"It is not all the evil but all the good things of the world which Pandora had in her box () When Epimetheus rashly opened the it the good things flew out and away: Hope alone was saved and still remains with us."The main treaty of this book ("On Religion: A Dialogue") is that most sacred form of philosophy, the Socratic dialogue, where two epitomes of philosophical arguments arrogantly disagree with each other with huge leaps of logic until the one the author dislikes surrenders in shame. As mu [...]
An interesting first encounter with Schopenhauer and in conclusion, another reading of this or a more complete work is needed.A deep and meaningful read that cannot be digested in one sitting.Looking forward to it!
This is a pocket-book collection of five essays, translated by R J Hollingdale in 1970. Penguin lazily provide no background information whatsoever, not even dates, let alone context, so I have no idea whether these were spread across decades of Schopenhauer's career or written all at one go.The first essay, "On Religion: A Dialogue", is the best, being a fair and shrewd discussion of the utility of religion. The next, "On Ethics", is perhaps the worst, packed with spurious claims and special pl [...]
The books is good, and here, I am reviewing the book rather than Schopenhauer as the book does very little to reflect the philosophical ideals and ideas, but I don't think it was meant to give an idea of what one of the biggest philosophers of the nineteen century. However, my little issue with it, despite being a good quotable book, is that the book doesn't give a view of how much of a pessimist he was. Anyhow, I am not sure what to do with a book like that beyond appreciate the composition of [...]
A fantastic collection, the first philosophy book I've fully enjoyed. Devastatingly enlightening, particularly the bits NOT about religion!
One hundred six pages of mental torture. I was not prepared for this. An extreme discussion on religion, ethics, psychology, and philosophy.
Schopenhauer outtakes. Won't get much other than stuff said in "The World as Will and Representation." I recommend reading that.
Pour moi ce livre est avant tout un fort plaidoyer pour la protection des animaux contre toute forme d'horreur et de souffrance!J'ai savouré le dialogue entre Démophèle (qui est pour la religion) et Philalèthe (qui est contre la religion) C'était très enrichissant.Après cette lecture j'ai juste envie de me plonger un peu plus dans le monde de la philosophie.
This volume opens with 'On Religion: A Dialogue' which discusses, alternately, the utility of religion and how it endangers rational thought. Although the points made on either side will be largely familiar to most readers, this constitutes the best portion of the book and is still an entertaining read that occasionally gives pause for thought with relevance to the modern world :-"Even if a real true philosophy had taken the place of religion, nine-tenths of mankind at the very least would recei [...]
It was an okay read. To be honest, I was rather disappointed with the book, as I thought it would deliver a short and precise argument against religion, which it does the first 10 pages, but sadly fails to do for the remaining 90+ pages. Often it just discussed the philosophy of enlightenment, instead of the absurdity and horrors of religions. Unless you have read extensively on the topic and need a new/other angle, then I would not recommend that you read this book. Instead, start with Dawkins' [...]
Small but mighty! Often amusing and enlightening, this is a fabulous series of short writings against religion and examines ethics too. Schopenhauer uses the words, ideas and beliefs of Kant, Herodotus, Ancient Greece, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and Islam, among others to make short and to the point comments about religious ideas and concepts that don't make sense or have been borrowed, or influenced by other religions.In some of the writings further on he considers belief and what leads in [...]
Not really a page-turner, or even very compelling. Not much to disagree with, however. Of interest to students of the Enlightenment, or those who have suffered (even if only psychologically), at the hands of dogmatic religions and their adherents. I'm interested in philosophy, but often, works by philosophers, such as this, are merely the collections of their random, unedited, and unstructured thoughts.
Some good thoughts from a man who learned from the ancients (and was an early student of Buddhism and Indian religions) but thought for himself.Random example, from a dialogue on religion - and I pick this one just because it's short, while some of his aphorisms are a little wordy: "in the eyes of the friend of truth every fraud, however pious, is still a fraud. A pack of lies would be a strange means of inducing virtue."Recommended.
This short collection of Schopenhauer's writings focusses on religion, but in a way that may be unfamiliar. Schopenhauer argues that religion is an allegory that cannot reveal it is an allegory. That somehow it uses falsehood to tell greater truths. He seems ambivalent towards religion, especially Christianity. Alternatively he defends it and condemns it. He appears to be too much a creature of his time to understand the full implications of his reasoning.
the funniest, and most negative, philosopher. makes nietzsche look like the dalai lama.he says reading alot makes one lose the capacity to think - "this is the case with many learned persons: they have read themselves stupid"
If you not read these arguments in other forms then this is an amusing little book. Otherwise it's only OK.

I have second-hand knowledge of Schopenhauer's "the will to live is consecrated in the act of procreation" thesis, and while it makes a brief appearance, much of this collection is focused on religion. The "On Various Subjects" section reads a little like La Rochefoucauld's Maxims, and makes some interesting assertions about genius (it is OK to make mistakes, just your masterpiece ought to be inimitable); on the farcical nature of higher education (perception must precede concept, not the other [...]
It's amazing how similar Schopenhauer's arguments in favor and against religion are to the arguments one hears today. The first section of the book, a long dialogue between two educated individuals, an atheist and a theist, could easily be misconstrued for a conversation between Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson. Unfortunately Schopenhauer's biases make this collection somewhat unbearable. He is arrogant, makes scoping claims, and bases much of his information on false premises. I was particularly [...]
"Già solo il presentarsi come verità rivelata è il marchio dell’inganno, e costituisce, per uno che pensi, una sollecitazione all’ostilità." (p. 49)
Some essays are great, some are meh.
Schopenhauer (I had to google it to learn how to pronounce it at first hah!) was one of the philosophers I picked up when I read What Would Nietzsche Do?: How the greatest philosophers would solve your everyday problems. He had one of more unique/interesting personalities portrayed in the book-- that is as someone who is more likely to always exhibit negativity or pessimism, so I was curious to read some of his works. Overall, I liked this one. He did have a distinct perspective on things that c [...]
Amazingly readable, given it was almost 200 years ago. Some insightful arguments against religion.
