Item description for El arte de tratar a las mujeres (Pensamiento) by Arthur Schopenhauer...
Though the relationship between philosophers and women has historically been a conflicted one, the appearance of talented women in the arts and in philosophy during the last few years has, to a large extent, debunked the prejudice of philosophy as an exclusively masculine domain. Nevertheless, Arthur Schopenhauer vehemently opposed the shift towards gender equality within philosophical writing and thought, and the result of his resistance is presented in this poignant treatise on the passion and vision he finds within philosophy alongside descriptions of his tumultuous relationships with women.
Aunque la relacin entre el filsofo y las mujeres ha sido histricamente conflictiva, el surgimiento de grandes figuras femeninas en las artes y el pensamiento a lo largo de los ltimos aos ha logrado, en mayor parte, desdibujar el prejuicio de la filosofa como un campo exclusivamente masculino. Pero Arthur Schopenhauer, gracias a la amarga experiencia sufrida en casa de su madre, se opus con luminosa intuicin a este cambio a una mayor igualdad entre los sexos. El resultado, un libro mordaz y cido, se adentra en las pasiones y la visin del prestigioso filsofo junto con sus propias relaciones con las mujeres.

More About Arthur Schopenhauer
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was a German philosopher known for his atheistic pessimism and philosophical clarity. At age 25, he published his doctoral dissertation, On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason, which examined the fundamental question of whether reason alone can unlock answers about the world. Schopenhauer's most influential work, The World as Will and Representation, emphasized the role of man's basic motivation, which Schopenhauer called will. His analysis of will led him to the conclusion that emotional, physical, and sexual desires can never be fulfilled. Consequently, he favored a lifestyle of negating human desires, similar to the teachings of ancient Greek Stoic philosophers, Buddhism, and Vedanta. Schopenhauer's metaphysical analysis of will, his views on human motivation and desire, and his aphoristic writing style influenced many well-known thinkers including Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Erwin Schrodinger, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Otto Rank, Carl Gustav Jung, and Jorge Luis Borges."
