Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860) was a German philosopher known for his atheistic pessimism and philosophical clarity.

The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims, by philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, offers a more accurate and realistic outlook on life than his student. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860) was a German philosopher known for his atheistic pessimism and philosophical clarity. At age 25, he published his doctoral dissertation, On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason, which examined the fundamental question of whether reason alone can unlock answers about the world.

I first read this book of Schopenhauer back in college and enjoyed very . These are later books, mostly just opinions on life and extensions of the basic ideas of his philosophy.

I first read this book of Schopenhauer back in college and enjoyed very much. I just did complete listening to the audio book twice. His overarching observation: what we are as people in and of ourselves is of supreme importance, far outweighing our possessions or our reputation.

While many disagree with Schopenhauer's renunciation of life, there is much to agree with in this book. Schopenhauer doesn't see a whole lot to celebrate in this vale of tears. His general view in "The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims" is summed up thus: Life is hell. Try to find a room furthest from the flames. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was a German philosopher known for his atheistic pessimism and philosophical clarity.

Translated by. T. bailey saunders, . Le bonheur n'est pas chose aisée: il est très difficile de le trouver en nous, et impossible de le trouver ailleurs. If my object in these pages were to present a complete scheme of counsels and maxims for the guidance of life, I should have to repeat the numerous rules-some of them excellent-which have been drawn up by thinkers of all ages, from Theognis and Solomon down to La Rochefoucauld; and, in so doing, I should inevitably entail upon the reader. a vast amount of well-worn commonplace.

by T. Bailey (Thomas Bailey) Saunders. The first and foremost rule for the wise conduct of life seems to me to be contained in a view to which Aristotle parenthetically refers in the Nichomachean Ethics: or, as it may be rendered, not pleasure, but freedom from pain, is what the wise man will aim at. The truth of this remark turns upon the negative character of happiness,-the fact that pleasure is only the negation of pain, and that pain is the positive element in life.

This is Schopenhauer at his most accessible.You could almost view this as a self help book of a rather high quality. Schopenhauer is quite practical and down to earth.Your not going to be happy if you don't have good health and you won't have good health if you pursue bad habits.You need leisure to pursue what interests you and you need a certain amount of money to have that leisure.However , you need only so much.Unceasing pursuit of money is a recipe for misery.The happiness you receive from yourself is greater than anything you can get from those around you.Don't pay undue regard to the opinions of others.The world you live in is shaped by the way you look at it.The most lasting pleasures are those of the mind.Make the most of what you have.Don't expect to be appreciated. Understand that most men mistake the bad for the good and praise the trivial because the good is strange to them.With that in mind you will be about as happy as possible but don't expect too much.

Schopenhauer is the greatest philosopher ever lived. Pessimism is one of his main themes. He said that the world is a big mistake, somthing that ought not to be. But since we are here to suffer due to our own sins, we must try to make the best out of it. The world is a jungle in which everybody tries to devour the other, even the perpetrator and the victor say they must do it otherwise he will be victimized. Schopenhauer in this book gives advice to avoid the evil of other human beings, since they are the main sourse of suffering in the world.
Schopenhauer give us a simple recipes to avoid the thorns and stings of others as best we can, even though we can't avoid fate and our karma completely.
The problem of the world is lack of morality or the unethical conduct of humans toword others.
I highly recommend this book also the book of The Will's Harmonic Motion: The Completion of Schopenhauer's Philosophyotion" for the completion of Schopenhauer Philosophy, second edition.

There is a reason, why this book has stood the test of time, and why it is worth re reading.
In an age of superficial treatment, ie get rich quick schemes, self help, etc. people forget
That intellectual Giants such as shoppe hauler, has more insight presented in one page of his
Book, than a thousand elsewhere. A must read for those seeking the path to wisdom.

Schopenhauer - read him. His view is not the view of the supposed enlightened, but his view is accurate.

I really enjoyed reading this book and took a great deal from it. However, it is not an easy read, at least for me. I quickly realized I had to read on slow regular intervals in order to take in all of the material. That said, the book is pretty dense.

It commented on various topics. It was quite thought provoking about personal matters and relationships with individuals and society. It was time well spent. Easy to understand and grasp.
