  • Beatriz Caballero Rodriguez (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


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.

2nd June: “Ortega y Gasset and his Circumstances”.
