Schopenhauer’s Ethics and the Concept of Behavioral Self-Regulation

  • Wolfgang Tunner
Part of the The Plenum Series in Behavioral Psychophysiology and Medicine book series (SSBP)


I would like to talk to you about philosophy, but by “philosophy” I mean the metaphysics of philosophy. Metaphysics is the core of philosophy. The content of metaphysics cannot be comprehended by the human mind. The great philosophers speak of the incomprehensible. It is the unspeakable for which language lacks the word of proof.
