Summary

"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 Phenomenological Research and Learning

Huescar presents a systematic critique of idealism and modernity, framing Edmund Husserl's phenomenological philosophy as the most refined and far-reaching version of idealism. He includes the essentials of the system of categories adopted by Ortega in order to overcome idealism.

"It is a serious work and a welcome contribution to the field of twentieth-century thought and Spanish philosophy marked by tight argumentation and justification of Ortega as a systematic thinker." -- R. A. Herrera, Seton Hall University

Antonio Rodriguez Huescar was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Puerto Rico. Jorge Garcia-Gomez is Professor of Philosophy at Long Island University. He has also edited and translated J. Ortega y Gasset's Psychological Investigations.
