So, therefore, was his life. One may suspect, in other words, that for most of the 1820s Schopenhauer inhabited every creative writer’s greatest nightmare – the thought that he had nothing more to say. Thus 1825 find him attempting (unsuccessfully) to establish himself as a translator of other people’s works – an indication that he had nothing of his own left to say but wished, nonetheless, to continue with the motions of writing. The previous year Schopenhauer had recorded in his pocket book the following: ‘to recognise [give a name to] the thing in itself is a contradiction, because all cognition is [mind-processed] representation, whereas the thing in itself means the thing to the extent it is not’ (MR 3: 195).

He urgently needs something over and above what is to be found in Kant. REALISM AS SELF-CONTRADICTORY The first sentence of the main work is: ‘The world is my representation’. This, as we may take it, statement of radical idealism is, says Schopenhauer, a truth so certain that it needs no proof (WR I: 3). This odd claim – odd, since radical idealism is so contrary to common sense – is illuminated in the second volume as follows: ‘The world is my representation’ is, like the axioms of Euclid, a proposition which everyone must recognise as true as soon as he understands it, although it is not a proposition that everyone understands as soon as he hears it (WR II: 3).

Surely, one might point out, the world as we experience it might both be a brain-construct and also correspond to the way reality in itself actually is. And in fact, one might continue, doesn’t our evolutionary success suggest that this is no mere possibility but is actually the truth of the matter? Surely creatures whose representations of the world were habitually at variance with the way it actually is would have (to borrow W. V. Quine’s memorable words) ‘the pathetic but praiseworthy habit of dying out before reproducing their kind’?
