The questions of life : an invitation to philosophy by Fernando Savater ( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, by one of Spain's most eminent philosophers, provides a lively and very accessible introduction to philosophy. Written for those who have no prior knowledge of the field, it reveals how the central problems of philosophy remain highly relevant to everyday contemporary life. Savater addresses the questions that we ourselves must face: what is this 'I' that I take for granted? What does it mean for me to be in the world? In what sense am I free? And how does the idea of death affect my life? In his discussion of concepts such as beauty, time and language, Savater frequently refers to earlier philosophers, yet he does so in a way that brings their ideas to life and shows their enduring relevance. Using quotations from the ancient Greeks through to more recent philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Sartre, Savater illustrates his own arguments, while also sketching a basic history of philosophical ideas. The Questions of Life has already been translated into ten languages and has enjoyed enormous success, selling over 70 000 copies in Spain alone. It is an elegant and straightforward book that abstains from specialized terminology. It constitutes an ideal introductory text for those studying philosophy at A-Level or university, and will also be of great interest to the general reader. -- Back cover

El dialecto de la vida by Fernando Savater ( Book )
13 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lo que comienza siendo una novela de viajes, con la persecución periodística de las huellas de Robert Louis Stevenson, se engarza con las reflexiones sobre el fracaso de la relación amorosa del protagonista con su mujer, y con la naciente y equívoca amistad entre el hombre maduro y el joven fotógrafo que le acompaña. El escenario es Escocia, pero no la Escocia turística de los catálogos, sino la neblinosa, la de los pantanos, los castillos derruidos en lugares casi inalcanzables, los viejos bebedores de whisky que soportan un último trago acodados en la barra. Alan, el maduro protagonista, indaga en sus recuerdos el modo de recobrar el amor de su mujer, pero la vitalidad del joven David, su inestabilidad e inmadurez, su continua fascinación ante todo cuanto hay a su alrededor, harán cambiar los planes de Alan y le llevarán a descubrir facetas de su propia personalidad que le sorprenderán e inquietarán. Brumas, mucho y buen whisky, la memoria y sus deformaciones, jóvenes de aspecto seductor, reflexiones sobre la creación literaria, la impotencia de la filosofía ante la realidad, las calles de las obras de Stevenson, de los criminales de aquel tiempo, entrecruzándose con la vida de Alan y David son el caldo en el que se cuece una novela de intriga, de terror, de viajes y de amor, una novela, incluso, iniciatica para el David que descubre el mundo de mano del hombre maduro, al modo de los antiguos sabios griegos
