Oráculo manual y arte de prudencia by Baltasar Gracián y Morales ( Book )
150 editions published between 1647 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En los aforismos de Oráculo manual y arte de prudencia (1647), Gracián reflexiona sobre la verdadera naturaleza del éxito. Este es el eje central de El criticón (tres partes, que aparecieron en 1651, 1653 y 1657), novela alegórica que gira en torno a las peripecias de los dos protagonistas: Andrenio, el buen salvaje que vive en estado natural, y Critilo, el individuo sagaz, prudente y razonable. Gracián y Quevedo son las figuras más relevantes del conceptismo. Las definiciones de Gracián al respecto afirman que el escritor debe mezclar lo complejo y lo breve con precisión aforística. Gracián pretendió establecer asociaciones conceptuales a través del contraste de dos términos en una misma imagen. Creía que estas relaciones entre signos son semejantes a las que se dan entre las cosas reales

Ein literarischer Wegbegleiter für jede Lebenslage Wie finde ich in einer unvollkommenen und vergänglichen Welt mein Glück? Das 'Handorakel' von Baltasar Gracián ist einer der berühmtesten Texte des 17. Jahrhunderts und eine einzigartige Schule der Weltklugheit. Graciáns lakonische Ratschläge zur taktisch klugen Lebensführung ermöglichen den moralischen Triumph des Einzelnen im Alltag und führen den Leser spielerisch ein in die Kunst der strategischen Intrige und hinterlistigen Täuschung. Mal bitterböse, mal vermeintlich ironisch und doppelsinnig, vermochte das 'Handorakel' Dichter und Denker wie Brecht und Nietzsche, Benjamin und Schopenhauer zu begeistern. Letzteren veranlasste Graciáns Geniestreich zu einer kongenialen Übersetzung. Für die Manesse-Ausgabe wurde sie neu kommentiert und erstmals mit einem Glossar versehen. Baltasar Gracián y Morales (1601-1658) war ein spanischer Jesuitenpater und gilt als einer der bedeutendsten philosophischen Schriftsteller. Wegen seiner aufklärerischen Weltsicht erhielt er Publikationsverbot. Im deutschen Sprachraum wurde er durch die vorliegende Übersetzung des Philosophen Arthur Schopenhauer bekannt

A pocket mirror for heroes by Baltasar Gracián y Morales ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Pocket Mirror for Heroes is a mirror because it reflects "the person you are or the one you ought to be." It is a pocket mirror because its author took the time to be brief. And it is a mirror for heroes because it provides a vivid image of ethical and moral perfection to which all can aspire. The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Baltasar Gracian was all but forgotten for three hundred years, until its republication in 1992 turned this lost classic into a New York Times bestseller. Now Gracian, the Spanish Jesuit considered Machiavelli's better in strategy and insight, sets a new standard on the art of living and the practice of achieving. That new standard is the art of heroism--how to be "the consummate person, ripe and perfect: accurate in judgment, mature in taste, attentive in listening, wise in sayings, shrewd in deeds, the center of all perfection." Gracian teaches the reader to be "a giant"--"the greatest person possible, a miracle of perfection, a king." Wit, wisdom, courage, elegance, grace, humility, spontaneity--these are the qualities needed to reach heroism in any occupation. But it is not enough to be wise or graceful: one must learn as well how to manage that talent, how to distinguish a quality fiom its shadow. A Pocket Mirror for Heroes provides "a politics for governing oneself, a compass for sailing toward excellence, an art for reaching distinction with just a few rules of discretion," and it will be wise and witty company for anyone who recognizes--and relishes--the challenges of daily life
