Overview

Although Julian Marias has inherited the mantle of the great Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset, he has developed a theory of philosophy exclusively his own that emerges clearly in this collection of fourteen essays. Marias’s unique view of the philosophical enterprise as a dramatic one is applied to considerations of literary genre, theism and atheism, the dramatic structure of philosophy, life and death, the human body, and the concept of power and reality.

This is the first work of Marias’s to appear in English since his History of Philosophy. The translation is as lucid as Marias’s thought and is significant and welcome addition to the available works of this important and original philosopher.
