The Art of Controversy Paperback edition by Arthur Schopenhauer
Examines ethics, religion and psychology. This selection of Schopenhauer's works contains scathing attack on the nature and logic of religion, and an essay on ethics that ranges from the American slavery debate to the vices of Buddhism.
A selection of Schopenhauer's writings on religion, ethics, politics, women, suicide, books and other themes taken from his last work, "Parerga and Paralipomena". It depicts humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil, and each individual absolutely free within a Godless world, in which morality and self-awareness are our only salvation.
Part of the "Everyman" series which has been re-set with wide margins for notes and easy-to-read type. Each title includes a themed introduction by leading authorities on the subject, life-and-times chronology of the author, text summaries, annotated reading lists and selected criticism and notes.
Schopenhauer's perception of the importance of art, morality and self awareness in a blind struggle against a Godless, meaningless world radically transformed our understanding of the individual and remains a searing vision of the human condition.
One of the philosophers of the nineteenth century, believed that human action is determined not by reason but by 'will' - the blind and irrational desire for physical existence. This title includes his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women, suicide, books and many other themes.
In discussions and meetings the aim of everyone is to persuade. Yet we know that really the best result is obtained by the person who is most skilled in holding his position. This title catalogues the 38 subtle tricks businessmen, negotiators, politicians, lawyers use to gain advantage.
