Description

"German Philosophers" contains studies of four of the most important German theorists: Kant, arguably the most influential modern philosopher; Hegel, whose philosophy inspired a vision of a communist society that for more than a hundred years enlivened revolutionary movements around the world; Schopenhauer, renowned for his pessimistic view that for the human individual non-existence would be preferable; and Nietzsche, who has been appropriated as an icon by an astonishingly diverse spectrum of people.show more
