The Art of Happiness

The Art of Happiness
Arthur Schopenhauer

"What a man has for himself, what accompanies him into solitude, and no one can give or take from him: this is much more essential than anything he possesses, or what he is in the eyes of others."

Arthur Schopenhauer's handbook The Art of Happiness is a real gem that has remained unpublished for over 150 years. The fifty rules of life of which it consists are found in various volumes and bundles of the estate. Franco Volpi reconstructed the Rules of Life according to Schopenhauer's own plan and published them for the first time.
