Riassunto: Arthur Schopenhauer is a widely read, admired and intriguing philosopher whose ideas have had a profound impact on some of the greatest minds of the last two centuries. He is known for his powerful but simple prose-style and a philosophy that tackles everyday life. Yet even the most sympathetic and intelligent reader of his works is likely to be perplexed by seeming inconsistencies and unconventional tone of a number of his major claims.
Schopenhauer: A Guide for the Perplexed is a clear and thorough account of Schopenhauer's philosophy, his major works and ideas, providing an ideal guide to the important and complex thought of this key philosopher. The book explores arguments that he offers for his pessimistic worldview that have long been misunderstood. Geared towards the specific requirements of students who need to reach a sound understanding of Schopenhauer contributions to philosophy, this book also presents an in-depth analysis of his western as well as his hitherto neglected eastern sources and influences.
L'autore: R. Raj Singh is Professor of Philosophy at Brock University, Canada. His previous publications include Death, Contemplation and Schopenhauer (Ashgate, 2007) and Bhakti and Philosophy (Rowman and Littlefield, 2006).
