Note to the Third Edition.

As a third edition of this little volume is called for, I have taken the opportunity of adding two more Essays: the brief dialogue on The Failure of Philosophy, and some observations on The Metaphysics of Fine Art. The latter Essay is a rendering of such portions of a chapter in the original, entitled Zur Metaphysik des Schönen, as appear to be generally interesting and easily intelligible. The chief statement of Schopenhauer's view of Art is to be found in his large work; but as he gives a short essay in his Parerga, I have thought it well to include it in this selection.

The Prefatory Note to be found in the first and second editions of this volume is here omitted. It is now incorporated with the main Preface to the series in The Wisdom of Life.

T. B. S.

FEB., 1891.
