Mist : a tragicomic novel by Miguel de Unamuno( Book )

18 editions published between 1926 and 1997 in German and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fog is a fresh new translation of the Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno's Niebla, first published in 1914. An early example of modernism's challenge to the conventions of nineteenth-century realist fiction, Fog shocked critics but delighted readers with its formal experimentation and existential themes. This revolutionary novel anticipates the work of Sartre, Borges, Pirandello, Nabokov, Calvino, and Vonnegut.The novel's central character, Augusto, is a pampered, aimless young man who falls in love with Eugenia, a woman he randomly spots on the street. Augusto's absurd infatuation offers an irresistible target for the philosophical ruminations of Unamuno's characters, including Eugenia's guardian aunt and "theoretical anarchist" uncle, Augusto's comical servants, and his best friend, Victor, an aspiring writer who introduces him to a new, groundbreaking type of fiction. In a desperate moment, Augusto consults his creator about his fate, arguing with Unamuno about what it means to be "real." Even Augusto's dog, Orfeo, offers his canine point of view, reflecting on the meaning of life and delivering his master's funeral oration.Fog is a comedy, a tragic love story, a work of metafiction, and a novel of ideas. After more than a century, Unamuno's classic novel still moves us, makes us laugh, and invites us to question our assumptions about literature, relationships, and mortality

Kant's 1788 follow-up to his epochal Critique of Pure Reason analyzes the practical aspects of reason, which is concerned with will, or self-determination. He argues that the freedom of the will becomes the practical necessity of determining how one shall lead one's life, with the fundamental principle of morality being the "categorical imperative" stating that one should be obligated to act so that any moral action could be made into a universal law binding all mankind
