Download Maria Zambrano. Desde la sombra llameante (El Ojo del by Clara Janés,Jesús Moreno Sanz PDF

By Clara Janés,Jesús Moreno Sanz

María Zambrano (1904-1991) se plantea desde sus primeros escritos l. a. relación entre filosofía y poesía, consolidando, junto al concepto de «razón vital», de Ortega y Gasset, el de «razón poética». A través de su aproximación a l. a. expresión lírica y l. a. mística, l. a. pensadora hace tomar cuerpo en el texto a las palabras de Wittgenstein: «la filosofía no es una doctrina, sino una actividad». En efecto, su escritura se constituye en un ente vivo y en movimiento. Ese carácter autogenésico se debe a las captaciones de l. a. «razón poética», que abarcan l. a. rebeldía humana, l. a. ebriedad ritual, los vislumbres del misterio y los angeles disposición a transmitir el secreto y, por tanto, los angeles voz y l. a. palabra encarnada, unidas a l. a. música, que, nos cube, es «la que vence al silencio antes que el logos». Cuando Clara Janés conoce a María Zambrano, ha reflexionado mucho sobre estas cuestiones y se siente afianzada e impulsada a profundizar. Resultado de sus conversaciones y lecturas son los textos recogidos en este libro.
