If the people of this religion [Islam] are asked about the proof for the soundness of their religion, they flare up, get angry and spill the blood of whoever confronts them with this question.
Paperback Verified Purchase Schopenhauer can't be taken seriously by a modern reader--that's my contention. He follows Kant in postulating a dualism of phenomenon-noumenon, but argues that we can understand the latter through our own experience of our wills Willewhich allows us to realize that the world is simply the will Wille manifested as phenomena in the Kantian sense.
Can anyone today accept this Westernized version of Vedanta philosophy as truth? Schopenhauer read the Upanishads, but he didn't know about Ramakrishna born too late for Schopenhauer and apparently there was no translation of Patanjali available to him.
Vedanta asserts the same thing with the formula "Tat tvam asi", though the Wille is designated Brahman and far from being a relentless meaninglessness is the source of perfect consolation.
Too much scientific and psychological truth has flowed under the bridge of time since Schopenhauer conceived his philosophy.
Nietzsche, who began as a follower of Schopenhauer, repudiated him because he realized that dualisms of any kind won't account for the hard fact of material reality and its enigmas. Wagner, a soi-disant disciple of Schopenhauer, got around any difficulties by discarding the aspects of Schopenhauer's philosophy that he didn't find congenial, most importantly S's notions about sexual love.
Well, he was a musician, not a logician, and all was grist to his mill. So I don't think anyone now can read Schopenhauer in pursuit of anything more than historical truth, not capital T truth. Those who can read German, I understand, will appreciate S's excellent prose style, far superior to the wooden prose of Kant and Hegel.
If you want to get at least a modest notion of what he was about, the volume under review, a batch of miscellaneous essays is probably a better choice and a better read.
Definitely read the Payne translation in either case. I don't read German but I'm told by those who do that Payne's work is far superior to that of his predecessors. If you want just to find out about Schopenhauer, read either Janeway's brief study or Magee's longer one you can skip a bit with the latter since he attempts to cover everything S wrote.
A major figure in the history of philosophy, definitely the major influence on Wagner, but one of the DWEMs that no longer speaks to us.
