Spain’s early twentieth-century history will forever be linked to the memory of the Spanish Civil War and the dictatorship that ensued. It was also a period of artistic and intellectual splendour. The purpose of these sessions is to serve as an introduction to twentieth-century Spanish philosophy by focusing on three of its most influential figures: Miguel de Unamuno, José Ortega y Gasset and María Zambrano. The aim is to examine these thinkers’ most outstanding contributions to the history of ideas and to position them in their socio-historical context.
26th May: “The Tragic Sense of Being Unamuno”.
2nd June: “Ortega y Gasset and his Circumstances”.
9th June: “María Zambrano: Midway between Delirium and Destiny”.
16th June: “Introduction to María Zambrano’s Poetic Reason”.
