Si Arthur Schopenhauer (22 Pebrero 1788 – 21 Setyembre 1860) ay isang pilosopong Aleman na kilala sa kanyang aklat na Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung(Ang Daigdig bilang Kalooban at Representasyon) kung saan ay inangkin niyang ang daigdig ay pinapatakbo ng isang patuloy na hindi nasasapatang kalooban na patuloy na naghahanap ng satispaksiyon. Siya ay naimpluwensiyahan ng pananaw na Silanganin at kanyang inahayag na "ang katotohanan ay nakilala ng mga pantas ng India".[3] Ang kanyang mga solusyon sa pagdurusa ay katulad ng mga taga-isip na Vedantiko at Budista (i.e. asetisismo) at ang kanyang pananampalataya sa "transendental na idealidad" [4] ay nagtulak sa kanyang tumanggap sa ateismo[5][6][7][8] at nag-aral mula sa pilospiyang Kristiyano.[9][10][11]

Sa edad na 25, kanyang inilimbag ang kanyang doktoral na disertasyong Über die vierfache Wurzel des Satzes vom zureichenden Grunde(Tungkol sa Makaapat na Ugat ng Prinsipyo ng Sapat na Katwiran) kung saan ay siniyasat niya ang apat na mga natatanging aspeto[12] ng karanasan sa phenomenal na daigdig. Dahil dito, siya ay naging maimpluwensiya (influential) sa kasaysayan ng phenomenolohiya. Siya ay nakaimpluwensiya sa isang mahabang talaan ng mga taga-isip kabilang si Friedrich Nietzsche,[13] Richard Wagner, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Erwin Schrödinger, Albert Einstein,[14] Sigmund Freud, Otto Rank, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Leo Tolstoy, Thomas Mann, at Jorge Luis Borges.

"It is easy to find many of the underpinnings of Schopenhauer's doctrine of the denial of the will to live in the Theologia Germanica, but only if one is willing to gainsay the anonymous author's theism and Schopenhauer's atheism."

"For Kant, the mathematical sublime, as seen for example in the starry heavens, suggests to imagination the infinite, which in turn leads by subtle turns of contemplation to the concept of God. Schopenhauer's atheism will have none of this, and he rightly observes that despite adopting Kant's distinction between the dynamical and mathematical sublime, his theory of the sublime, making reference to the struggles and sufferings of struggles and sufferings of Will, is unlike Kant's."

  14. Albert Einstein in Mein Glaubensbekenntnis (Agosto 1932): "I do not believe in free will. Schopenhauer's words: 'Man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wants,[Der Mensch kann wohl tun, was er will, aber er kann nicht wollen, was er will]' accompany me in all situations throughout my life and reconcile me with the actions of others, even if they are rather painful to me. This awareness of the lack of free will keeps me from taking myself and my fellow men too seriously as acting and deciding individuals, and from losing my temper." Schopenhauer's clearer, actual words were: "You can do what you will, but in any given moment of your life you can will only one definite thing and absolutely nothing other than that one thing."
