Reply to a Lecture on Happiness Given by Professor Ostwald
Schopenhauer prefaces his critique of Kantian philosophy by an introduction in which he declares he must begin by expressing once and for all his great admiration for Kant, so that for brevity’s sake he might afterwards confine himself to discussing what seems defective to him without constantly interrupting the argument by reaffirming his admiration and emphasizing the many excellent things that Kant discusses along with the seemingly incorrect material. I shall adopt the same procedure here, by first expressing my personal thanks to Prof. Ostwald for the great pleasure and intellectual inspiration that I have derived from his many-sided, profound and0020original writings and lectures, but then addressing myself without further ado exclusively to those parts with which I disagree.
