Summary

Schopenhauer's dissertation About the fourfold root of the principle of sufficient reason is the final act in the studies of the young philosopher. Schopenhauer enrolled at the medical faculty of the University of Göttingen in 1809, but decided very soon - also under the influence of the professor of metaphysics, empirical psychology and logic Gottlob Ernst Schulze (1761-1833) - for philosophy. In 1811 Schopenhauer decided to move to Berlin to attend lectures by Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762–1814), the top figure at the newly founded university in the Prussian capital.
