On Schopenhauer

Sometimes it is not possible to find the cover corresponding to the book whose edition is published. Please, consider this image only as a reference, it will not always be the exact cover used in the edition of the published book.

An attempt to explain the world by an accepted factor.

The thing in itself becomes one of its possible forms.

The attempt fails.

Schopenhauer did not consider it an attempt.

His thing in itself was opened up by him.

That he did not see this failure can be explained, in that he did not want to feel the dark contradictoriness in the region where individuality ceases to be.

He did not trust his judgment.


The dark drive brought about through a representation mechanism reveals itself as world. This drive is not included under the principium individuationis.
