Philosophy in an Hour: Schopenhauer

Schopenhauer: Philosophy in an Hour - Paul Strathern

Like other books in this series, this one is a solid introduction to ideas behind Schopenhauer's most known theory and focuses on the World as Will and Representation. Strathern does make reference to the issues that Schopenhauer later had with his early work but does not go into much detail about it - mostly due to the constraints imposed by the brevity of the book. 


Again another good introduction to a giant of Western philosophy (even though he did borrow heavily from Eastern concepts).
