This Article first delves briefly into Schopenhauer's life story. Then Schopenhauer's place in the line of Western philosophers is examined, particularly his positioning with respect to Kant and Hegel. Then follows an inquiry into the metaphysical bases of Schopenhauer's theory of justice, the theory of justice proper, and a discussion of some of its implications for the human condition. Interspersed throughout are analyses of the relationships between Schopenhauer's thought and contemporary quantum physics on the one hand, and Eastern philosophical approaches and understandings on the other. Because Schopenhauer's theory of justice is an ontology, there is a need throughout much of this Article to examine Schopenhauer's metaphysics proper.
