One of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, Schopenhauer (1788-1860) believed that human action is determined not by reason but by 'will' - the blind and irrational desire for physical existence. This selection of his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women, suicide, books and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last work, Parerga and Paralipomena, which he published in 1851. These pieces depict humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil, and each individual absolutely free within a Godless world, in which art, morality and self-awareness are our only salvation. This innovative - and pessimistic - view has proved powerfully influential upon philosophy and art, directly affecting the work of Nietzsche, Wittgenstein and Wagner among others.

The writings of Emile Benoit are primarily works of moral, cultural, and religious criticism which attempt to find meaning in a world that seems completely devoid of it, and in a manner which relies on revelatory aphorisms rather than narrative deduction to make its argument. We all have been searching for meaning in our lives for as long as we have been alive. Yet, philosophy, religion, art, and politics have failed to provide us with answers to our many questions about our own personal existence. They've become, instead, institutions for profit, dogmatism, entertainment, or petty equivocation. Benoit addresses the issues that used to be of utmost importance to scholars and laymen alike: The answer to the question of how we should best live our lives.

""'Heart-Shaped Leaves' is a wry and witty collection of aphorisms and observations. It's a unique compilation, somewhat like W. H. Auden's 'Commonplace Book'..."" David Damrosch Ernest Bernbaum Professor and Chair, Department of Comparative Literature Harvard University ""This little book 'Heart-Shaped Leaves' is not an academic work but the work of a man who looks at literature with a loving eye. Prof. Khalilli's commentaries and thoughts, some profound some less so, demonstrate his love of literature. He has collected his thoughts over many years of study but has never before committed them to paper."" Dr.F. Alexander Magill Ege University, Izmir.Turkey
