Description

The World as Will and Idea (also known as The World as Will and Representation) by Arthur Schopenhauer, was originally published in 1818. This edition is the complete 3 volume set, translated by R. B. Haldane and J. Kemp. The pinnacle of Schopenhauer’s philosophical thought, The World as Will and Idea was praised as 'a work of philosophical genius, bold, universal, full of penetration and profoundness', by German writer, Jean Paul. It was quoted by Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man, and the ideas in the book on the unconscious can be found in the works of Jung and Freud. Schopenhauer would become one of the most influential philosophers in Germany.
