Interessante estratto da Parerga et Paralipomena, (1851) dedicato a scrittura, scrittori, letteratura, editoria e non solo. Il testo, in sé, è datato; ha anche il limite di dedicarsi, per una buona metà, a un'analisi linguistica del tedesco, troppo specifica per chiunque non conosca la lingua. Ma è davvero interessante laddove tratteggia i "costumi editoriali" di un'epoca lontana, e attualissimo quando analizza l'etica della scrittura e della composizione. Il quadro umano che se ne ricava non è...more

I came upon Schopenhauer unexpectedly. I had heard of him before in passing, probably mentioned in connection with pessimism or in a laundry list of German philosophers. While reading Doubt: A History I came upon this:
"Schopenhauer did not believe in God, but he did not believe in science either. To him, trying to learn about reality by figuring out the laws of nature (as they appear to us) is doomed. Yet he believed there was a worthy pursuit of truth, through art."
And that is the moment I de...more

Schopenhauer escreveu neste livro críticas ácidas a diversos pseudo-escritores e formas erradas de se escrever livros.

Todavia, ironicamente, o livro cuja premissa era discorrer acerca da "arte de escrever" torna-se muitas vezes prolixo e repetitivo, além de certas vezes bairrista e ultrapassado(pois destina-se, em muito, a criticar escritos e revistas alemãs da sua época).

Não concordo também com certa ideia de que o autor tenta passar certas vezes de que o excesso de leitura poderia "emburrecer"...more

In this short compendium Schopenhauer, among other things, heavily criticizes obscurity in writing. A thing so common in philosophy and in soft sciences in general.

He claims that a man who have gained full knowledge on the subject would find no difficulties in communicating it as simple and clear as possible, and only when the subject is partially understood that one needs to fill the gaps with a rhetoric shroud that renders it impenetrable and foggy as a way to hide his own ignorance. He links...more

É tão prepotente, preconceituoso e sarcástico que não merece um comentário mais elaborado.
Alex Milledge
I liked when Schopenhauer said that bad taste is a sign of a dull or confused mind. I agree because when people have bad taste in clothes, its because they do not know what is good and try to wear eclectically many things which are considered cool in order to make them look fashionable. I believe taste should be very refined and simple, and not overdone to the point of looking or being very tacky.

Mooi uitgegeven klein boekje waarin de beroemde filosoof zijn gal spuit over uitgevers- en schrijversland. Er blijkt in een kleine 2 eeuwen maar bedroevend weinig veranderd: ook toen al was gewin het belangrijkste motief van de uitgever, ook toen al was de waan van de dag het belangrijkste motief van de lezer.
Lekker om zoveel boosheid zo mooi verwoord te zien.

The first two essays (on authorship, on style) are pretty good. The rest is a mixed bag. And Schopenhaeur has an obnoxious beef with several near-contemporaries such as Lessing and Hegel, which make some of the essays annoying (-1 star). Kudos for calling Tritam Shandy and Don Quixote two of the best novels ever (+1 star).

Dit boek is echt een aanrader voor zowel schrijvers als lezers. Het geeft een heel inzichtelijke kijk op hoe het in beide gevallen zit en waar tekortkomingen zijn.

"Para ler o que é bom uma condição é não ler o que é ruim, pois a vida é curta, o tempo e energia são limitados."
Livro para reler de tempo em tempos.

Schopenhauer is the only philospher whose essays I've ever read voluntarily. He writes better than many of his ilk.
