Parerga und Paralipomena | Open LibraryParerga and Paralipomena Greek for "Appendices" and "Omissions", respectively; German : Parerga und Paralipomena is a collection of philosophical reflections by Arthur Schopenhauer published in The collection is divided into two volumes, covering first the parerga and thereafter the paralipomena to that philosophy. The parerga are six extended essays intended as supplementary to the author's thought. The paralipomena , short ruminations divided by topic into thirty-one subheadings, cover material hitherto unaddressed by the philosopher but deemed by him to be complementary to the parerga. In light of the unenthusiastic reception of the philosopher's earlier publications, publishers were reluctant to commit to this, his last major work.
