Spanish tradition and present time Ethical and Moral values: a critical overview

Spanish literature and essays, in the field of the moral implications of themselves.

It is known that two of the most important philosophers Spaniards, Unamuno and Ortega y Gasset, wrote their own essays on Don Quixote. But we believe that from our present filosfica activity is not suitable, perhaps, this matter due attention. To quote a text by Alasdair Mac Intyre of his book After Virtue, a text quiz can be useful to us for what we propose: “If human life is understood as a trnsito to travs of damages and dangers, moral yfsicos, who faces and overcomes a worse or better and with more or less success, the virtues and qualities encontrarn a posesiny whose exercise leads to success in the company and vice in turn, as qualities that lead to failure. Therefore, every human life embody a history whose life and dependern configuration of what is deemed to be daoy danger, success and failure, progress and its opposite, in short, is how understood and valued. Answering these questions requires answers as well, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, when asked about what are the virtues and vices. The answer to this coherent set of questions gave the poets of the heroic society Not the same as he Sfocles, but the bond is the same in both, and reveals how the belief in certain kinds of virtues and the belief that human life shows some narrative order, estn linked internally. ” 29.

I refer briefly to a Spanish philosopher, exiled in Mexico, after the defeat of the Republicans at the hands of Franco. Jos is Gaos, who introduced in Mexico historicist thought had learned from his teacher Ortega y Gasset in Madrid. In the sense mentioned by Mac Intyre, reading Don Quixote by philosophers influenced by Dilthey’s historicism, leaves a deep imprint in the way of understanding and philosophy on American soil. Essays have been written comparing Hundred years of Solitude Garcia Marquez of Colombia with the works of Cervantes that we have been referring. Jos Gaos see the thought in Spanish from the perspective that builds from literature, painting, art, Spanish American. From Jos Mart Guilln Nicols, Traven or from the book The Colonel no one writes, it is the idea of a world not governed by mere reason geometric ( Descartes) for the reason of state (Hobbes), but a world of possibilities open filosfico that what has been defined as a utopia. Gaos, in an essay written in 1967 insists that “the main theme of Don Quixote is just the reason of the sinrazny reality.”The strength of the theater, the representation, in which the real and present us with soad in order to reflect the public about the moral meaning of life. The utility must justify his philosophy of life, to life. We mentioned this approach to the study of moral problems, because we believe that Spain does not seem to be important, you can even speak of a certain contempt, who see art, theater, literature, and outside or at least filosfica tangential activity, when Anglo passes have worked in this direction and continues hacindolo. The most notorious case that comes at this point to mind is that of philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre francs. His conception of human freedom is reflected in plays such as The Trojan Women and The Devil and the Good Lord, as we can say that Calderon filosfica explains his vision of the world and of morality in his works theater, as if life is sleep.
