Research-relevant information: essay collection, literature and database


There is an extensive collection of non-independent literature, i.e. articles published in journals, anthologies and collection of essays on Schopenhauer’s person and work from the estate of Rudolf Malter.

In addition to the Schopenhauer Archive of the City and University Library of Frankfurt am Main, it is one of the main focuses of the work of the Schopenhauer-Research Center to complete and archive this collection.

You can find the essay collection here.

You can find an overview of the newer literature about Schopenhauer here.


The database for the processed files of the Schopenhauer Society is accessible via the internet.

As there are still difficulties in contemplating the Hessian databases, you can access the page of the Archive Centre of the University of Frankfurt here, where you will find help on how to use HADIS.
