BAQUEDANO, Sandra. ¿VOLUNTAD DE VIVIR O VOLUNTAD DE MORIR?: EL SUICIDIO EN SCHOPENHAUER Y MAINLÁNDER. Rev. filos. [online]. 2007, vol.63, pp. 117-126. ISSN 0718-4360. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-43602007000100009.
The will to live is usually stronger than all of the misery in the world, and although many consider that life is not worth living, only a few commit suicide. This is due to the fact that wanting to live does not imply more than living life. From this fact springs forth what we will talk about and question in this article, the essential of wanting, in light of the will to live and the will to die. Is that what we want really life or do we simply live to liberate ourselves from it?
