Arthur SchopenhauerStudies in Pessimism
NOTE.
The Essays here presented form a further selection from Schopenhauer’s
Parerga
,brought together under a title which is not to be found in the original, and does notclaim to apply to every chapter in the volume. The first essay is, in the main, arendering of the philosopher’s remarks under the heading of 
 Nachträge zur Lehre vom Leiden der Welt 
, together with certain parts of another section entitled
 Nachträge zur  Lehre von der Bejahung und Verneinung des Willens zum Leben
. Such omissions as Ihave made are directed chiefly by the desire to avoid repeating arguments alreadyfamiliar to readers of the other volumes in this series. The
 Dialogue on Immortality
 sums up views expressed at length in the philosopher’s chief work, and treated again inthe
Parerga
. The
Psychological Observations
in this and the previous volumepractically exhaust the chapter of the original which bears this title.The essay on
Women
must not be taken in jest. It expresses Schopenhauer’s seriousconvictions; and, as a penetrating observer of the faults of humanity, he may be alloweda hearing on a question which is just now receiving a good deal of attention among us.T.B.S.
