The Metaphysical Vision: Arthur Schopenhauer’s Philosophy of Art and Life and Samuel Beckett’s Own Way to Make Use of It expands upon the ideas and theories set forth in the author’s Die eigentlich metaphysische Tätigkeit: Über Schopenhauers Ästhetik und ihre Anwendung durch Samuel Beckett, published (in German) in 1982 and hailed by Catharina Wulf in her book The Imperative of Narration (1997) as an «excellent study» and «the most thorough enquiry into Beckett and Schopenhauer.» In the last years of the twentieth century, new documents regarding Samuel Beckett’s reading and thinking, especially important notebooks and letters, have become accessible to scholars. These documents show much more clearly than could ever be demonstrated previously that Beckett had a strong, lifelong interest in Schopenhauer’s philosophy. There is no other philosopher to whom Beckett refers more often in his personal comments throughout the years of his writing up to his seventies; no other philosopher whose view of life and the world comes closer to the image of human existence we find in Samuel Beckett’s literary work. The striking similarity in matters of world view and human life, and especially the evidence obtained from Beckett’s previously unknown notebooks and letters, call for a close systematic study of the Beckett-Schopenhauer relationship. Due to its comprehensiveness and in-depth approach, The Metaphysical Vision is, and will be for many years to come, what its forerunner was for more than two decades: the most thorough enquiry into Beckett and Schopenhauer.

Ulrich Pothast's aesthetic critique of Beckett is none other than a rendition of Shopenhauer's influence on the author of Waiting for Godot. It is important to note here that Pothast reads the existential angst of Beckett within the bounds of his appropriation of Shopenhauer. The Metaphysical Vision quite simply describes how Sameul Beckett writes from a metaphysical standpoint, whereby life is put under the spell of art to disenchant and disillusion. The book reads with a simplicity and a purpose that is direct and lucid which allows for a clear portrait of the relationship between the philosopher and the writer. There has been an excess of publications on Beckett, both formalist and philosophical in nature, but none are better in laying bare the nucleus of Beckett's art. If this critical piece expounds on the debt of Beckett to Shopenhauer it does not leave the reader to think that the translation was absolute; rather Pothast scants on the diviations and evolution of Beckett's art in reference to it, and it all ramifies within a range of ideas that are informed by and through Shopenhauer's lifeview and his aesthetic of tragedy. Beckett's image of man and his nature is exemplified by Shopenhaur's pessimism and the many references that have resurfaced of recent on this relationship readily unfold within the book. Beckett's thoughts on suicide, the meaning - or lack thereof - of life, the trivialities of the vulgar and the mundane, the reason for laughter, and the expiation from suffering and death, are all dealt with in subtance and with unpretentious erudition by the critic, who in turn also completes the study by offering a detailed reading of several plays and Beckett's prose trilogy. John Calder's "The Philosophy of Samuel Beckett", Lance Butler's "Samuel Beckett and the Meaning of Being" and Richard Lane's "Beckett and Philosophy" descant profusely on the relationship between the Irish and the German, but none do it in a manner that is of such clarity that it makes the chaos of Beckett the incarnation of his philosophical credo. Beckett's philosophy assumed its shape and vision through his reading of the author of "The Will and the Idea" and Ulrich Pothast defines this engagement and negotiation with enviable simplicity in a thorough and focused critical expose'. It will be well-serving to all readers and scholars of Beckett.

The infuence of Schopenhauer has been massive, yet often unappreciated. From Wagner, to Nietzsche, and Freud, or Heidegger and Wittgenstein, the brilliance of Schopenhauer's clarity of vision has echoed in the age period in his wake. This fascinating book is both an excellent brief introduction to Schopenhauer's thought, and a demonstration of his influence on Beckett (and Proust). Schopenhauer's aesthetics is such a compelling arrow to the heart of the matter that it has inspired artists across a whole spectrum to put the philosophical question into high gear in a kind of stilling of thoughts, as the visionary impulse comes to the fore.
Engaging and highy readable introduction to both the philosopher and the artist.
