"Schopenhauer: A Guide for the Perplexed" is a clear and thorough introduction to the work and thought of this important but often difficult thinker. Arthur Schopenhauer is a widely read, admired and intriguing philosopher whose ideas have had a profound impact on some of the greatest minds of the last two centuries. He is known for his powerful but simple prose-style and a philosophy that tackles everyday life. Yet even the most sympathetic and intelligent reader of his works is likely to be perplexed by seeming inconsistencies and unconventional tone of a number of his major claims. "Schopenhauer: A Guide for the Perplexed" is a clear and thorough account of Schopenhauer's philosophy, his major works and ideas, providing an ideal guide to the important and complex thought of this key philosopher. The book explores arguments that he offers for his pessimistic worldview that have long been misunderstood. Geared towards the specific requirements of students who need to reach a sound understanding of Schopenhauer contributions to philosophy, this book also presents an in-depth analysis of his western as well as his hitherto neglected eastern sources and influences. "Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
