    1. I ve been fond of Kant ever since I first encountered him in university Simply put, I admired the way he established ethics as a duty to treat every other man as an end in himself, and not merely as a means I also admired the way he stated a universal command, known as the categorical imperative, or the moral law It is a difficult ethics to follow, but I essentially understood his way of thinking I did have one qualm about him, however Even our philosophy professor noted that his ethics was diff [...]


    2. My relationship with Arthur Schopenhauer s philosophy has always been a little difficult Imagine a long line with three circles A circle on the left end of the line, a circle in the middle of the line and another circle in the right end of the line Both circles on the ends of the line represent an extreme, one I respect and agree with and another one I disagree with and hardly respect, but nonetheless are circles with views I have actual opinions on, or rebuttals for Schopenhauer s acumen The mi [...]


    3. Cet essai a t rejet par la Soci t Royale Danoise, parce qu il constituait une offense s rieuse plusieurs philosophes, moi par contre j ai eu beaucoup de plaisir a voir Schopenhauer faire l attaque frontale Hegel et l imp ratif cat gorique de Kant et a f cheuse loi morale, je trouve que son raisonnement est logique, la compassion comme base de la morale, la piti , l go sme, c est tr s r aliste tout a, loin des moralistes th ologiens qui se cachent derri re la philosophie pour pr cher le dogme, il [...]


    4. A good work to read right after Kant s Groundwork.Worth reading just for Schopenhauer s random and unnecessary tirades against his far popular contemporary Hegel ultimately we have another who is quite unworthy even of these two, who as a man of talent is far inferior to them, namely, the clumsy and senseless charlatan Hegel


    5. Dans cet ouvrage, Schopenhauer r pond une question acad mique relative au fondement de la morale Il s agit toujours de traquer un principe unique au moyen puisse tre caract ris les m urs pour chapper l embarras dans lequel nous jette la multiplicit des avis sur la question La question avait t explor e par Kant dans un ouvrage pr c dent, et la piste m taphysique semble inspirer nos philosophes allemands, car l auteur lui rend un hommage appuy pour lui avoir en quelque sorte ouvert la voie Mais Sc [...]



    6. We don t hear much about Schopenhauer any probably never did, now that I think about it no doubt because he has been so overshadowed by his intellectual descendants, most notably Nietzsche and Marx, but I ve been a big fan for years and have read The World as Will and Representation several times.What struck me about this little gem, besides it s 19th century quirkiness, is the affinity that the current investigation of justice called, loosely, capability theory , promoted mainly by Martha Nussb [...]


    7. Schopenhauer thinks that all human actions can be classified as either based on egoism a desire to satisfy the self , malice a desire to work mischief on another or , what is to him laudable and the only type of action that is truly moral, actions whose origin is the desire to do help others with no care for egoistic satisfaction Based on this premise, I think Schopenhauer s system of morality is far humane than is the Categorical Imperative of Kant or even an utilitarian system of morality pre [...]



    8. In 1837, the Danish Royal Society of Scientific Studies came up with a contest Philosophers had to write essays to answer the important question wherein lies the basis of morality There was only one contender, his name was Arthur Schopenhauer, and he lost the contest Well, how is that possible The Basis of Morality published in 1840 is Arthur Schopenhauer s attempt to answer the above mentioned question Schopenhauer accomplished mainly three goals 1 offering an intensive critique of Kant s syste [...]


    9. In 1837, the Danish Royal Society announces a prize for a suitable essay on the basis of morals Schopenhauer submits the only entry and compiles it into a book The Royal Society claims Schopenhauer did not understand the question and did not award him the prize Preface to the book RAAAAAANNNNNNNNT What a great ensemble of insults The man is bitter Delicious.To the juice of it Schop pr s amigos first dedicates an entire section to a devastating critique of Kant s moral philosophy, according to wh [...]
