The World As Will and Idea by Arthur Schopenhauer (22 February 1788 - 21 September 1860) . Translated by R. B. Haldane & J. Kemp ( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-world-as-will-and-idea-volume-1-by-arthur-schopenhauer/

Quote:
Schopenhauer used the word "will" as a human's most familiar designation for the concept that can also be signified by other words such as "desire," "striving," "wanting," "effort," and "urging." Schopenhauer's philosophy holds that all nature, including man, is the expression of an insatiable will to life. It is through the will that mankind finds all their suffering. Desire for more is what causes this suffering.He used the word representation (Vorstellung) to signify the mental idea or image of any object that is experienced as being external to the mind. It is sometimes translated as idea or presentation. This concept includes the representation of the observing subject's own body. Schopenhauer called the subject's own body the immediate object because it is in the closest proximity to the mind, which is located in the brain. (Summary by wikipedia) Volume 1 of


  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you'd like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/38427

    Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.[/b]

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

  5. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  6. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Section [number] of The World As Will and Idea. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say:
      " The World As Will and Idea Volume 1, by Arthur Schopenhauer . Translated by R. B. Haldane & J. Kemp [ Book number. book title. Section number]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [ Book number. book title. Section number] "
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The World As Will and Idea Volume 1, by Arthur Schopenhauer . Translated by R. B. Haldane & J. Kemp "

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  7. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    worldaswill1_##_schopenhauer.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. worldaswill1_01_schopenhauer.mp3)

    [b]ID3 V2 tags

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Arthur Schopenhauer
    Album: The World As Will and Idea Vol.1

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: arb - annise
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

ATTENTION READERS : (1) the gutenberg link does not have hyperlinks and when you have to find your section the best way is to copy the number along with the symbol § and searching for in the crtl+f in windows or cmd+f in MAc;
like if you are searching for section 17 then "Crtl+f § 17" is the fastest way to get you there.
(2): please do NOT read the foot notes, for your and the listeners convenience.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

hello awangelgirl,
Welcome to librivox,you can sure take up the sections you want, however,its important that you get an OK in the listeners thread after submitting your one minute test recording, after which you'll have a fairly good idea of how it all works in Librivox and thats what you'll be using again and again.
so, see you soon.

FYI, you have two 07's, 16's, and 17's and no 15. ;)

I assume that the section titles in the MW are NOT what you want in the ID tags. What do you want for ID tags? (It might be better to put what you have in the sections into the notes field instead, and make the section titles in the MW what you want for the ID tag.)

I've slowed down on my recording lately, but when I get back into it, I'll consider claiming some sections. :)
