Happiness is the satisfaction of individual desire, but no act of will that succeeds in satisfying individual desire is the attainment of a final aim, in that none brings about a conscious state in which the subject experiences no more unfulfilled desires.

Schopenhauer: A Very Short Introduction

Schopenhauer is considered to be the most readable of German philosophers.

Very Short Introductions. This book gives a succinct explanation of Schopenhauer's metaphysical system, concentrating on the original aspects of thought which inspired many artists and thinkers such as Nietzsche, Wagner, Freud, and Wittgenstein.

Schopenhauer is revealed as a challenging, progressive, and highly influential thinker. Request an Inspection Copy.
