Beschrijving uitgever

Schopenhauer, arch-pessimist of the Western philosophic tradition, asks the following rhetorical questions concerning the value of life to a perfectly rational being: For Schopenhauer, if we could appraise our situation impartially, without being affected by the force of life that prompts us to struggle forward and reproduce endlessly, we would decide that life was nothing but meaningless suffering. We would therefore choose to let the tragedy of existence end with ourselves, and annihilate the human species rather than give birth to new generation.
