qualities that distinguish the magisterial and definitive of Mr. Ribot work. The most recent book French devoted to Schopenhauer, the beautiful book of Mr. Bossert, is also a work of all first order as deep and sagacious to read nice 3T so curious physiognomy of the great German pessimist there is studied with infinitely: 1e picturesque and relief. There are also excellent things and quite charming pages as literary master in the old study of Caro on pessimism, broad summary table where the portrait he draws of Schopenhauer occupies the foreground. The author of the Moral Studies on the Present Time was not superficial mind, the philosopher amateur that it has rather foolishly persiflé during his lifetime and never existed only in the imagination of his detractors. It was, instead, a metaphysician professional, loving great speculative problems, perfectly able to understand the austere but irresistible and pathetic beauty; c was also, unfortunately, a philosopher, devoid of outstanding personality, and concerns of common morality often affect the sharpness of his judgments. That is why in his study, by no means negligible, very distinguished literary, sometimes charming to read viewpoint, it is shocked at every moment by bias to seek above all the social and aesthetic of pessimism; consequences set bias even before that a serious refutation of the philosophy of Schopenhauer showed us the right and well founded. It is not as well as judging and condemning a man of genius, a thinker such as the metaphysician of The World as Will and Representation. How much more deep, more meaningful, more shrewd, appear Renouvier trials pessimism. The head of the school of French criticism auguste, illustrated and very prominent philosopher with the incessant toil and the immense talent, depth and originality of views, the powerful unity of doctrine, are worthy of the admiration of the philosophical world, the author of this Essay of Classification Systems , gigantic work, dealt several times of the theory and the ideas of the German metaphysician first in the extraordinary synthesis which we quote the litre, monument of erudition, of understanding and of speculative thought, then in other works, more recent publication, meaning and value not less major, but mainly in this so curious book entitled: History and Solution of Metaphysical Problems where the chapter in which Renouvier studied the philosophy of Schopenhauer is a masterpiece of analysis and synthetic reconstruction; masterpiece where the richness of ideas is so great and so vivacious, where each row contains so many new insights, deep comments, that the intelligence of the reader experiences a kind of Vertigo by browsing. But the appearance of Schopenhauer sharper, clearer still stands in the admirable books of Mr. Alfred Foullee. No philosophical in France artwork appears larger, more beautiful, more worthy of admiration than Mr. Foullee, and we are pleased to express once more enthusiastic admiration she inspires us and to note also that this admiration of his disciples - we modestly claim a very humble among the most faithful place-this admiration spreads to more foreign media and more indifferent to high speculation; It penetrates into the deeper layers of

———————————————————————————— CHAPTER I: Critics and commentators The engineering and l' work of Schopenhauer were studied more d' once in France, at the time where pessimism, replaced aujourd'hui, quite unfavorably d' elsewhere, by the ferocious and arbitrary theories of Nietzsche and his school, by the cult of brute force and the theory of will to power, at the time where the great metaphysician of the Fourfold Root of Sufficient Reason was fashionable in the literary world intellectual and even in society to the contentions of dilettantism. Among these works of criticism or d 'Scholarship, we can mention any d' first the few placements d' together really worthy of Schopenhauer that were dedicated to him by the masters of our French philosophical literature. The best-known and most popular is undoubtedly the work of Mr. Ribot, a classic volume, which obtained a legitimate and resounding success. It is an excellent work, a monograph at ait remarkable and which is the highest honour to the distinguished Director of the philosophical magazine. It is difficult, it seems, to summarize with greater clarity, sharpness and impartiality, a philosophy as original, as subtle, complex, and which offends all intellectual habits and all the beliefs of strangers to metaphysical speculation. It is to these that caters especially Mr. Ribot, and the influence of its volume was beneficial as possible, because it gives a very precise idea of the doctrine, trends and the personality of Schopenhauer to the reader having never read a line of the master. Known on the other hand, the high intellectual value of the author of these beautiful studies of experimental psychology, which shine at the forefront of modern productions of the French school; and we know that strength, originality and the smooth homogeneity of his thought have proved brilliantly in most important works; but that sidesteps on Schopenhauer, despite its simplicity, remains one of the most admirable works of Mr. Ribot, and German authors of certain monographs pedantic and aggressive might benefit some, if they deigned to assimilate lucidity, safety of exposure and the impeccable composition, all order and measurement

the public and becomes so unanimous that it looks finally to popularity and to glory. The glory! If legitimate wage of all workers there thought, enjoyed the most mediocre of the pamphleteers and the vaudeville often, while public opinion the hassle and refuses so do meanness opinionated philosophers and thinkers. It is good however, it is beneficial and just that from time to time a man of genius which the stupid crowd is unable to understand works, trends and the ideal that it pursues, is admired and known, and it is an excellent example that a metaphysician has in turn of this unanimity of incompetent votes including the smallest specialist in the areas of exact sciences prides itself too often. For so long the fools of all parties affected not not only ignore the immense work done by the philosophy of our country of France, but of will treat lightly the key problems and the raison d'etre of the philosophy itself. The intellectual and moral authority exercised today by a man such as the illustrious author of the Future of the Metaphysics makes it almost impossible this great disdain. Even the vulgar reader of newspapers, that our public leaves gossip are the unique intellectual food knows vaguely that the contemporary France has a great philosopher, a metaphysician of genius, a thinker who is the equal of the most famous masters of speculative thought, the pride of our country, the glory truest and noblest of our time. All taunting, all jealous and anxious mediocrity attacks can prevail against a certain fact: never philosophy n was in France as many prominent representatives and zeal really meritorious considering the indifferent reception which our literate public reserves for their work, and nobody admires most sincerely that the author of these lines the high value and the meaning of the philosophical movement that occurs from twenty years in the land of Descartes and Malebranche, where the noble traditions of speculative thought seemed once abandoned forever. But despite the immense talent, l originality, brilliance, depth of metaphysicians such as Mr Bergson, Boutroux, Ribot, Liard, Bourdeau, Lévy-Bruhl, Durkheim, Gabriel Séailles and many others, not to mention illustrious masters based supreme sleep today, Vacherot, Ravaisson, Saisset, Secretan, Renouvier, Brochard, the immensity of the work accomplished, the multiplicity of problems there covered, the power of moral influence on the European philosophical movementthe perfect control in the study of all the phenomena of life social, artistic or intellectual, a thinker such as Alfred Foullee, provide without possible dispute, an absolute in the world of high thought supremacy philosophical, as well as unreasoned and instinctive judgment of the crowd. It is for us what Kant was once for Germany, that Herbert Spencer was for the Anglo-Saxon peoples: the the most famous representative of the metaphysical of his country and his race, the respected master tradition, admired by all, entered living in immortality, the thinker whose work and glory will not growing, which has created a thriving and whose name school illustrated and popular at the time, dominates the tumult of political factions and the selfish interests. And it is only justice. Because, I repeat in all sincerity, Mr. Alfred excavated is a man of genius, in the sense of this word that is too often used today without rhyme or reason. It has built a new system of the universe, he rebuilt the world on a new plane, he created one of these vast metaphysical syntheses where the first Enigma - the origins and destinies - seems to be resolved in a genial intuition and where the mysterious Image of the universe, the whole of being, of all existing or potential realities this great Image where each of us is found. According to his speech, fighting, suffering, enjoying, loving, beautiful momentarily victorious, always sure to be defeated at the end, where the Image of the world appears sharper, livelier, more accessible to our weak eyes. By the immanent force of realization, in a future likely to be directed, ennobled, and used for the Cause of the noblest Ideal spoke strength to move from the. power to the Act which he assigns to the ideas, - base starting point of his conception of the world and essential-, Mr. Foullee wanted to abolish the ancient barriers remaining between matter and spirit, between the physical universe and human consciousness, psychology and Cosmology, positive science and the science of the soul, the thought and Action. In any case, even in the judgment of those who, as the author of these lines, remain faithful to the principles of philosophical dualism, Mr. Alfred excavated re-established harmony so ardently sought, the individual life with the universal life, and by that even the fundamental and ultimate world unit: by the admirable demonstration of sociological element that resides at the bottom of the instinct of speculative researchbeing that the need for the universal and the universe being the largest of the groups to which we belong. It has completely renewed the method and purpose of social sciences; work already outlined by the pathetic Guyau, this noble thinker, died too young, after writing three or four books that will remain among the purest masterpieces of philosophy and the lettres Françaises, metaphysician remarkable including Mr. Foullee spoke so eloquently, flame and emotion sublime in a book which is also a genuine masterpiece. But the principles of metaphysical reform, renewal of philosophy by the sociological element, these principles laid down by Guyau with both safety and authority are still only outlined in his work. It is Mr. excavated which has developed in a series of immortal works pertaining to the same doctrine of ideas forces, of immanent monism, to much idealistic trends in their scientific rigor that animates the entire philosophical work of this illustrious thinker. Among his works should be about quote, since the philosophy of Plato, this monument of erudition and creative thinking at once, where relives the Platonic wisdom, until the last volume published by Mr. Fouillée. And the sociological effects of speculative investigation trend is itself one of the aspects under which appears to us the doctrine of Mr. Alfred Foullee, one of the solutions of the eternal problem which, better than anyone, he understood and expressed the complexity and

3
multiplicity of diverse perspectives that it has, because who would therefore dare list or even assess the possible attributes of the be? A doctrine like that of Schopenhauer, a philosophy that was preponderant and decisive on the destiny of speculative thought, influence and which, despite its absolute originality, appears as a new phase, as a logical consequence of the major reform accomplished to the decline of the eighteenth century by Emmanuel Kant, a system as grandiose, ingenious, and, it must be said also disconcerting, if we look at it from the point of view of good plain meaning and bourgeois logic, should inevitably attract the attention of a historian and a critic of ideas philosophical here that Mr. Alfred excavated, whose erudition, knowledge and high understanding of all contemporary doctrines amazes us as much as his gifts of creator. On several occasions, the philosopher of la Psychologie tien idées-forces they ideas of the great metaphysician of The World as Will and Representation . First of all in one chapter more substantial and the most informative of his history of philosophy, classic work that Mr. Foullee has completed recently by adding a conclusion which is a pure masterpiece of eloquence, brilliant synthesis, light and prophetic future of metaphysics intended penetration. In Plato's Philosophy, this admirable monograph where revit any doctrine of the inspired and sagacious master who leads, since so many centuries, the corrupt souls of absolute truth at the eternal Banquet; in the part, during this immense critical and historical synthesis the influence still visible and alive of Platonic thought on modern philosophy, Mr Foullees, in some wonderful pages of insight, depth, synthetic brevity, summed the value and the meaning, the fundamentals and the importance of the metaphysics of Schopenhauer. But it is especially in a book truly extraordinary brightness, the variety, the abundance of ideas, book translated in all languages, admired and commented by professional worldwide philosophers, it is mainly in his essay of Criticism of the Contemporary Systems of Morality that Mr. Foullee a trace a definitive Schopenhauer portrait; It is there that he studied with a master's degree, an authority and a sagacity that are certainly exceeded per person, the initial trends of this great doctrine. Maybe illustrated by author of the Psychology of European People does not enough justice to the metaphysical value and especially to the value purely aesthetic and literary Schopenhauer as a thinker and writer, is absolutely exceptional, numerous studies that it has continued at different times his own career & critical g and historian, however, remain what it wrote more remarkable deepest and most comprehensive French language on this subject; and in this vein, as in all possible areas philosophical scholarship and superior speculation, it is in the works of Mr. Alfred Foullee the French player will have to seek accurate data and reliable information. We are justice, has been s convince, talent and efforts deployed by French commentators of Schopenhauer, it is deeply regrettable nonetheless to point out, in a study on The World as Will and Representation author translations of similar studies that have appeared on Germany.

They would allow the public able to still look at the problems of high speculation, to fully assimilate the thought of Schopenhauer, down some subtleties which have escaped the investigation of the most authorized among French critics. In all cases, higher value tudesques works inspired by this great philosophy would complement the notion that we we in are formed. Those whose immediate translation is required for the science of our dear country renowned, include first three masterful monographs, interesting each to various titles, Paulsen, Volkelt, and the volume of the collection of the great modern philosophers who established once the immense notoriety by Mr. Kuno Fischer, where he studied the work and biography of Schopenhauer with a thoroughness a concern of characteristic detail, a scientific consciousness almost exaggerated, but with incomparable authority, a force of deduction and erudition. Do I dare to confess despite my esteem for the famous professor who spoke so nobly our great Descartes, despite the very beautiful pages that contains his study of Schopenhauer, - some are even beautiful,-dare I say well clearly I place altogether at the same rank as this biography critical (on cite la yet usually before all others)admirable studies of two other contemporary German philosophers, the one and the other very well known in their home country, almost ignored in France. The book of Mr. Volkelt, Professor at Leipzig-is a beauty of analysis unrivalled. It is superb clarity, embossed, of picturesque resemblance, de and lengths, scholarly, but tiring dissertations for the public, which add to the classic work of Kuno Fischer, are totally absent, which is rare in a German book. This is an absolutely outstanding job, deep, interesting and ingenious invoice, sober and clever composition, reading, easy, executed by a metaphysician, professional, also able than unbearable pedants that swarm the country of Kant and Fichte, Schelling, and Schopenhauer, but which differs favourably his colleagues by vivacity, clarity and a talent writer almost comparable to the talent of the philosopher which it exposes us, history and doctrine with so much verve, method and simple eloquence. I would say as much of the study of Paulsen, and since me an opportunity to cite the name of the famous philosopher, how not to say that we should have also since long a translation of his admirable Introduction to Philosophy. It is one of the masterpieces of modern speculative thought, one of the great philosophical books of this time; as the author is, without doubt, one of the most eminent metaphysicians of the time. It is a very great spirit and value offline writer, thinker of all first order of magnitude than Germany, this Peerage of high speculation does not have at this time of more robust, more ingenious or more powerful. Yet once its famous Einleitung in die Philosophy is an authentic masterpiece, it must make it known in France. And how many other German studies among all the literature that was the genius of Schopenhauer, how many biographies, reviews, tests, or other similar work deserves could also be translated and known.

This fanatic worship of monism presented as unique explanation of the world.

Should join in support of Celtic assertion a few quotes that wake up in remembrance of the admirers of the master the emotions to void other peers of their first readings? This world with all its phenomena is the objectification of the will. wonderful and terrible in this table to the immense human misery. the will. certainly. hostility and blind omnipotence us overwhelm the world force and matter. an approximate same understanding of a fleeting vision. Not. starting point and deep of his doctrine repeatedly. in this reflux. so there is only one will. wonderful and terrible world which we are part. it has no stability. planets and the milky way are just confusing and precise images both from the infinite dream that continues this eternal dreamer called the human mind. source with eloquence. in itself the world is that will. of initial terror of existence. almost impossible! First. . on those roads to learning leading to no port of tranquility. we had interview it all. material. Thence the great thrill of Shakespearean horror that it causes. While all the splendor and all overwhelming quantities that radiate in the path of the stars. if the survey we would like to outline briefly. thinkers and sages of all time and of all races have really cl anxiously sought among the ghosts of the material reality. but on the findings of the metaphysical system of Schopenhauer.

with power and splendour of this dialectic the eloquence that illuminates the immortal pages of The World as Will and Representation. so relaxing and so beautiful investigations among the fierce precision of Science and the distressing pettiness of determinism. but whatever! Any explanation of the world. dune metaphysical truth that is well worth the truth of experimental sciences. it can be said that. identity is it. Because if Schopenhauer shows us a series of dazzling analyses and of eloquent descriptions of teaching that the will is the essence of the world. any more than to Herbert Spencer bringing the same design of gasoline of the world to the concept of Force. Creator and evocative of the Cosmos. the initial cause of the being will. Note also that the dilemma of this report. the pessimism there shall be no catch on its trends and intimate beliefs. Read or Cousin. he enters yet as much as his predecessors in these regions of arbitrary and unreal including cloud beauties sublime and pathetic are beyond any rational assessment. or else his frustration becomes the supreme wisdom. With the philosophy that teaches us that Kant's noumenon. it causes even. this will password is chosen due to lack of better. analyzed. cruel and hateful. if it deems the pessimism a doctrine also incomplete and also unacceptable that optimism uncompromising Leibniz. drunkenness and the pleasure the excitement and charm. the metaphysician who tells us: here is the explanation of the world that seems to solve the difficulties and troubling mystery. when a philosopher says that the thing in itself. particularly as it merges with the object of this study. everything that surrounds us and everything throbs in us protest and revolts. Relations imposed on us with the overwhelming immensity of the world and all to be. Alternatively. But if he considers the purpose that the ultimate reality seems to wrap with the vague and uncertain criterium of human morality.: when he pronounces a verdict of moral order on the essence of being. and rebuilt in countless different ways. and its value is measured by the amount of phenomena which he explains. We pronounce his sentence. Yes. their ideas. it is legitimate. on this world of the invisible. source of being. But if he continues his demonstration until you want to establish an absolute between want and suffering. much more important than people think in general. is provided by the doctrine of Schopenhauer. many times. each major system of the universe. if she refuses to abdicate the illusion. and our capacity for suffering on joy. life seems good and desirable. and should insist on this issue. atomism Fichte than the subjective self. always incomplete image. It has usual. their legal nature render refractory for the initial tendency of one of these two great doctrines. but whose metaphysical foundations are very certainly legitimate than those of materialism. when Schopenhauer identifies the desire to live. despite the genius of Schopenhauer. understood. Also. to deride quite tut-tutting the classic division of the faculties of rallies in three clearly .) The metaphysician retraces us a world Image. how will he manage to convince us. Here is the principle of being and thought. with suffering. said to have experienced. but always beneficial and lucid. if our entire being aspiring to happiness. really. the metaphysician remains within its legitimate sphere of action and noble independence. and when he develops his thesis. greatness and sustainability even resident philosophy. since it establishes in principle of intelligibility universal one of the mysterious forces including the hierarchy escapes us. inaccessible to human judgement. since it corresponds to one of the major observations of experimental sciences. in a rational and precise manner. we cannot no probative objection. without exceeding the rights which assigns to each of us the beneficent Faculty of metaphysical reverie. readily confused with unpleasant paradoxes. the original Source from which springs the torrent events and stuff. the fatalism of the laws may appear as two different aspects and antithetical. i. singularly difficult to establish in conceivable terms.e. as said Schopenhauer. this dilemma is likely that two solutions that come down necessarily all others: pessimism or optimism. the universe may be designed. acceptable in any case. Acut convince us that everything is only pain and disappointment in this world. (I choose here bias the sample of a doctrine of subjective idealism having the gift to exasperate the bourgeois logic and especially vulgar minds. There. it is point and cannot be other. the prospective absolute. the effects. all the taunts and all baffles critics remain powerless to destroy his work. despite its terrifying truth that contains its doctrine. each great philosophical doctrine contains truth. And neither optimism nor pessimism can be refuted to an absolute rebuttal and they can convince those that their temperament. no other such. Because its philosophical enlightens us and we commented the universe. If our soul refuses to believe that life is an evil. we in the problematic nature that revotent its ambitious and grandiose.e. Moreover. and the hypothetical nature of this new attempt is in way diminishes in our eyes the profound significance and the greater truth. opponents of monism and assumptions remain beautiful and fertile. Leibniz as a dynamic and spiritualist at once. always provisional solution. it more amenable to discussion. we will find certainly no compelling argument that can refute its system. he cannot incur no kid blame on the part of proponents of dualism. or we regard bad. Once again. the ultimate goal and issuing single and without return. especially if the ultimate verdict by the philosopher is a conviction against which Nature and Instinct of the soul. inevitably incomplete. he brings an unknown solution to the eternal Riddle. It cannot be said of the innate tendency at any philosopher and who encouraged him to establish a relationship of mutual influence and immediate reaction between the metaphysical principle of the world and our ephemeral sensitivity of narrow and fragile creatures. triumph and joy. An example very characteristic of this truth. nowadays. It is worth living. i. and prove that he is wrong.14 Against this definition of the Essence of the world no critical reserve cannot prevail. that the whole universe in its first reality is that desire.

Similarly. if it asserts itself in immortal pages that are among the most perfect productions of the master. must be really as defined the poet from Parerga and Paralipomena. Book III. corresponds to human sensibility. in Hemstertuis. leads to this definition if clear. as a result. They are for us the first manifestation of the essence of the world. such that have developed it innate psychic Organization Forms and the reactions exerted on it the incomprehensible universe. origin and goal of Art. No classification adapts better to the truth itself. While it is nice to make a new method or an unknown truth. known. and deeper in the human will. the tumult of events. separate Faculty of the intelligence and the will. CHAPTER IV: THE spell of beauty The definition of beauty. The sensitivity. if it is an imitated strong. and that was without any doubt the most powerful genius of antiquity. thoughts and human feelings is covered whole. Aesthetics is the science which corresponds to the sensitivity. All of the reactions of the quivering me despite him multiple storms of the senses. if little known. understand or want life. this chapter of aesthetics which is certainly one of the most extraordinary parties of Schopenhauer's masterpiece. is that essentially is that the idea which is its object.. The main merit of Schopenhauer as a theorist of beauty. we will provide a few decisive in support of the thesis that we would like to develop ourselves and who will perhaps provide the system of the grand philosopher in a new light. compelling and unforgettable: the artistic genius considered as such objects are the eternal ideas. persistent and critical world forms. the change of epochs. such as the presents Schopenhauer in his aesthetic. by a similar harmony. given el accepted metaphysics of will. Die Welt als Wille: it is necessary to support the opinion of Plato which recognizes own to ideas existence and which gives to things located in time and space (i. whose fortune him fast and bright. systems of the neo-Platonists. As he says himself in the chapter entitled the independent representation of the principle of desire. but careful of the conclusions. is expressed in the history of the three basic sciences which lead the three initial trends that some scientific popularization works were somewhat discredited. by isolating each of these faculties with a superficial and stupid formalism. while in the reality they complement each other and connect into a living synthesis. all of this is that accidental form. which is the inventor (the word: aesthetic. but singularly lacking basic education. you can feel. Hegel and Kant. we may say. endless enthusiasm where his elect draw inspiration. Gold. Good old philosophical into three distinct groups Science division is the number of these unjustly dedaignees beneficial truths and a quick study. S cycle sensations. Herder. but above all of the admirable Plotinus. invincible and unalterable youth in this world where everything goes. But it is point here of a discovered any. since the reason finds in it the satisfaction of this ardent need for universal unity which torments and fragmentary science can give him.at Baumgarten himself. always pure and immutable. it is sometimes useful to recall certain truths. we struck not by the novelty or the absolute originality.. the intermediate principles between the primordial unity which all proceeds and emanates and the changing multiplicity of phenomena. This is a beautiful discovery. German philosopher of the eighteenth century. artistic genius and the living Ideal. at Salzer)Mengs. if different depending on the country and the centuries. in good faith and in all philosophical seriousness. people are very sincerely that this term so popular today. even assuming that it is nothing else than the dune Force psychic and any immanent manifestation. felt or wanted by the perishable creature who contemplates a few moments changing mirages. none match. in a way more accurate and more sagacious. And at Baumgarten. intelligence and the will. which reflects in his intimate essence and highest inspirations. is that it proceeds directly from general conception of the world and the destiny and that. in Schiller. seeking always to a new purpose. which are necessary to Schopenhauer in the regions of the metaphysics of pure as well as in those of aesthetics and morality. the reason and the moral sense form the living unity of the individual. of the soul and the spirit. no other definition of Art is possible. latest Science also. under pretext of innovation and modernity. so much so that some estimable. Yes. everything that the individual considers as real) no more reality than ghosts or to dreams and it adds further: the idea is objectivity the most perfect of the will. We know all Platonic sense that Schopenhauer. aesthetics relates to the whole of his philosophical doctrine. But the Art stops the wheel of time. finally. . that of every creative instinct. the history of humanity. This definition involved also.e. and. relationships disappear for him. this giant of speculative thought. ethics or morality expresses what there is more noble. and that can afford to price reduced by opening any school philosophy textbook. forms of human life. suggestive and deep definitions have deepened and substantially determined the notion of the beautiful and the psychological mechanism of creation and aesthetic pleasure.15 differentiated groups: sensitivity '. obviously. deep theories mystical emanation as they grow in cloudy and sublime of the Alexandrian school. If the world is really identical to that which Schopenhauer traces us the tragic and grandiose vision. It remains okay with the primordial principles of the Science du Beau. assigns to the eternal ideas. and admirable. various modes of our present life. metaphysics is rational by excellence science. the phenomenon of wrinkled in which is adequate will objectivity. This way of understanding the hierarchy of the universal forces and the meaning of ideas also very logically derives aesthetics.at least as a theoretical study of the creative faculty that . appointed time the study of beauty and art . The world can be designed. very old already but we forget too often. And finally. the theory of Art and beauty that Schopenhauer was built with a talent for dazzling writer and that no professional litterateur will never equal perhaps.

but they cannot compete with the radical innovation qualities that distinguish. it expresses the essence of the being. sustainability and charm. blind suction and insatiable lust that is will. of the radical negation of happiness and joy.16 And once again. veiled with tears or filled with horror. to void other alike. for example. fateful and imperishable illusions where the living creatures and the countless worlds of cosmic systems draw strength and an obligation to continue their pointless and tragic pilgrimage roads of infinity and eternity. Nobody has expressed more forcefully. harmful and lamentable desire penetrate us admiration. suffering and hardship of the universal existence. and all that they give to the human soul. But where Schopenhauer is really incomparable. Art is really higher than life. long before him. the thing in itself of Kant. the greatness. mysterious and elusive. concrete. which is called a work of art. fine arts. consolation and courage. so most appalling. Kant and in Hegel. Holiness. the thing in itself. Therefore. certainly. Because it is this negation leads all sincere pessimism. Art radiates and soars above the misery. And we would easily find ourselves similar initial aspirations in Lessing. rise anxiously towards the pure light that it spreads on this world of slavery and the ineffable gift of moral appeasement. in Ruskin. because it allows you to forget it. in a work of imagination. albeit momentary. a grandiose emotion. the mysterious noumenon. at Richard Wagner or Taine.e. very definitely. all the system purely metaphase Schopenhauer. penetrates and sanctify our poor wounded hearts. in the August of beauty and mysterious concept. this cannot be done by a change in the subject. All the arguments of Schopenhauer come down to this purely arbitrary axiom: we have as individuals any knowledge that is subject to the principle of sufficient reason this form excludes the knowledge of the Platonic ideas: it follows that if we are able to speak of knowledge of particular things to that of ideas. eloquently and engineering the spell that emerges from this supreme conquest: beauty perfect. it reveals the secret Fund of nature. indignation. vain and fruitless effort toward an impossible happiness. fuller and more real than the vain ghosts of material existence place with our eyes the annoying and pathetic drafts. It is a more powerful reproduction and more exact of the Platonic ideas where to objective will. the highest traditions of Kantian idealism. fierce pursuit of the characteristicthe general and the universal symbolized and understood its essence deep and intimate. Yes. of healing. eloquence pine stronger and more sober at the time. all this is more than a memory whose melancholy shadows blend gradually with the ghosts to the calm and distant smile whose Art evokes to our eyes the age-old theory. placing with absolute pessimism. wisdom. a symbol of the Essence world's living. harmony and perfection absent in the real world or supposedly such. most truthful. We call on the Art of being the faithful mirror of reality. sort of intermediary between the reality of this world and the mysterious world of the beyond. with eloquence and bitter intensity Schopenhauer brought in all and that make his work so alive and so moving. expression. is that pain. Schopenhauer proves nothing. sincerity of most moving focus. the absolute manifesting in this singular phenomenon. If the desire to live is an evil. synthesized. how can the faithful reproduction of this cursed. . and that all sophistries and all paradoxes will fail to abolish. image (the absolute)joy and enchantment of earthly exile. But the metaphysics of Schopenhauer has taught us. the existence can act on our soul as a beneficent and renovator principle? Nobody. more complete and more eloquent imperishable model including human beings and things in this world we are uncertain and insufficient copies of clumsy imitations. our despair. all illustrious masters who created the science of the beautiful and called her from new destinies so bright that it maybe today exceeds the expectations of those who have discovered her once. our remorse. the goal of Liberation. The aesthetics of the master pessimistic only reissue in a new form. our disappointments. our cruel. is in the sublime pages he devotes to the Mission of immortal Art. at least. the nobility. his concept of the universe el his ontology. more than any other. And the will. and radiating the one and the other to the distant regions of the absolute ideas. the essence of the world lies in the principle of life and suffering. and by that same. perhaps. cruelty and lies to live. Among the dazzling and pathetic visions aroused by his genius. in some image. With eloquence. Intuitive. I confess however that they have never managed to convince me. all these reflections of general aesthetics are of great beauty and intellectual power worthy of the philosopher of genius who seem to have inherited. and bruised at each step in any real life that they give him comfort of hope. That. Person expressed with a more persuasive emotion. Our sorrows. had thought about the strange phenomena of aesthetic pleasure. and the effort of engineering the defeat and destroy it. where he spoke really new and profound words whose remembrance will point disappear and which changed profoundly our understanding of beauty. appeasement and this kind of moral well-being that is the result and the reward of the creation or aesthetic contemplation? There is certainly a contradiction that has escaped so far countless commentators of the great German philosopher. read and re-read the extraordinary masterpiece that is called the world as will el as representation more often than the author of these lines. Our looks. the bases of any aesthetic rational and worthy of the name. of divine forgetfulness. if it persists in wanting to define the mystery of Art. before it in passing. healing and Consolation that artist should continue above all. the fundamental insights of those who. our heartbreaking regret. i. fiery and painful research. Arguments that Schopenhauer detractors against me are known. its moral will result in an absolute negation of life. how the image enlarged. exiled. there where it is more than all of his predecessors. It is the source of disappointing. eternity hug by a perishable creature.

As a mystery is one fact like any other. some psychological apperception. That emotion exists. Similarly. in this release of egotism resident greatness. we will answer perhaps. a pattern of appeasement. a fragment of the being in the ontological acceptance of the word. being and non-being. Participating more in the atrocious tragedy of existence where once itself played its role-(and this role is still that of a dupe or a victim regardless of the finery and illusory grandeur or ephemeral wealth which underlie the human comedy performers. we did not discuss a fact. original source of the world. With the quiet pleasure of undying selfishness. issued by all other dependencies. The explanation appears plausible. the sentimental tranquility and vibrant joy as a cry of issuance it provides.17 It is this change that are precisely the mystery and the magic spell of immortal Art. in their three main classifications: time. We also believe that in us and around us all is that mystery. it is necessary that this soul are a conscious life. our leads suffers more. mystical areas just to achieve this issued soul contemplates torture and sterile efforts of his aniciens companions in captivity. without it point possible miracle. We are not thinking to deny that there are mysterious and disturbing in the sudden flowering of beauty blossomed suddenly among the eyesores. it becomes a topic purely knowing. However. as well as the world as representation exists. why the dazzling and fatal vision of the world arose from the abyss of nothingness. space and causality are what they are and that they could be different? questions found at the base of any doctrine of ontology. who lead and dominate the world. as well as the the most intransigent pessimist must admit the existence of this world that he cursed and in which he sees a fabric mirages. the living problem of aesthetic beauty and creative zeal. How. likewise the artist evokes nether one world shadow. The aesthetic emotion is a fact and a result of immediate intuition. How linked yet to all the philosophical pessimism doctrine. cherish it. The miracle of Art and beauty occurs suddenly. worry devouring the personal happiness of the disappointing and petty ambition where flourishes the bitter essence of me. a principle of healing and joy? The joy is absent from this absurd and hateful world. now absorbed in deep contemplation of the object that is offered to him. vexatious and without scope criticism. Certainly. And. the denial. suffering. as a product of me otherwise as its first cause. It must be admitted. if it is evil absolute and radical. nobility. unfathomable why the will manifests itself as a representation. We will never know why the being exists. Even that Divine intelligence created the world on the model of the eternal ideas. darkness and storms of this world. It is the same then the slave who broke his chains. since Grand forces and eternal ideas). even in power otherwise act. subject to laws and innate forms of the human intellect. its reproduction in the masterpieces of Art can become beneficial. dilemmas disappointing or tragic. We must bless him. will become for us a cause of moral development. rational. It is the knowledge that freed the will service.' The soul that loses itself in aesthetic contemplation is free from the bondage of selfishness. the mysterious moment of aesthetic emotion. forever doomed to suffering that he dreads and desires both? The reasoning of the vulgar. He must accept it as the essential premise that makes possible the work of the artist and the joy of one who contemplates his work. And this definition of Art. something unpleasant that we appear the horrible common sense. but sublime spectacle.our intelligence in enjoys now as a morose and scary. These conditions do not eliminate the shadowy side of the phenomenon that escapes or that seems to escape the law of causality and sufficient reason. in its intimate depths. The subject then ceased to be purely individual. insoluble conundrum. the eternal prototypes of phenomena. under the fatal yoke of universal determinism. since it brings us deduction deduction to an anathema without thanks to a final sentence of life? How can we accept that the contemplation of these Platonic ideas that remain in a thinker of tradition also essentially idealistic as Schopenhauer. But if the desire that Art expresses contains really no element of joy and perfection. the charity of art. even if its sufficient reason escapes us. admiration or terror a distraught soul. whatever? This is the thrilling puzzle. It is the living symbol of its conducive and beneficial action. if the consequence of this assumption seems contradictory. the same contemplation entirely selflessly of his omnipotence and prestige can provide the spiritual benefits which the productions of genius are so profuse. the yoke and the customary anxiety of the will. this definition is admirable. pain and disappointment. to deploy their omnipotence. yet again. is quite convincing when he opposed to the aesthetics of Schopenhauer a compelling objection. it is based on a contradiction logic and speculative obvious. . Such a requirement would lead us too far and in ways of subtlety where the human spirit not strayed that too long once in a past of pedantry and discard philosophy. how and why to proclaim that the contemplation of ideas. Unnecessary distinction. almost irrefutable to intransigent pessimists. Art takes one who savors the voluptuousness to the regions of . worship him for this grace of oblivion it awards among the disappointments and sorrows of life. their invincible passion and their countless wonders. or simply to read discussion of the phenomenon of the aesthetic emotion cannot give any appreciable results. But even that recognizes the existence of a mystery. is that sterile desire. For a miracle enters enthusiasm. What right do you hope lu make conquest sacred to the same sources of this universe cursed and incomprehensible. it recognizes also the conditions that govern its appearance among the shadows and rays of the existence. but they allow us to think and to talk on a mode that has a meaning and a precise meaning. source of being and the immediate reflection of the desire to live. But the will. desirable and sacred. why finally these forms. Or. because the essence of being is expressed whole. more harmonious that one physical appearances. since the will which is that suffering becomes a principle of appeasement and beauty on the studied through the prism of Art. we will always repeat. that exists yet as representation otherwise as will and appearances.

the joy is not only a principle limiting or purely negative. a compact darkness of a stormy night allows us to proclaim with joy the day and light reign over the world. there are in its moral unrivalled serenity. a stop in the desert of the earthly existence. even if we equate it u a quick Flash. Some glimmers of calm and truce. Fiction and poetry. its cold. All this is true. and little human looks it will be even noticed. the enthusiasm that she made hatch and throb. slave of the bitter and painful desire to live. rapture and joy are possible in this world. an hour of respite granted sparingly by the executioner to victims can be likened to a full pardon. a few minutes of rest and oblivion. truth and pathetic. tension. and that gives us the first argument necessary to the development of the thesis which this study continues the solution. soon resumed the top and revenge is still glowing. logical and compelling of its system of the universe and its general design world. a fleeting vision who faints at the moment when our hands. thousand times no. allows us to live so ardent rhythm and enjoy life with such intensity that the spell of Art would already suffice to justify the absolution of the world and life. prove us yet that other sources of happiness. That clarity and a rather childish. moral life. and love to the sense. according to the beautiful words of the great Shakespeare. better than anyone. to a conquest. It remains no less radically harmful. And a cordial revives the courage of the convicted person who is going to die or that a narcotic beverage grants to the poor who killed sleep. religious and mystical from the word. altruism. We will see the great pessimist conclude the dune possibility elicits more durable. Already. his visions of horror. And Art. the moralist and philosopher. appeasement and oblivion. the sublime and beneficent. The work and action of engineering are ephemeral and fragile. mean-spirited and hateful. it is short-lived. the divine illusion of Art allows us to escape for an hour to the dreadful yoke of reality. the Arts peaceful and forgiving human misery and. anxiety and anguish. effort and invincible aspiration toward an unknown goal. at the same time where the storm and darkness we envelop and overwhelm us from all sides? No.18 oblivion and the dream. the fundamental disagreement which exists between it and invincible selfishness all be living. of course. despite the charm. and the big question that rises from the beginning of a rational ethic. the efficient goodness and this ineffable sweetness that they spread in the wounded souls. one who proclaims the nothingness and fundamental to be cruelty . drunkenness what verse in our captive souls. once his anger calmed down. but the rays of the morning seem on the horizon. does not prove anything against the essential premise of pessimism. our universe is point forever nullify or cursed. aesthetics and sociology in which Schopenhauer develops his conception of the world and experience of life. that both chains were bruised. and worthy of the verdict without appeal that made the wise of all time and of all races. to the eternal question: is life worth living? Schopenhauer responds again with a negation of fierce.since being is that desire. supreme form of the faculty to feel life. However. tests and cruel pain. The hearing of the most perfect masterpiece eventually generate a sense of weariness. and that the effort is synonymous with pain. is not an arbitrary and artificial construction. as well as the light of a diamond hidden treasure of a miser radiates a discreet flame. irrefutable evidence reasoning yet. but a reality. the magic and the quivering beauty of the dream. . If the aesthetics of Schopenhauer is distinguished by numerous and striking beauties. the ecstasy of contemplation Faints. in spheres addressed of ethics and in the philosopher of The World as Will and Representation . Because of its intensity. so that it penetrates of ecstasy. That could answer us illustrated master himself. A review impartial moral pessimistic. it exhausts and fatigue soul who enjoys his favors. but the consequence. Divine illusion dissipates. In areas less fiery but more serene. life is not entirely bad and harmful. Rapid flashes of artistic emotion succeeds the pale dawn of eternal love. a nobility of accent. charity. The aesthetic emotion. a luminous wisdom that inspire a kind of admiration respectful. a moment in the dark prison of the cosmic existence. suffering. rapture and moved gratitude. the most sublime in this world. it's all dune deep psychological observation as most of the comments of morality. are preparing to grab it. require that ecstasy. ephemeral. But no one disputes this brevity and the fragility of the emotions aroused by the artistic genius.

The aesthetic joy is only a respite granted by the fatality to the burdened of weariness and suffering creatures. to a win fugitive and very brief. as Schopenhauer erected it in dazzling doctrine of strength. the transient joy whose art is the sacred source appear to us as to the facts of a undeniable truth metaphysical and psychic. its terrors and its darkness still reign over the world. ephemeral glow. yet well inexhaustible soil. obtained on the universal pain. the pathetic and delicious voluptuousness of the absolute glimpsed a moment in the intuition of perfect beauty.

One who acknowledged the identity of all human beings (and Celtic identity is obvious to Schopenhauer and his disciples. which between himself el the other the biggest difference and taking its individual for only real. completely separates one being from another. cosmic pessimism. it is necessary. While the orders of any other doctrine of morality. even the categorical imperative of Kant can be tracked if they get our assent to an act of faith. all the riches and all the illusions of this world which he made us understand the lie and nothingness. No moralist. in modern times nor in antiquity. Whatever the beauty of eloquence. cruel and poignant puzzle? But the monism of Arthur Schopenhauer. celebrated the benefits. and vulgar name provides to his elect. because if everything is that desire. What could therefore answer the admirable and candid Kant. and this problem is necessary for our consideration in any legal alternative. ethics of Schopenhauer is the consequence so logical and compelling conception of the world. so passionately and so painfully sought. we paint Bliss. well certainly. it seems impossible to refute the austere and sublime morality whose master command us the fulfillment and respect if one is unable to refute first and very victoriously all of his philosophy. cannot withstand the attacks of the most vulgar doubt. the diversity of human beings is only a mirage more in this world where all fainted). of all the virtues that lend a value and a supreme meaning to life with more conviction. Wonderful intuition of engineering! the focus of eternity really resonates in the voice of the great philosopher. Alfred Foullee wonders with anguish in one of the most beautiful chapters of this masterpiece called the Future of Metaphysics: the will. if not repeat an order whose categorical nature seems to lose more and more its arbitrary persuasion power and which require a leap of faith of the soul that he sanctifies. for the one who admits the system of Schopenhauer in his starting point and its inevitable developments. Remember the sublime lyrics in their simplicity which indicate point of view to which moves Schopenhauer. With the moral of Schopenhauer vanish the living hope and the possibility even a moral rational. sadness and the horrors of the eternal struggle between selfishness and duty. Indeed. In a Word. that it meets the polling that will. the greatest philosophical genius of modern times and the eternal time skeptic who do not find him even the notion of this Act of duty. able to modify. having never heard of the categorical imperative. Nothing like this to fear for the disciple of . the greatness. whose splendour moved to tears. ineffable appeasement than the science of good morals. can we sacrifice the subjective interest. If humanity nasty and unfortunate not heard advice from this inspired voice that seems to really tell us about the other shore. is the unselfishness possible. the opposition essential between selfishness and selflessness. the bottom of selfishness which in appearance is the very essence of the will? Practical conflict between your individuality and my individuality asserts itself at every step in a life and it is on the solution of the conflict that we can and that we must establish the idea of the good. there is more than to despair of his destiny and ultimate triumph of justice. finally aware of his slavery and its origin. to call it sacred. sacrifice. the most abstract metaphysical speculations than a Kant. loving or indifferent?

Is it selfishness or the love of neighbour which symbolizes truth as the ultimate bottom of the will? The question of morality is all whole el resides only in the solution that our doctrine of life brings. who has just set in a few lines the ancient and invincible problem of the moral law. fades and disappears in theory. force persuasive and engineering. illustrated by thinker of Pure reason?
