An Approach to the Sacred in the thought of Schopenauer
1992 0-7734-9818-4
The purpose of this study is to systematically determine whether the question of the Sacred has any relevance in Schopenhauer's analysis of the human condition. In light of his metaphysical and anthropological claims, this study proposes that the question of the Sacred remains open given certain "unanswerables" to which Schopenhauer himself alludes in his treatment of the denial of the will-to-live, as specifically manifested in aesthetical and ethical praxis.
