"A Necessidade da Filosofia

A filosofia não brota por ser útil, mas tão-pouco pela acção irracional de um desejo veemente. É constitutivamente necessária ao intelectual. Porquê? A sua nota radical era buscar o todo como um tal todo, capturar o Universo, caçar o Unicórnio. Mas porquê esse profundo anseio? Por que não nos contentamos com o que, sem filosofar, achamos no mundo, com o que já é e aí está patente diante de nós? Por esta simples razão: tudo o que é e está aí, quanto nos é dado, presente

Me encontré mirando a la nada mientras leía este libro. La exposición magnifica de temas filosóficos de una forma atendible pero fuera de lo ordinaria es lo que hace a esta obra una de las mejores con las que me he topado.
El libro es una recopilación de una serie de conferencias que Ortega & Gasset realizo en un teatro en Madrid con el objetivo de acercar a la filosofía a los españoles del común.

En primer lugar, me gustaría pedir perdón por el atrevimiento de comentar libros de filosofía sin haber cursado estudios en la materia. Por otro lado, considero que precisamente esto me permite valorar determinados textos para el gran público. No creo que se viera con buenos ojos que un filósofo opinara que tal libro de Kant o de Leibniz es un tocho insoportable.
No es un secreto que Ortega y Gasset es uno de los grandes autores, no solo de filosofía española, sino quizá del pensamiento mundial.

Better than Heidegger at least.

Espectacular libro en el que Ortega nos alumbra una nueva ontologia del ser y la filosofía. Yendo más allá de la filosofía clásica y moderna, que tienen como punto de cambio Descartes y su " pienso, luego existo", se establece la definición de filosofía, la actividad que es filosofar, y sus datos radicales, siendo el primero y el más radical, "nuestra vida". Sin palabras me he quedado, apasionante.

What is philosophy? What is knowledge? What is the universe? Señor Ortega explores so many ideas through his dazzling prose, and through his unique way of seeing the world . . .

This book is a wonderful exploration of the question, 'What is philosophy?'

José Ortega y Gasset was a Spanish liberal philosopher and essayist working during the first half of the 20th century while Spain oscillated between monarchy, republicanism and dictatorship. He was, along with Kant, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche, a proponent of the idea of perspectivism.

“Scientific truth is characterized by its exactness and the rigorous quality of its assumptions. But experimental science wins these admirable qualities at the cost of maintaining itself on a plane of secondary problems and leaving the decisive and ultimate questions intact. Out of this renunciation it makes its essential virtue, and for this, if for nothing else, it deserves applause. But experimental science is only a meager portion of the mind and the organism. Where it stops, man does not stop. If the physicist stays the hand with which he delineates things at the point where his methods end, the human being who stands behind every physicist prolongs the line and carries it on to the end, just as our eye, seeing a portion of a broken arch, automatically completes the missing airy curve.” 2 likes
