En el centenario del nacimiento de Octavio Paz, un lúcido ensayo sobre los angeles vida y obra del premio Nobel mexicano.

Octavio Paz sigue definiendo el landscape de las letras y las principles en México, a cien años de su nacimiento.

La libertad siempre fue una de las preocupaciones centrales del poeta. Para él, además de un concepto filosófico y político se trata de un acto que debe ejercitarse constantemente. El recorrido que propone Guadalupe Nettel tiene por brújula los angeles evolución de los angeles thought de libertad en los angeles obra de Octavio Paz a lo largo de cuatro periodos: sus comienzos literarios en nuestro país y el viaje a España durante l. a. guerra civil; París y su relación con los surrealistas y l. a. izquierda no alineada, su larga estancia en Oriente, y por último el regreso definitivo a México. A través de este itinerario, el libro revisa los angeles relación entre los angeles vida y los angeles obra de Paz; entre poesía y política, creación y crítica. También analiza su condición como figura pública y su polémico acercamiento con el gobierno mexicano en los años finales de su vida. Pues no basta con decir que los angeles obra de Octavio Paz es un producto del siglo XX mexicano, de los angeles tradición y de los angeles modernidad; hay que añadir que el siglo XX mexicano, los angeles tradición y l. a. modernidad también son productos de esa obra.

Example text

ECLECTICISM 45 but does not fall back iDto subservience to ecclesiastical dogma and tutelage. It would not be fair to Cousin to suggest that lle is blind to the fact that this sort of interpretation of the history of development presupposes a philosophy, a definite stand in regard to criteria of truth and falsehood. l Cousin's rejection of the sensationalism of Condillac by no means entails a rejection of the method of observation and experiment in philosophy, nor indeed of starting with psychology.

The Catholic system was outmoded, while Lutheranism had emphasized an interiority divorced from political life. What was needed was the realization of the message of the Christian gospel in the social-political sphere. As Saint-Simon's insistence on ethico-religious motivation was expressed in a work which appeared in the year preceding that of his death, it has sometimes been thought that it represented a radical change in his thought and pretty well a recantation of SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY IN FRANCE positivism.

This implication was obviously not intended. Saint-Simon does not of course treat society in a purely abstract manner. Social and political institutions develop and change; and Saint-Simon assumes that there must be a law which governs such changes. To study human society scientifically involves therefore discovery of the law or laws of social evolution. If we take it that any such law can be discovered only inductively, by investigating and reflecting on the historical phenomena, it is obvious that a survey of the widest possible field is desirable.
