Art Book Summary Always be right
The Art of Always Being Right book has twenty-two chapters, including thirty-eight tricks to get rid of a competitor in verbal arguments.

In addition to strategies, Schopenhauer briefly teaches the reader how to use methods. Among the tricks that Schopenhauer ironically presents in this essay are: “Do not open your hand”, “confess by twisting the question”, “ask deviant questions”, “claim victory in spite of defeat”, “Cut him off, start his speech, divert the discussion,” “confront him with a bad argument,” “make him exaggerate,” “the will is more effective than reason and intelligence,” “to “Discuss the personal aspect, insult and slander.”

Schopenhauer’s philosophy in the book Art is always right
Schopenhauer does not believe in and even rejects the use of complex language to express philosophy. Schopenhauer’s language in art books is always right and fluent. He conveys his content in the most explicit and concise way possible to better understand the reader.

In his article on art, Schopenhauer always takes on the role of a sophist’s stereotype. Sophistry was a school of thought in ancient Greece that employed highly skilled people in various sciences at the time to counter any claim in order to win debates and views. At that time, the rulers and politicians of the Greek cities could only become famous if they had the ability to speak skillfully.

The sophists claimed to have the ability to educate government officials in eloquence and persuade the people, but this gradually led politicians and statesmen to use this technique to make things unfair, and this caused a great deal of controversy. The people change towards the rulers and cause the sophistry of the sophists.
The preface to The Book of Art always states that it is right: “Socrates and Plato had a negative view of the sophists and considered them to be people who, in return for receiving a reward and ignoring truth and justice, taught others how to correct every falsehood and every falsehood.” Show. So they hated sophistry in that sense. “Because they wanted to achieve goodness and truth.”

Schopenhauer, however, derives from Kant’s philosophy that “our knowledge of the world is limited to the knowledge of appearance rather than reality itself”; He followed, but unlike Kant, he believed that we could discover clues to reality from our own knowledge. Schopenhauer argued that the ultimate reality behind appearances is what we know as the “will,” and that whenever we do something voluntarily, that will is manifested in us.
Both in human nature and in the real world, the human will is self-centered, destructive, and unavoidable. Therefore, Schopenhauer believed that human beings also have worthless traits. One of the salient features of man is his stubbornness. People can not stand to look like they are failing, even when they feel they look stupider than their opponent. For this reason, they only value their own interests and victory, not reality.

Schopenhauer believes that man can think of a truth that is more useful to him, but with his ignorance he always insists that he is right. In response to the question of why man seeks only victory in controversy and ignores the truth, Schopenhauer says that man simply ignores the truth, and that this is “the natural instinct of human nature.”
People like to always win the debate, so they try to prove by word of mouth that they are right and do not give up, even if they realize by reason that they are not right, still the weakness of reason and the stubbornness of the will They support each other mutually. Ultimately, one does not back down in a controversial debate.

About Schopenhauer; The great German philosopher
Arthur Schopenhauer was born on February 22, 1788 in Poland. He was one of the great and influential German philosophers who carried out important intellectual activities in the field of ethics, art, modern psychology and contemporary literature. “Nothing bothered German thinkers as much as the dissimilarity between Schopenhauer and them,” said the famous philosopher Nietzsche about Schopenhauer.

Schopenhauer’s philosophy is to make people aware of facts and phenomena that are in front of everyone but no one pays attention to them. Schopenhauer does not believe in spirit and matter, and the existence of the universe alone is the point of his thought.

Inspired by great philosophers such as Kant and Plato, Schopenhauer published his most important work, The World as Will and Image, a major work in the history of philosophy, in 1818. This book was revised and completed in 1844.
From Schopenhauer the books “The World as Will and Image”, “On the Wisdom of Life”, “On the Nature of Man”, “Accessories and Supplements”, “The Art of Literature”, “The Two Fundamental Issues of Ethics”, “Ethics, Law and Politics” , “The Roots of the Four Principles of Sufficient Reason”, “The World and the Philosopher’s Reflections” and “Injurist Life” have been translated and published to date.
