Öncelikle itiraf etmem gerekir ki bir kitabı 3 ayda okuyarak kendi çapımda rekor kırdım! ancak bunun nedeni birtakım fiziki olumsuzluklardı. bir de kitap başta felsefesini ortaya koymak adına uzuun tanimlar içeriyordu; zorlandım. Ancak 3. bölüm ile birlikte kara göründü! inanılmaz heyecan verici tespitler, yorumlar, çıkarsamalar, göndermeler... bazılarını okurken heyecandan ayaklarım yerden kesildi. kesinlikle mükemmel! birçok düşünürün, düşüncenin zengin madenlerine inmek gibiydi. Inanılmaz bir ...more

From p. 62 of my edition: "every one who does not wish to remain uncultured, and ot be numbered with the ignorant and incompetent multitude, must study speculative philosophy." Well, I know what group I want to be in! This is my second time reading this massive, ambiotious & important work. The author recommends reading it twice, but maybe not tw decadeds between readings. Well, I hoppe to read it one more before I die and maybe that'll be OK. Preferably preceeded by some serious Kant. This ...more

Having completed a thesis about Kant's influence on C.G. Jung in seminary, I wanted to proceed to an exhaustive study of the philsophical underpinnings of the psychiatrist's work. I'd read all of Jung and all of Kant and Nietzsche cited or owned by Jung. The third major influence was Schopenhauer, about whom I knew little except the fact that to Germans of Jung's generation, Schopenhauer was read like Nietzsche is today. The place to start, obviously, was his magnum opus, The World as Will and R ...more

Shelves: philosophie
On trouve ici une philosophie qui se tisse en entrecroisant les fil des traditions indienne et occidentale pour nous enjoindre à dire un grand NON à la Volonté qui s’impose à nous. Schopenhauer assume d’ailleurs pleinement, sans pudeur, le fait d’être un réactionnaire radical et il en ressort plusieurs idées générales qui entraînent à la pensée, mais sans que l’émotion réactive dont elles sont issues soit médiatisée par la réflexion.
Aussi le voit-on souvent grogner, déverser sa haine de Hegel, c

Данные избранные работы Артура Шопенгауэра оставили разные впечатления.

Что касается общего вывода - понравилась форма подачи материала и то каким образом автор умело и легко обобщает довольно сложно объяснимые вещи.

Должен сказать, что мне крайне трудно согласиться с философом не только со многими его выводами, но и с самими рассуждениями. По поводу приводимых аргументов, то с ними было ещё трудней согласиться. Самое удивительное это-то, что часто даже когда не согласен с аргументами автора я тем

Jacques le fataliste et son maître
Un testo di filosofia che si legge tutto d’un fiato. Ti fa sentire intelligente (un po’ come i romanzi e i racconti di Th. Mann – che ammirava Schopenhauer e ha inserito la sua opera nei Buddenbrook). Non è poco. Consigliato attorno ai diciotto anni, credo.
Ho letto che la filosofia di Schopenhauer sarebbe come un albergo di lusso, dotato di tutti i comfort e gli svaghi, costruito sull’orlo di un abisso. Che altro si può desiderare?
Frederick
Typical nearly indecipherable German philosopher. There were a couple of things in this volume I found interesting like his statement that suffering is essential to life and that there is no knowledge without a knower present. In other places it almost seems as if he is saying that there is no reality apart from some person perceiving it. This seems to reflect the ancient humanistic ideal that man is the measure of all things.

Henüz istemeyle dolu olanların tümü için, istemenin toptan askıya alınmasından sonra geriye kalan, yokluktur. Ama tersine, istemenin ters çevrildiği, kendini yadsıdığı kişide, bu bizim dünyamız, gerçek olarak, bütün güneşleri, galaksileriyle yokluktur.

istemek, çok istemek, çok fazla istemek ve beraberinde yeni yine yeniden tasarlanan dünya...

Schopenhauer, Buddha'nın four noble truth/4 soylu gerçeğine modern bir cila çekmiş. İsteğin gerçekleşip gerçekleşmediğine aldırmaksızın,beş duyunun topladığı veriyle bıkmadan usanmadan yaşama katılmanın yolunu yeni filizlenmiş istekler üzerinden meşrulaştıran bizler ne çok yorgunuz. Bu ne sefalet aman yarabbi. İçi dolmayan bir boşluk bu. Ancak Jung'un önsözüne istinaden, Arthur babanın bu büyük acı zincir

Letto per l'Università.

Prima metà dell'800. La cultura tedesca vive i suoi anni migliori, sotto la spinta del romanticismo e dell'idealismo. Hegel insegna all'Università: le sue sono le lezioni più seguite. Tutti sono convinti che non ci sarà più bisogno di altri filosofi in futuro, perché Hegel ha già detto tutto.
Poi improvvisamente arriva un certo Arthur Schopenhauer che, dal suo piccolo, afferma con tranquillità e leggerezza che Hegel non ha capito assolutamente niente. E scrive un libro (un

a remarkable kantian criticism, influencing directly on nietzsche's philosophical growth and his conception of the will to power, even on freud's topology of the being. it is, despite its idealist premises borrowed from eastern philosophy at times, a beautiful resketch of western metaphysics
Aaron Crofut
Ontology just isn't my thing. A lot of unnecessary verbiage, the bane of many otherwise good or great books. The idea of will being a factor different from physical laws is very important but not unique to Schopenhauer.

I'm content to take existence of myself and other things for granted.

I like his ideas but think they could be a bit more rosy... Why must pessimism and cynicism rule the world?
