“Let us hope for the propagation of truth & the abolition of error, in both hemispheres”


Important and highly influential German philosopher (1788–1860) best known for his often pessimistic works exploring the nature of reality, will, and desire. Exceptional AQS on a light blue 5.5 x 8.75 sheet, signed at the conclusion, “Arthur Schopenhauer, Frankfurt am Main, June 12th 1855.” Schopenhauer pens an optimistic philosophical quote. In full: “Let us hope for the propagation of truth & the abolition of error, in both hemispheres.” In fine condition, with a horizontal fold below all writing and a few light wrinkles. An extraordinarily influential philosopher, Schopenhauer’s ideas resonated with such diverse scientific and cultural figures as Charles Darwin, Gustav Mahler, Albert Einstein, and Dylan Thomas. Also extremely scarce in autographic material, this is just the third Schopenhauer we have offered in the last decade. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
