"Jose Ortega y Gasset identifies two kinds of activity serving human advancement: on the one hand, a vital, creative profligacy that generates multiple possibilities; on the other, a utilitarian mechanization that trims this excess back to everyday use and habit. In this dialectic, Ortega locates the origin of the state as well as of evolution, which he describes as "a consequence of innumerable useless actions which a living being performs out of sheer exuberance."" "Writing in the 1940s, he foresees the unification of the states of Europe, noting that "the unity of Europe as society is not an ideal but an ancient daily fact." He also discusses the advantages, the limitations, and the threat of technology, insisting that its illusory security imperils Western civilization."--Jacket

78 editions published between 1944 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book a 20th century Spanish philosopher attempts to answer two essential questions concerning the mission of higher education: first, what is the knowledge most worth knowing by all students? And, second, what is the function of the university in a modern democracy? The writer defines four primary missions for the university: (1) the teaching of the learned professions; (2) the fostering of scientific research; (3) training for political leadership; and (4) the creation of cultured persons with the ability to make intellectual interpretations of the world. This new edition also contains an new introduction (by Clark Kerr) in which the author's ideas are analyzed in their historical context and in which speculations are raised on how the great issues dealt with in the text can be made contemporary for modern students facing the challenges and uncertainties of the 21st century. Contains an index. (Glr)

The origin of philosophy by José Ortega y Gasset( Book )

14 editions published between 1967 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This concise, elegant essay on the roots and historical justification of philosophy marks a decisive step in posing the problem of what philosophy is. With consummate clarity and the charisma that distinguished him as a lecturer, Jos Ortega y Gasset re-creates "that moment when Parmenides began talking about something exceptionally strange, which he called 'being'". How and why, he asks, did such a surprising adventure come about? Considering the human qualities that prompt a curiosity about existence and eternity, Ortega examines philosophy's etymology, its connection to poetry, and its differentiation from religion and other modes of thought. He lucidly delineates radical differences of doctrine and style among early Greek thinkers, especially the "madman of reason" Parmenides and the "absolute individual" Heraclitus. He also considers philosophy's fundamental task of revealing the latent world poised behind the manifest world and discovering the relations between them. "Unable to find lodging among the philosophies of the past", Ortega observes, "we have no choice but to attempt to construct one of our own". "The Origin of Philosophy" argues for the vital importance of philosophy as a human endeavor, even while noting that each generation of thought reveals the past as "a defunct world of errors"
