Read in January, 1990

Schopenhauer tried to base his philosophy on Immanuel Kant's theorem that metaphysics cannot be considered a science since it cannot inherently be proven through nature. In that course, he failed for a variety of reasons. However, he lays out many good thoughts. One interesting side note is that I learned that his life view had early been shaped by the anger he felt at his mother (and women in general) for pushing him down the stairs when he was young, permanently injuring him.
