Translation of Arthur Schopenhauer's "The Two Fundamental Problems of Ethics" and "On the Fourfold Root and Other Writings"

Translation of four works of Schopenhauer to be published in two volumes. (24 months)

This project is a translation of four books by Arthur Schopenhauer, Die beiden Grundprobleme der Ethik (1841), Uber die vierfache Wurzel des Satzes vom zureichenden Grunde (1847), Uber das Sehn und die Farben (1854), and Uber den Willen in der Natur (1854), each necessary for the understanding of Schopenhauer's philosophy and intellectual development. Because Schopenhauer's works have influenced major figures in psychology, sociology, music, literature, and philosophy, these new translations will provide reliable and useful texts for students and scholars alike. These translations will be available through Oxford and Cambridge University Presses.
