Most widely held works by Enrique Hegewicz
History of the idea of progress by Robert A Nisbet( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 1998 in Spanish and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of progress from the Enlightenment to postmodernism is still very much with us. In intellectual discourse, journals, popular magazines, and radio and talk shows, the debate between those who are "progressivists" and those who are "declinists" is as spirited as it was in the late seventeenth century. In History of the Idea of Progress, Robert Nisbet traces the idea of progress from its origins in Greek, Roman, and medieval civilizations to modern times. It is a masterful frame of reference for understanding the present world. Nisbet asserts there are two fundamental building blocks necessary to Western doctrines of human advancement: the idea of growth, and the idea of necessity. He sees Christianity as a key element in both secular and spiritual evolution, for it conveys all the ingredients of the modern idea of progress: the advancement of the human race in time, a single time frame for all the peoples and epochs of the past and present, the conception of time as linear, and the envisagement of the future as having a utopian end. In his new introduction, Nisbet shows why the idea of progress remains of critical importance to studies of social evolution and natural history. He provides a contemporary basis for many disciplines, including sociology, economics, philosophy, religion, politics, and science. History of the Idea of Progress continues to be a major resource for scholars in all these areas

Biographia literaria by Samuel Taylor Coleridge( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Samuel Taylor Coleridge struggled to control his opium addiction, he published the acclaimed poetry collections Christabel; Kubla Khan, a Vision; The Pains of Sleep and Sibylline Leaves. Coleridge originally intended to write a brief biographical preface for the latter volume, but in his usual style he included digression after digression and the preface soon ballooned into a two-volume independent work. The Biographia Literaria has since been recognized as Coleridge's most influential prose composition. An exploration of both Coleridge's life and his opinions on literature, the book contains appraisals of a wide range of thinkers from Immanuel Kant to Coleridge's friend William Wordsworth

The return of the soldier by Rebecca West( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in Spanish and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World War I, in the background of Rebecca West's first novel, was "the first war that women could imagine," writes Samuel Hynes in his eloquent introduction, "and so it was the first that a woman could write into a novel." Narrated by a woman who, like West, has never experienced war and yet for whom the war was very real, The Return of the Soldier (1918) takes place not on a battlefield, but in an isolated country house. It examines the relationships between three women and a soldier suffering from shell shock. This novel of an enclosed world invaded by public events also embodies in its characters the shifts in England's class structures at the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the choice between the romantic past and the horrifying present, between love and reality"--Jacket
