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 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.
