The World as Will and Representation is the central work of the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.
One of the most important philosophical works of the nineteenth century, the basic statement of one important stream of post-Kantian thought. It is without question Schopenhauer's greatest work. Conceived and published before the philosopher was 30 and expanded 25 years later, it is the summation of a lifetime of thought.
"...This book will be of interest to general readers, undergraduates, graduates, and scholars in the field."
