Philosophy in Don Quixote: Commentary on the Meditations of Ortega y Gasset (Paperback)
This small book is a commentary on the first published book of the Spanish philosopher Jos Ortega y Gasset in which he draws philosophical insights from the classic novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616). Jos Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) was a Spanish philosopher who anticipated many of the themes of later, more famous existentialists such as Heidegger. In the Meditations on Quixote (1914), Ortega anticipates many of the philosophical ideas that he developed during the rest of his life. Reading Ortega's insights will deepen your experience of daily life as you learn to think philosophically about your circumstance. This book is the second in a series on Ortega. The first book in this series is Freedom and Circumstance: Philosophy in Ortega y Gasset, which is also available at Amazon.com.
