Über die Weiber

Über die Weiber by Arthur Schopenhauer
By: (1788-1860)

Arthur Schopenhauer's "Über die Weiber" is a thought-provoking and controversial exploration of the nature of women. In this collection of essays, Schopenhauer presents his views on the role of women in society, their intellectual capabilities, and their emotional nature.

While some may find Schopenhauer's views on women outdated and misogynistic, it is undeniable that his arguments are compelling and force the reader to confront their own beliefs about gender roles and stereotypes. The book is well-written and well-argued, and Schopenhauer's wit and sharp observations make for a compelling read.

However, it is important to approach this book with a critical eye and consider the historical context in which it was written. Schopenhauer's views on women were a product of his time, and should be read with an understanding of the societal norms and prejudices that shaped his thinking.

Overall, "Über die Weiber" is a challenging and thought-provoking read that will spark discussion and debate on the role of women in society. It is a book that will linger in the mind long after it is finished, and is well worth a read for anyone interested in philosophy, gender studies, or social commentary.

Book Description:

In diesem vielzitierten Essay aus dem Jahre 1851 ist Schopenhauers generell herablassende Einstellung zu Frauen zusammengefaßt. Frauen, laut Schopenhauer, sind Wesen zweiter Klasse mit weniger Vernunft als Maenner, und sind biologisch zu List und Intrige getrieben… Schopenhauers dominante Mutter Johanna, eine bekannte Schriftstellerin, wird oft als Ursache für die Frauenfeindlichkeit ihres Sohns genannt.
