bookshelves: existential

While some see Schopenhauer as inconsistent in his writings, he has had a huge effect on psychoanalysis and the works of Freud (even if Freud denied reading Schopenhauer until his old age. In fact, writings (The Interpretation of Dreams) from long before Freud claims to have read Schopenhauer contain detailed references to him. Anyway, Schopenhauer influenced many of my favorite thinkers: Nietzsche, Popper, Tolstoy, Borges, Wagner, and Wittgenstein.
