Estudios Sobre el Amor by Jose Ortega y Gasset Estudios Sobre el Amor, Paperback / softback (November 2015)

Ortega y Gasset's influence was considerable, not only because many sympathized with his philosophical writings, but also because his writings did not require that the reader be well read in technical philosophy. Ortega y Gasset influenced existentialism and the work of Martin Heidegger. In this book Ortega y Gasset takes on the subject of love.

Idea of Principle in Leibnitz and the Evolution of Deductive Theory by Jose Ortega y Gasset Idea of Principle in Leibnitz and the Evolution of Deductive Theory, Paperback (November 2007)

This book, an exploration of the work of Leibnitz, is Ortega's most systematic contribution to philosophy.

Psychological Investigations by Jose Ortega y Gasset Psychological Investigations, Paperback (June 2007)

This volume, based on lectures given by Ortega in 1915-1916, makes available more of his translated works and is an important part of his philosophical legacy. It gives expression, in characteristically lucid and accessible prose, to Ortega's encounter with classical psychology and Husserl's phenomenology.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Starting with Galileo and his effect on history, Ortega y Gasset, acclaimed as the greatest intellectual force in modern Spain and one of the outstanding minds of our century, traces the transition in man's philosophy and reasoning, going further back to the change from paganism to Christianity and from the Greeks to the present. The present here is a period of disorientation rather than desperation. Wandering easily back and forth, his approach, as once described by himself, is that of "marching seven times 'round the walls of Jericho", and is effected to orient the reader to the present by a review of the past, believing that all movements characteristic of this moment are extreme and historically false and headed for failure since all extremism inevitably fails. The ending is abrupt - without conclusions - but this work should rank, for the layman, among the best of his efforts; for the philosopher and historian it should have its special importance. ??A posthumous work from the 1940's (the author died in 1955), this, in content, precedes the previous Man and People (1957) and is translated by Mildred Adams. (Kirkus Reviews)
