The Palgrave Schopenhauer Handbook


This comprehensive Handbook offers a leading-edge yet accessible guide to the most important facets of Arthur Schopenhauer's philosophical system, the last true system of German philosophy.  Written by a diverse, international and interdisciplinary group of eminent and up-and-coming scholars, each of the 28 chapters in this Handbook includes an authoritative exposition of different viewpoints as well as arguing for a particular thesis.  Authors also put Schopenhauer's ideas into historical context and connect them when possible to contemporary philosophy.
Key features:

  • Structured in six parts, addressing the development of Schopenhauer's system, his epistemology and metaphysics, aesthetics and philosophy of art, ethical and political thought, philosophy of religion and legacy in Britain, France, and the US.
  • Special coverage of Schopenhauer's treatment of Judaism, Christianity, Vedic thought and Buddhism
  • Attention to the relevance of Schopenhauer for contemporary metaphysics, metaethics and ethics in particular.

The Palgrave Schopenhauer Handbook is an essential resource for scholars as well as advanced students of nineteenth-century philosophy. Researchers and graduate students in musicology, comparative literature, religious studies, English, French, history, and political science will find this guide to be a rigorous and refreshing Handbook to support their own explorations of Schopenhauer's thought.

Sandra Shapshay is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Political and Civic Engagement Program at Indiana University-Bloomington, USA.
