He also studied at Weimar where he lived with his mother until he became estranged from her.
Schopenhauer’s ideas had the unique ability to influence not only philosophy but many other fields of human endeavour and expression.
Within philosophy itself, Schopenhauer never founded a school of thought “per se”, but his influence instead was in stimulating other philosophers towards a particular line of thought, which varied with the individual and his or her response to Schopenhauer’s writing.
He was also an independent minded man who moved his family from the city of Danzig when it was taken over by Prussia in 1793. Schopenhauer left to visit England and other countries, on the understanding that when he completed his tour, he would begin work in a business.
Schopenhauer, then 16 years old, kept his promise but he had no attraction to business and when his father died, he got consent from his mother to continue his studies.
