"Essays and Aphorisms" is my introduction to Schopenhauer, an introduction that has led me to decide that I will have to read all of the Dutch-German philosopher's works. Schopenhauer was a major influence on Nietzsche, but I am now wondering if in this case the teacher was more brilliant and important than the student....

Of course, Schopenhauer also influenced the likes of Jung, Wittgenstein, Wagner, and Weininger, among others...Enuff said..
