Volume 1 of the work that won Arthur Schopenhauer the worldwide acclaim he had long sought, 1851's Parerga and Paralipomena, contains six essays covering the history of the problem of philosophical idealism and realism, professional philosophy, individual fate, spirit seeing, the wisdom of life. The energy behind his thoughts, his lucid and compelling style, and the wide-ranging scope of his investigation make for a dynamic, stimulating, and unforgettable read.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199242208, Paperback)

This is the only complete English translation of one of the most significant and fascinating works of the great philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860). The Parerga (Volume 1) are six long essays; the Paralipomena (Volume 2) are shorter writings arranged under thirty-one different subject-headings. These works won widespread attention with their publication in 1851, helping to secure lasting international fame for Schopenhauer. Indeed, their intellectual vigor, literary power, and rich diversity are still extraordinary even today.
