This is a useful short book on Schopenhauer who was one of the real founders of the western new age movement three generations before its take off in the west. His framework is actually superior and more coherent than much of the yogic/buddhist cosmological metaphysics, at least in principle. We include a short quote from the Wicks book (he has another more general book on the same philosopher) on the basic connection with a subject such as the Upanishadic Advaita: it would be easy enough translate the (often confused) Advaita into the conceptual framework of Schopenhauer and Kant. The crooks passed off as gurus in India don't deserve the respect and allegiance of western seekers in the cases exploiting the lack of critical reason.
Time to take the legacy beyond India into a global sphere and abandon India to the revolution long overdue....

From the book: The Indian religious texts contain an amalgam of theistic and non-theistic passages, and if we consider the particular ideas that Schopenhauer extracted from them for citation in World as Will and Representation it is evident that the non-theistic ideas drew his attention. These include 1.the conviction that the ordinary world of trees, rocks, roads, and people is illusory, or dreamlike (Schopenhauer had already absorbed this idea from his readings of Plato, Kant, Shakespeare and Calderon),2.

It's a great book to get started, but be sure to pick the real book 'cause at some points it gets too general and misses some important ideas

This book is super handy for anyone wanting to work their way through Schopenhauer's The World as Will and Representation (WWR). Mainly because it addresses each section of the book and the author writes really well and clearly.
The sections at the beginning, outlining overviews of themes, background to Schopenhauer's work, and extra stuff like the books reception and influence all help lock in the general feel and help get an overall understanding that can easily be branched out in whatever direction suits.
There's some handy questions at the end of sections to remind you to remember the main points and check that you have been paying attention to the important stuff.

Definitely the most useful and direct addition to The World as Will and Representation I've found yet, and compliment the other literature well.

Nice one.
