Summary

First proposed more than 200 years ago, Schopenhauer's extraordinarily prescient metaphysics - if understood along the lines thoroughly elucidated and substantiated in this volume - offer powerful answers not only to the paradoxes of quantum mechanics, but also to modern philosophical dilemmas such as the hard problem of consciousness - which plagues mainstream physicalism - and the subject combination problem - which plagues constitutive panpsychism. This invaluable treasure of the Western philosophical canon has eluded us so far because Schopenhauer's argument has been consistently misunderstood and misrepresented, even at the hands of presumed experts. Hoping to change this situation, Decoding Schopenhauer's Metaphysics offers a conceptual framework, a decoding key for unlocking the sense of Schopenhauer's metaphysical contentions in a way that renders them mutually consistent. With this key in mind, even those who earlier dismissed Schopenhauer's metaphysics should be able to return to it with fresh eyes and at last grasp its meaning. And for those as yet unacquainted with Schopenhauerian thought, this volume offers a succinct and accessible entry path.

A concise and erudite work of genius

At long last, after much struggle and frustration over Schopenhauer’s magnum opus, all is clear now. Many thanks to the author.

An intriguing take on an important philosophy

Bernardo Kastrup is the most important philosopher alive that I'm aware of. Here he deals with one of the most important philosophers and his metaphysics. Highly recommend.
