Abstract: Arthur Schopenhauer (22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860) was a German philosopher. He is best known for his 1818 work The World as Will and Representation, in which he argues that the phenomenal world is driven by a malignant metaphysical will that perpetually and futilely strives to achieve satiation. He also wrote influentially on aesthetics, ethics, and religion. Transcendental idealism formed the foundation of his thought, and his atheistic philosophy has been described as an exemplary manifestation of philosophical pessimism. Finding his philosophical conclusions to be compatible with those of much Eastern philosophy, his solutions to the problems of existence and suffering were consequently similar to those of Vedantic and Buddhist thinkers (e.g., asceticism).
Description: Prof Joe Friggieri talks with Rev. Dr. Joseph Borg about the philosophical ideas of Arthur Schopenhauer in connection with the third volume of his publication In-Nisga tal-Hsieb.
