Constructin...(Read More)

A Critique and Overcoming of Idealism
Antonio Rodriguez Huescar - Author
Jorge Garcia-Gomez - Editor/translator

"This book presents the main argument that Ortega y Gasset brought forth in his attempted renovation of Western philosophy. The radicality of Ortega's treatment of the Idealism/Realism issue makes it important for philosophy per se. It is one of the best, clearest and most penetrating presentation of Ortega in the English language. The writing is remarkable, the translation excellent." -- Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, The World Institute for Advanced Phe...(Read More)
