More About Arthur Schopenhauer

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Arthur Schopenauer was born in Danzig in 1788, where his family, of Dutch origin, owned one of the most respected trading houses. In 1793 the business moved to Hamburg, and in 1805 Arthur, who was expected to inherit it, was apprenticed as a clerk to another Hamburg house. He hated the work, so in 1807, two years after his father's suicide and the sale of the business, he enrolled at the grammar school at Gotha. In 1809 he entered Gottingen University to study medicine and science; the following year he took up philosophy. In 1811 he transferred to Berlin to write his doctoral thesis (1813). During the next four years he lived in Dresden and wrote The World as Will and Idea (1818), a complete exposition of his philosophy. Although the book failed to sell, Schopenhauer's belief in his own philosophy sustained him through twenty-five years of frustrated desire for fame. During his middle life, he traveled widely in Europe. In 1844 he brought out a greatly expanded edition of his book, which after his death became one of the most widely read of all philosophical works. His fame was established in 1851 with the publication of Parerga and Paralipomena, a large collection of essays, dialogues and aphorisms. From 1833 until his death from a heart attack in 1860 he lived in Frankfurt-am-Main.
R. J. Hollingdale has translated eleven of Nietzsche's books and published two books about him. He has also translated works by, among others, Schopenhauer, Goethe, E. T. A. Hoffmann, Lichtenberg and Theodor Fontane, many of these for the Penguin Classics. He is Honorary President of the British Nietzsche Society, and was for the Australian academic year 1991 Visiting Fellow at Trinity College, Melbourne.

Reviews - What do customers think about El amor, las mujeres, y la muerte?

Buena exposición a modo de aforismos del pensamiento de este filósofo   May 15, 2007
Hace al menos 20 años que no he vuelto a leer esta singular obra.

Ciertamente que la visión de la mujer de Schopenhauer no va a ser la más popular de todas las épocas, pero si lo vemos desde el punto de vista que las mujeres son agentes de la "Voluntad de Destino" de una forma mucho más activa, entonces entenderemos su pensamineto..

El amor es sólo un juego cruel del destino por lograr la perpetuación de la especie... la crueldad está dada en nuestra naturaleza pensante, que no es lo suficinetemente fuerte como para luchar con esta... si fuesemos ominpresentes observadores de la tieera y la huisémos visto en cualquier época antes de la aparición de los humanos, entonces viéramos las fuerzas de la vida instintiva llevar a cabo su programada función.. la tragicomedia de los humanos es que pudiendo observar y reflexionar, a la vez no pueden escapar..

un curioso dato, Schopenhauer señala que las primeras observaciones físicas que poseemos se basan en la estructura esquelética, y que los tamaños extremos (pequeños y altos) tienden a neutralizarse...uhmm, mejor ver si si es comprobable estadísticamente.
