Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Senor Ortega y Gasset has contributed a thoughtful and a careful analysis of our present situation. If he is correct, then nationalism and liberalism as we have known them in the past are doomed. A new and perhaps a better order and conditioning of life are on the way. This book attempts to justify historically the coming of great change--the same great change that was prophesied by William Morris in England, more than half a century ago." --

Synopsis:

Four stimulating essays: "The Sportive Origin of the State," "Unity and Diversity of Europe," "Man the Technician," and "History as a System." The essays by Ortega in this volume were originally published under the title .

About the Author
