Summary: The philosophy A. Schopenhauer's has been intensively effecting Croatian literature and philosophy since 1880. Most of the nameful Croatian realistic, as well as modernistic novelists and dramatists were reflecting Schopenhauer's idea of self assertive will.

The monograph "The Adoption of Arthur Schopenhauer within the Croatian Literature and Philosophy" contains also a detailed list of the most relevant essays on Schopenhauer, as well as the translation of his works into Croatian and Serbian.
