arthur Schopenhauer E.F.J. Payne"

      • Arthur Schopenhauer E.F.J. Payne

        Arthur Schopenhauer was a German philosopher best known for his work The World as Will and Representation Schopenhauer attempted to make his career as an academic by correcting and expanding Immanuel Kant s philosophy concerning the way in which we experience the world.


    1. Two years ago, while reading a philosophy textbook, I’ve learned that for German philosopher Gottfried Leibniz, our world is “the best of all possible worlds.” This is because God, who is good and omnipotent, chose to create our world of all the possible worlds. But contrary to that, the textbook pointed out, another German philosopher will say one hundred years later that our world is instead “the worst of all possible worlds.” I found that funny then, being young and innocent, and so [...]

    2. طوال قراءتي لكتاب شوبنهاور هذا كانت تراود ذهني جملة مصطفى صادق الرافعي: إن دقة الفهم للحياة يفسدهاوما يفعله شوبنهاور هو السعي إلى فهم الحياة و نقل هذا الفهم إلى البشرية، ولا يمكن لمن يقرأ كتابه الأشهر هذا إلا أن يشعر أنه أمام إنسان ذو بصيرة وعقل راجح، وبالرغم من وسمه بفيلسوف [...]

    3. بی نظیر بی نظیر و باز هم بی نظیراگر از خوندن کلمات خسته کننده و غلمبه فلاسفه خسته شدید برای درک بهتر فلسفه و اخلاق، من شوپنهاور رو پیشنهاد میکنم. از دیدگاه من، شوپنهاور بزرگترین فیلسوفی بود که در حقش کم لطفی شد.شاید توجه زیادی به هگل یکی از دلایل باشه نمیدونم

    4. أنهيت بعد طول التأمل و الوقفات العديدة المجلد الأول من كتاب الفيلسوف الألماني الرائع آرتور شوبنهاور " العالم إرادةً و تمثلاً" و ينقسم الكتاب لمجلدين رئيسين ، يستعرض في المجلد الأول فكرة العالم تمثلاً ثم في الثاني العالم إرادة.في العالم تمثلاً ، يستهل شوبنهاور كتابه بالتنويه [...]

    5. It is fair to suggest that Schopenhauer recorded the first and still unsurpassed critigue of human nature. A hundred years ago, he was vastly influential. Joseph Conrad, Thomas Mann, Leo Tolstoy, Nietzsche and Freud had read him extensively. Today he is scarcely read because few modern thinkers realize the importance of his recorded thoughts. Schopenhauer maintained that we humans are at one with other animals in our inner-most essence. Some of us may think that we are separated as distinct indi [...]

    6. Schopenhauer is my favorite German philosopher. German philosophers are known for being "difficult" to read. But that is not so with Schopenhauer. He is, at times, rather long winded. But we forgive him for that because his prose and his arguments are so beautiful.It has been awhile and I don't remember all of the details. I just remember really liking it, I wonder if it how it would hold up if I read it again.

    7. تلخ مثل شوپنهاورکتاب اول جهان چون تصور و اراده از چهار دفتر تشکیل شده که دفتر چهارمش خیلی خوب بود (در دفتر چهار شوپنهاور مثل رندی که دنیا را سال ها دریده است سخن می گوید از نقاب رنگارنگ دنیا پرده بر میدارد) این دفتر دیدگاه حکیمانه ی نویسنده به زندگی رو نشون میده ولی سه دفتر اول ک [...]

    8. أجد لذة في قراءة نصوص شوبنهاور ذات الطابع الفلسفي الأدبي ، وخلاصة محتوى هذا الكتاب في كون العالم تتمثل في ذات الإنسان ، الذات التى يتمثل لها العالم بدراية سابقة .

    9. Schopenhauer rocks my world! This book blew me away. Its so good, I'm going to read it all again. Schopenhauer starts with Kantian notions of our limits of reason (that the in-itself of objects is unknown to us), mixes in some eastern philosophy, and finally tops it off with some platonic idealism. Unlike Kant, Schopenhauer thinks we have access to the "in-itself" of the world. This in-itself is the will, the blind striving behind everything.The best parts of this volume, however, are when he co [...]

    10. Whenever you feel happy and think the world is all rainbows and unicorns, I suggest reading something from Arthur Schopenhauer to get a reality p*mp slap. While you are at it, I suggest doing it with a reader's guide.

    11. “Truth is no harlot who throws her arms round the neck of him who does not desire her; on the contrary, she is so coy a beauty that even the man who sacrifices everything to her can still not be certain of her favours.”Tucked inside these wise, few lines is the sine qua non of any pursuit in this world: The necessity of absolute devotion; and the humility that even such allegiance does not entitle one to any recompense whatsoever. History shows that even the most powerful minds are undermine [...]

    12. gutenberg/ebooks/38427Translated From The German By R. B. Haldane, M.A. and J. Kemp, M.A.Opening:“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. It then becomes clear and certain to him that what he knows is not a sun and an earth, but only an eye that sees a sun, a hand that feels an earth; that the world w [...]

    13. a book to be digested. in the preface the author "boasts" that he couldn't convey his solitary idea in fewer words. i was forever looking for a superfluous word or sentence while reading the book to point out . could find none so far. the style is beautiful and majestic. he is a seer. for example he repudiates the concept of an "ether" almost a century before it was actually disproved by the michelson-morley experiment. he also tells of the impossibility of a "theory of everything" to which we s [...]

    14. To begin, I’ve never been a big fan of Kant. The way in which he subordinates thought to universals and imperatives has always come off as repugnant to me. Nevertheless his fundamental of the phenomenal and noumenal have struck me as just right. I could never really reconcile my aversion to him though. Schopenhauer’s critique of Kant, for this reason, I found as liberating. Schopenhauer does away with all that which I had found objectionable in such an elegant and compelling manner, his accu [...]

    15. Schopenhauer is probably the best writers of German romanticism and post Kantian philosophy. Even in translation into English the text is not at all hard to follow unlike say Hegel or even Kant himself. He takes the idea of Kant's that we are not directly in touch with reality out there (the thing in itself) but the representations of itself. Schopenhauer calls this thing in itself of reality (Kant's Nuomena) the will and all of its many forms represented in our minds (Kant's Phenomena) as the w [...]

    16. Schopenhauer is wrong when he says this is a difficult book, that it needs to be read twice, or it's necessary to have had read Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason" in order to follow his arguments. The author writes such that if you don't understand what he's saying just wait awhile and he'll explain it to you later on in another section of the Volume. When I read books like this, I long for today's writers to be as entertaining, informative, and as challenging to my current beliefs as this book is [...]

    17. Schopenauer kind of epitomizes my favorite kind of philospher, the guy who does what he does more out of a desire to know and understand than for anything else. Sure he's a crotchety old bastard who insults people he doesn't agree with, and his hero-worship of Kant is only acceptable because of the way he later flays the shit out of Kant's categories, but underneath everything like that there really seems to be an honest will to understand existence. There are some problems, I thought, such as s [...]

    18. i'm interested in schopenhauer.i don't buy everything (that would be scary) but i like itrry i'm so inarticulate

    19. The thesis of Schopenhauer's doctoral dissertation concerned the four aspects, discovered by him, of which only two are very certain, the physical and the moral, of the principle of sufficient reason - nihil est sine ratione cur potius sit quam non sit. The general nature of this principle, and indeed its fundamental quality for all thought, renders it easy to misinterpret, so that grounds and consequences have been almost constantly confused in the history of philosophy with causes and effects, [...]

    20. One thing that stands to Schopenhauer's credit is that he writes wonderfully for a philosopher, it seeming to be creed within that profession to convey all ideas, no matter how simple or complex, in space gibberish. Arthur even defines his terms for you. Which of course doesn't mean that everything here is crystal clear - excepting the ad hominem attacks on his contemporaries and the typical 19th century nastiness of then-unexceptional bigotry - but at least it makes it easier to follow the line [...]

    21. As the young philosopher below concisely put it, you can think of Schop’s will as Kant’s noumena and his representation as Kant’s phenomena. Will and representation has analogues in Plato as well, the former being what is, the latter being what we see. So Schop places himself in the long line of canonical metaphysicians. As usual with philosophy, it’s okay if you miss one of his points because he’ll repeat the exact same idea at least fifteen more times (along with prolix, meandering e [...]

    22. الجزء المتعلق بالارادة هو المثير في فلسفة شوبنهاور ، فهو أولا لا يشير بالارادة للمفهوم العمومي لها، الارادة التي تكلم عنها شوبنهاور هي المرتبطة بجميع أنواع الكائنات في الحياة أي الاندفاع غير العاقل و الأعمى نحو الحياة والتدافع نحو الوجود و "الابقاء على النوع" كما يتجلي ذلك [...]

    23. I read the first three sections right as spring started. By the time I finished the fourth--it snowed again. The book is laid out like this--what one person called a symphony with four movements. At first, it was difficult to take him seriously. I figured his character was too impatient to give a full picture of Kant so lazily was content to reduce the 12 categories down to the principle of sufficient reason. I was ready to cast him aside to a dusty corner on my bookshelf as a poor interpreter o [...]

    24. This is one of the greatest books of I've read, if not the greatest. I loved every second spent on its each and every page. It's eloquently written, it's accessible but needs effort (a background and familiarity with Kant's theories, especially to delve into the appendix in which Schopenhauer presents his detailed criticisms against Kant). Reading Schopenhauer is like listening to the wisest person in history. But that is not surely refreshing. In line with his theory, he does not present rules, [...]

    25. Very tedious at the beginning (but I suppose that's simply the nature of philosophy)-- it took me five minutes to read each page-- but it gets much more interesting in the third and fourth parts, especially the fourth part. Like anything written this long ago, some of it is mental masturbation. However, it is still an interesting read and Schopenhauer's thoughts on death were fascinating. Some parts of this book foreshadow evolutionary psychology and Schopenhauer lived before Darwin! I didn't re [...]

    26. I read a few Schopenhauer essays and aphorisms in college. I remember vaguely admiring them.The World as Will and Representation is a different beast. A behemoth it took me two weeks to fight my way through, through his (inconsistent but interesting) epistemology, his (nowadays silly-seeming, but still interesting as a historical note) metaphysics, his (ever so romantic, but sadly dated) aesthetics, and his (little bitch) ethics. A challenging philosopher, a necessary bridge to Nietzsche, Heideg [...]

    27. هنا فيلسوف محترف يكتب بشكل منهجيهناك بعض النقاط تحتاج لمزيد من الوضوحلم اجد للتشاؤم اثر بينبانتظار الحصول على الجزء الثاني حتى تتضح الصورةايضا لفتني انه لم يتطرق كثيرا لديكارت،رغم انه انطلق من نفس المنطقحتى انه تحدث عن مالبرانش اكثر

    28. This is a very short impression of a work that is quite detailed.It extends mostly on the philosophical theories of Kant and Plato and at the same time resonates well with the eastern philosophies in explaining how the world as idea is created in the mind of the subject.The book is easy to read and assimilate compared to the works of other philosophers I have read.Book one establishes the world as Idea quoting the Indian and Buddhist philosophies,Spinoza,Plato and Kant all the way.While he build [...]

    29. After reading Kant and being impressed by his whole new philosophical system, there were some questions left open. I found Kant's system impressive, but it sounds just too convenient to postulate an extra - unknowable - world in which to place all the difficult philosophical issues (freedom, souls, god, etc.). I read somewhere that Schopenhauer tried to improve Kant's system and that he created - in general - a more consistent and honest philosophical world system. I had read some loose material [...]

    30. This book is fascinating. It is like watching a train wreck that never ends. Leave it to a man with an ego as large as the great outdoors to write a book about The Will being the fundamental object in creation.In the process of developing his view he began by telling the reader not to bother reading his book if the reader is not prepared to read both volumes twice, along with his doctoral thesis, and the works of Kant and of Plato. That was the minimum reading list. He would also like for the re [...]
