Scan errors[edit]

This Wikibook contains countless scanning errors. The errors make it almost impossible to make sense of On the Will in Nature. Therefore, I am going through it and trying to correct all errors. If anyone disagrees with my corrections, please join in. If any corrections are contested, there should always be a good reason for the opposition.

Wagner & Buddhism[edit]

Richard Wagner read the "Sinology" chapter and used Schopenhauer's long footnote (on p. 361) to locate books that were suitable for auto–didactically learning about Buddhism. This had a strong influence on his final opera Parsifal.Lestrade (talk) 03:42, 16 October 2008 (UTC)Lestrade

The Quotable Schop[edit]

In the "Sinology" chapter, p. 370, we also find one of his most noted quotes: For there are three well-known modes of repelling the attack of new thoughts: firstly, by ignoring them, secondly by denying them, and lastly by asserting that they are not new, but were known long before.Lestrade (talk) 17:47, 17 October 2008 (UTC)Lestrade
