Schopenhauer / BLACK TOOLS by Hanspeter Schmid

The German philosopher Schopenhauer compiled the list of 38 tricks I have shown you in the six preceding issues of this Newsletter. Schopenhauer never published his list of tricks, although he possibly presented it in lectures at the University of Berlin in 1830. His way of explaining the tricks is rather outdated now so I took his list, combined it with some of my own philosophy, and recorded it in six Black Tools columns; I'll call them [1; March/April 1999] to [6; January/February 2000]. The seven articles available on this page appeared in the Newsletter of the IEEE Professional Communication Society in 1999 and 2000.
