L Art d avoir toujours raison suivi de La lecture et les livres et Penseurs personnels
Vous avez tort mais refusez de l’admettre ? Avec perspicacité et humour, ce petit précis recense et analyse stratagèmes et ruses pour sortir vainqueur de tout débat, dispute ou joute verbale. Pour le plaisir des amoureux de la contradiction, Schopenhauer se livre à une savoureuse réflexion sur le langage et la dialectique.Ces précieux conseils, sarcastiques, sont suivis de deux essais tout aussi incisifs sur la pensée et la lecture : les livres nourrissent-ils notre réflexion ou nous empêchent-ils de penser par nous-mêmes ?

Essays of Schopenhauer
Although everything that Schopenhauer wrote was written more or less asevidence to support his main philosophical thesis, his unifyingphilosophical principle, the essays in this volume have an interest, ifnot altogether apart, at least of a sufficiently independent interest toenable them to be considered on their own merits, without relation tohis main idea.

Written only shortly before his death, Eureka is considered by many to be Poe’s masterpiece and the key to unlocking his entire writings. Its significance, in both literary and scientific worlds, cannot be underestimated. Turning his immense intellect and remarkable artistic flair to the most challenging concepts of all—that of the creation of the world, its continued existence, and its ultimate end—Poe has created a truly extraordinary work. In his strange blend of poetry and scientific treaty, fact and frenzied speculation, he displays amazing foresight, anticipating some of the key scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
William Shakespeare was born at Stratford-on-Avon, in a house under the tiles of which was concealed a profession of the Catholic faith beginning with these words, "I, John Shakespeare." John was the father of William. The house, situate in Henley Street, was humble; the chamber in which Shakespeare came into the world, wretched,—the walls whitewashed, the black rafters laid crosswise; at the farther end a tolerably large window with two small panes, where you may read to-day, among other names, that of Walter Scott. This poor lodging sheltered a decayed family. The father of William Shakespeare had been alderman; his grand-father had been bailiff. Shakespeare signifies "shake-lance;" the family had for coat-of-arms an arm holding a lance,—allusive arms, which were confirmed, they say, by Queen Elizabeth in 1595, and apparent, at the time we write, on Shakespeare's tomb in the church of Stratford-on-Avon. There is little agreement on the orthography of the word Shake-speare, as a family name; it is written variously,—Shakspere, Shakespere, Shakespeare, Shakspeare. In the eighteenth century it was habitually written Shakespear; the actual translator has adopted the spelling Shakespeare, as the only true method, and gives for it unanswerable reasons. The only objection that can be made is that Shakspeare is more easily pronounced than Shakespeare, that cutting off the e mute is perhaps useful, and that for their own sake, and in the interests of literary currency, posterity has, as regards surnames, a claim to euphony. It is evident, for example, that in French poetry the orthography Shakspeare is necessary. However, in prose, and convinced by the translator, we write Shakespeare. 2. The Shakespeare family had some original draw-back, probably its Catholicism, which caused it to fall. A little after the birth of William, Alderman Shakespeare was no more than "butcher John." William Shakespeare made his début in a slaughter-house. At fifteen years of age, with sleeves tucked up, in his father's shambles, he killed the sheep and calves "pompously," says Aubrey. At eighteen he married. Between the days of the slaughter-house and the marriage he composed a quatrain. This quatrain, directed against the neighbouring villages, is his début in poetry. He there says that Hillbrough is illustrious for its ghosts and Bidford for its drunken fellows. He made this quatrain (being tipsy himself), in the open air, under an apple-tree still celebrated in the country in consequence of this Midsummer Night's Dream. In this night and in this dream where there were lads and lasses, in this drunken fit, and under this apple-tree, he discovered that Anne Hathaway was a pretty girl. The wedding followed. He espoused this Anne Hathaway, older than himself by eight years, had a daughter by her, then twins, boy and girl, and left her; and this wife, vanished from Shakespeare's life, appears again only in his will, where he leaves her the worst of his two beds, "having probably," says a biographer, "employed the best with others." Shakespeare, like La Fontaine, did but sip at a married life. His wife put aside, he was a schoolmaster, then clerk to an attorney, then a poacher. This poaching has been made use of since then to justify the statement that Shakespeare had been a thief. One day he was caught poaching in Sir Thomas Lucy's park. They threw him in prison; they commenced proceedings. These being spitefully followed up, he saved himself by flight to London. In order to gain a livelihood, he sought to take care of horses at the doors of the theatres. Plautus had turned a millstone. This business of taking care of horses at the doors existed in London in the last century, and it formed then a kind of small band or corps that they called "Shakespeare's boys."
Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." First published in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward.
