This title introduces students to the context, key themes and influence of Schopenhauer's major work, a key text in 19th Century German thought. Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation" is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential texts in nineteenth-century German philosophy. The text provides an avenue through which to introduce and explore a rich assortment of philosophical themes and questions, and represents Schopenhauer's widely discussed attempt to find personal meaning amidst a violent, frustrating and seemingly godless world.
