Beautifully produced book on the work of German philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer. From the Door of Perception review by Ben Roth: "The concept of death is a fundamental subject of Arthur Schopenhauer’s philosophy that is deeply inspired by Vedantic and Buddhist thinkers. "Über den Tod"(On Death) ... contains chapter 41 of his major work "The World as Will and Representation". Schopenhauer interprets death as the aim and purpose of life and the origin of all philosophy. He maintains that to live is to suffer, that the triumph of death is inevitable, and that existence is a constant dying." Published in Grafenhainichen, Germany in the late 1800s - early 1900s.
