Richard Aquila, a professor in the Department of Philosophy, has just finished the second volume of The World as Will and Presentation, a translation of Arthur Schopenhauer’s Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung. The first volume was published in 2007. Schopenhauer is one of the major figures in nineteenth-century philosophy and this is his magnum opus, which was badly in need of a new translation. Aquila is an internationally recognized Kant, Schopenhauer, and Sartre scholar; he was a Distinguished Professor of Humanities from 1987 to 1997. He has published six books and 44 other journal articles and book chapters.
