After setting a wider framework which includes an account of the relationship between the two philosophical systems of Immanuel Kant and Arthur Schopenhauer, the paper deals with an array of serious and heavy objections and criticisms aimed at Kantian ethics, which are found primarily in Schopenhauer’s On the Basis of Morality and in the appendix to the first volume of The World as Will and Representation – “Criticism of Kantian philosophy”. By the means of careful reading of Schopenhauer, Kant and modern Schopenhauer’s interpreters and critics, the paper aims to elucidate, adequately formulate, examine and criticise these objections and criticisms, and to derive appropriate conclusions. Another aim of this paper is opening up a view upon Schopenhauer’s philosophy in general.
