His work influenced figures as diverse as Wagner, Freud and Nietzsche. Best known as a pessimist, he was one of the few philosophers read and admired by Wittgenstein. In this comprehensive introduction, Julian Young covers all the main aspects of Schopenhauers philosophy. Beginning with an overview of Schopenhauers life and work, he introduces the central aspects of his metaphysics fundamental to understanding his work as a whole: his philosophical idealism and debt to the philosophy of Kant- his attempt to answer the question of what the world is- his account of science- and in particular his idea that will is the essence of all things.

Julian Young then introduces and assesses Schopenhauers aesthetics, which occupy a central place in his philosophy. He carefully examines Schopenhauers theories of the sublime, artistic genius and music, before assessing his ethics of compassion, his arguments for pessimism and his account of salvation.- In the final chapter, he considers Schopenhauers legacy and his influence on the thought of Nietzsche and Wittgenstein, making this an ideal starting point for those coming to Schopenhauer for the first time.
