Arthur Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer
© Copyright Peter Crawford 2014

Arthur Schopenhauer (22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860) was a German philosopher best known for his book, 'Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung' - (The World as Will and Representation) , in which he claimed that our world is driven by a continually dissatisfied will, continually seeking satisfaction.
Influenced to some degree by Eastern thought, his faith in "transcendental ideality" led him to accept the possibility of atheism.
At age 25, he published his doctoral dissertation, 'Über die vierfache Wurzel des Satzes vom zureichenden Grunde' - (On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason), which examined the four distinct aspects of experience in the phenomenal world; consequently, he has been influential in the history of phenomenology.
