Arthur Schopenhauer, “The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument”


Schopenhauer’s stratagems in his famous sarcastic treatise


The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (also The Art of Controversy, or Eristic Dialectic: The Art of Winning an Argument) is an acidulous, sarcastic treatise. The author examines a total of thirty-eight methods of defeating one’s opponent in a debate. He introduces his essay with the idea that philosophers have concentrated in ample measure on the rules of logic, but have not (especially since the time of Immanuel Kant) engaged with the darker art of the dialectic, of controversy.


Translated by Thomas Bailey Saunders (1896).


Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), often called the “philosopher of pessimism,” was primarily important as the exponent of a metaphysical doctrine of the will in immediate reaction against Hegelian idealism. His writings influenced later existential philosophy and Freudian psychology.
