From the reviews of the first edition:"This is a book of many virtues and few vices ... The book reads well. It deserves to be well read ... surpass[es] all current English-language treatments of Schopenhauer" Schopenhauer-Jahrbuch
Philosophical Quarterly ambitious ... highly readable ... Magee moves with confidence and ability among the connecting structures of philosophy, the history of ideas, the arts, and human psychology.
Maggee's study should, however, not merely be reviewed but also read; for it is thorough, lucid and wide-ranging ... a substantial work." Times Higher Education Supplement
Wagner Bryan Magee's book is ... to be welcomed as the most illuminating and admirable study of Schopenhauer's philosophy yet to appear in English
Philosophy and Psychology He sets about the task of explaining Schopenhauer's ideas with a commitment and enthusiasm all too rare in philosophical writing, and succeeds admirably in communicating his excitement to the reader.
The Economist This is a wide-ranging book and Mr Magee's enthusiasm makes it stimulating.
