The mind/body problem does not concern Schopenhauer, who explains in ‘The World as Will and Representation’, that there is only one central underlying principle behind reality: ‘the will’, and the world merely consists of the will, and representation is just a way of looking at the will. The relationship between the body and mind can also be explained through this theory, and as such, are representations of ‘the will’; mind and body are just different ways of looking at the same thing.
