Representing Arthur Schopenhauer

He’s known as the philosopher of pessimism, and he has a remarkably cheerless view of the nature of reality, but he’s also a poetic writer who advocates compassion and loves art. Grant Bartley from Philosophy Now finds out about Arthur Schopenhauer from Christopher Janaway of the University of Southampton and Daniel Came of St Hugh’s College, Oxford. Live music is provided by Ruth Merry. First broadcast on 28 February 2012 on Resonance FM.
