"Janaway provides a detailed and critical account of Schopenhauer's central philosophical achievement: his account of the self and its relation to the world of objects. The author's approach to this theme is historical, yet is designed to show the philosophical interest of such an approach. He explores in unusual depth Schopenhauer's often ambivalent relation to Kant, and highlights the influence of Schopenhauer's view of self and world on Wittgenstein and Nietzsche, as well as tracing the many points of contact between Schopenhauer's thought and current philosophical debates about the self." -- with a bonus offer ., Oxford Univ Press, 1989, Williston, Vermont, U.S.A.: Blackwell Publishing.

Prades was born in Valencia, Spain in 1954. He taught philosophy at the University of Murcia and is presently a lecturer at the University of Girona. He has published several studies of Wittgenstein's philosophy and papers on the philosophy of mind and epistemology. -- * * REVIEW: This study is written by authors completely oblivious to the fundamental arguments concerning causality, agency and the historical foundations of their subject. Is it possible to ignore the investigations of Plato, Berkeley, Hume and Kant and have a meaningful discussion of the problem of minds, causes and mechanisms, not to mention its "solution"? If you think so, then this is just the right ticket for you. In that event, you'll find it meaningful to conclude that "mental contents, as opposed to functional properties, may be causally efficacious without having an implementing mechanism." Schopenhauer--where are you when we need you? -- with a bonus offer ., Blackwell Publishing, 1999
