"We should be grateful to Schopenhauer for managing to express the truth about life so beautifully." -- Alain De Botton, author of The Consolations of Philosophy

The Essential Schopenhauer delivers the first comprehensive English anthology of the seminal philosopher's writings, edited by Wolfgang Schirmacher, president of the International Schopenhauer Association.

This indispensable collection affords readers a uniquely accessible gateway into the monolithic thinker's prodigious body of work. Just as the Harper Perennial Basic Writings series renders the work of Heidegger and Nietzsche accessible for English readers, The Essential Schopenhauer gives us unprecedented access to the complex ideas of this profound and influential thinker.

The Essential Schopenhauer is a book to turn to when all others have failed." -- Alain de Botton, bestselling author of The Consolations of Philosophy and How Proust Can Change Your Life

"Unquestionably one of the most profound and penetrating intellects." -- New York Times

"A great philosopher" -- The Guardian

"Schopenhauer's philosophy has had a special attraction for those who wonder about life's meaning, along with those engaged in music, literature, and the visual arts." -- Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
