Arthur Schopenhauer


German philosopher and writer known for his fine prose style and pessimistic philosophies. Born into a wealthy family, he was educated at the universities of Gottingen, Berlin and Jena, receiving his Ph.D. in 1813. From there he settled in Frankfurt am Main where he led a solitary life and became deeply involved in the study of Buddhist and Hindu philosophies and mysticism. His philosophy was atheistic but influenced by Eastern thought; he was, as well, a misogynist, never marrying and discouraging any friendships. His main work was, "The World as Will and Idea" in 1819.

His dad committed suicide on 20 April 1805.

Schopenhauer died of heart failure on 21 September 1860 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He was 72.
