4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By G. Charles Steiner TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 27, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
I read "The World as Will and Representation" in my forties, in addition to "The Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason" as well as compilations from "Parerga & Paralipomena." I read many books about Schopenhauer, too, including Safransky's "Schopenhauer and the Wild Years of Philosophy," Wallace's "Life of Arthur Schopenhauer," and even philosophical investigations into the man's philosophy by other philosophers, like the works by John E. Atwell (happily referenced in the book) such as "Schopenhauer: The Human Character" and "On the Character of the World: The Metaphysics of Will." I read Bryan Magee's "The Philosophy of Schopenhauer."

Therefore, I felt I had a pretty good grasp of Schopenhauer the man and Schopenhauer the philosopher. I was totally able to get Irvin D. Yalom's portrayal of Schopenhauer in his novel "Schopenhauer's Cure" when it was published 15 years after I first read Schopenhauer's magnum opus, and I felt I had understood pretty much all that there was to know about this difficult individual and humane philosopher.

Hell, no!

Peter B. Lewis brings out so much information about Schopenhauer's personal life in this book, I feel that my earlier picture of the man has been almost completely false. Peter Lewis goes into such details about Schopenhauer's affairs with women and one woman in particular, with whom he had an affair for over ten years, I could only gasp mentally at my miscomprehension of the man I only thought I knew. Who woulda thunk?!!!
