In September, Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860) was featured as the Philosopher of the Month. Schopenhauer was largely ignored by the academic philosophical community during his lifetime, but gained recognition and fame posthumously.

Schopenhauer was best known for his work, The World as Will and Representation, which he published in 1818.
