Arthur 'Sloppy Schoppy' Schopenhauer was a pathetic bitch who dedicated his life to impotently seething at Hegel's numerous philsophic and sexual conquests, pigdog untermensch, utterly disgusting.

Not really, I don't commit to philosophers to the degree that I would call myself a Hegelian or any other kind of -ian, not saying I look down on those who do, I just can't find any good reason for it.
While my post was polemical, it's hard to deny the importance Kant has among philosophers, Schopenhauer doesn't get anywhere near his resonance. I think Nietzsche is a better, life-affirming version of him anyway.

The man's fealty to and ability to accrue to his own system were quite possibly at the level of Aristotle. The likes of Kant and Spinoza (for instance, and solely in reference to their ability to avoid damaging self contradiction) don't even come close. He doesn't have the "resonance" of Kant because he is ignored for having "problematic" opinions. Nietzsche is a negative sign in front of Schopenhauer: all self-contradiction, a labyrinth that ends where it began, a jester. Not that he's the worse for it, but to say he's Schopenhauer v2.0 is just misleading, despite the philosophical debt owed.

>all self-contradiction, a labyrinth that ends where it began, a jester
He wasn't trying to create a system, so it's not quite fair to fault him for this. Some like Foucault have taken example from his method and it has its advantages to overthrow yourself once a point of exhaustion has been reached.
He has a quote where he's saying that systems are disingenuous. Once you start building a system, you find yourself caught up in it, deeply committed and vulnerable to confirmation bias. I think that for Nietzsche, it was important to grow as a philosopher, moving with the course of life and being able to re-adapt.
A systemic view is like that of a bird's eye, in applying such a lens to Nietzsche, you find many contradictions and inconsistencies. But he was self-aware about not trying to harmonize it across time and there are still some consistent themes you can follow like a thread throughout his work.

>> No.12921044

>>12920937
I agree with all of that. That's why I said, "he's not the worse for it." Also why I said he was like Schopenhauer with a negative sign.

Schopenhauer says at the outset that his work is no more than a continuation of Kant's....

OP, have you actually read either?

Nevertheless he vaults a ton of critique against Kant. Gone are the times when people knew how to respect others without blind worship.

>> No.12921879

>>12921799
He critiques Kant but he says again and again he does so as a disciple, not an adversary. He sees it more as correcting errors and fallacies in reasoning while refining what is soumd.

Is Schopenhauer the only philosopher who could've made it as a novelist? His writing style is incredibly clear and fluid, the opposite of a typical full autismo treatise found in other thinkers.

Without trying to shill, I think he didn't get so much (philosophical) resonance because he simply finished that path of thinking. There is nothing much to critizise about his reasoning and all the consequences have already been laid out by himself.
He did influence many important figures of history but for philosophy to progress completely new approaches were chosen.
