Arthur Schopenhauer: Parerga and Paralipomena: short philosophical essays, volume 1
This new translation presents the Schopenhauer’s collection of popular philosophical essays by Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860) in a readable and scholarly edition. This was the book that made Schopenhauer famous after long neglect. It addresses themes that complement his work The World as Will and Representation but is more popular in style. It includes his Aphorisms on the Wisdom of Life, reflections on fate and clairvoyance, trenchant views on the philosophers and universities of his day, and an enlightening survey of the history of philosophy. This edition contains a substantial introduction explaining the context of the essays, and is the first English edition to give extensive editorial notes on the different published versions of the work.

This new translation presents the Schopenhauer’s collection of popular philosophical essays by Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860) in a readable and scholarly edition.

It includes his Aphorisms on the Wisdom of Life, reflections on fate and clairvoyance, trenchant views on the philosophers and universities of his day, and an enlightening survey of the history of philosophy. This edition contains a substantial introduction explaining the context of the essays, and is the first English edition to give extensive editorial notes on the different published versions of the work.
