Counsels and Maxims/Note
|←Table of contents||Counsels and Maxims by , translated by Thomas Bailey Saunders
For convenience of publication, I have divided this translation of Schopenhauer's Aphorismen zur Lebensweisheit into two parts; and for the sake of appearances, a new series of chapters has been begun in the present volume. But it should be understood that there is no such division in the original and that The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims form a single treatise, devoted to a popular exposition of the author's views on matters of practice. To the former volume I have prefixed some remarks which may help the reader to appreciate the value of Schopenhauer's teaching, and to determine its relation to certain well-known theories of life.
