Example text

Of space and time. Janaway is also right to emphasise the Platonic distinction of will-bound versus will-free modes of apprehending the world in Schopenhauer’s theory. 12 Schopenhauer also often deplores the connection of the mind with the body. Although Janaway is right that there is at least ‘one drastic divergence from Plato that we cannot ignore’,13 namely that in Schopenhauer’s account the Ideas are revealed by artworks in aesthetic experience, there are also more relevant similarities with Plato’s philosophy of art than Janaway (and Schopenhauer himself) allows.

10 This appears to be a revision of his earlier hypothesis that the capacity for apprehension of the Ideas depends on superfluity of intellect—or at any rate an elaboration of what superfluity consists in. 11 Had he adopted this line of thought, his account of genius would of course have turned out slightly differently: on this line, the genius constitutes an ‘exception’ not (as Schopenhauer in fact suggests) simply in virtue of having the capacity for apprehension of the Ideas, but rather in virtue of the degree to which he has this capacity (the degree to which the two parts of the nervous system are separate in him).
