English to Finnish: Arthur Schopenhauer's theory of "The Will"
General field: Science
Source text - English
A key focus of Schopenhauer was his investigation of individual motivation. Before Schopenhauer, Hegel had popularized the concept of Zeitgeist, the idea that society consisted of a collective consciousness which moved in a distinct direction, dictating the actions of its members. Schopenhauer, a reader of both Kant and Hegel, criticized their logical optimism and the belief that individual morality could be determined by society and reason. Schopenhauer believed that humans were motivated by only their own basic desires, or Wille zum Leben ("Will to Live"), which directed all of mankind.[27]
Translation - Finnish
Arthur Schopenhauerin teoria "elämisen tahdosta".

Yksi keskeisin aihe Schopenhauerin tutkimuksissa oli ihmisten henkilökohtainen motivaatio. Ennen Schopenhaueria Hegel oli tuonut julkisuuteen käsityksen "ajan hengestä" (Zeitgeist) : idea kollektiivisesta tietoisuudesta, joka liikkuu ennalta määrättyyn suuntaan, vaikuttaen siihen kuuluvien yksilöiden tekoihin. Schopenhauer, joka oli ottanut vaikutteita sekä Kantista että Hegelistä, oli kriittinen heidän loogisesta optimismista ja uskosta siihen, että henkilökohtaiset moraalikäsitykset voitaisiin määrittää yhteiskunnan ja järjen avulla. Schopenhauer uskoi ihmisten motivaation johtuvan vain heidän omista haluista ja tarpeistaan, "Wille zum Leben" eli tahto elää, joka näin ohjailisi koko ihmiskuntaa.

I am a young (25) freelancer from Finland. I have an upper secondary school degree. I graduated magna cum laude, but my english was eximia. After that I graduated from theatre makeup school, where we did a lot of work in many art and media related projects. Communication was always in Finnish and English.
I am a painter, so I am familiar with the art world. I am also a musician (electronic and acoustic), so I use a lot of electronic equipment on daily basis.
I have also studied some advanced and quantum physics, so that wouldn't be a problem either.
But you can challenge me with everything.
Let me know if you need my services.
