Overview

History as a System, and Other Essays Toward a Philosophy of History by Jose Ortega y Gasset

“Senor Ortega y Gasset has contributed a thoughtful and a careful analysis of our present situation. If he is correct, then nationalism and liberalism as we have known them in the past are doomed. A new and perhaps a better order and conditioning of life are on the way. This book attempts to justify historically the coming of great change—the same great change that was prophesied by William Morris in England, more than half a century ago.” —The New York Times
Four stimulating essays: “The Sportive Origin of the State,” “Unity and Diversity of Europe,” “Man the Technician,” and “History as a System.” The essays by Ortega in this volume were originally published under the title Toward a Philosophy of History.
