Philosophy – The Poetry of Knowledge

The subject and the object of philosophy is the man of flesh and bone. What is philosophy? Philosophy is an anthropocentric description of the order of the world. In Unamuno’s opinion, philosophy is closer to poetry than to science. It is based on experiences and feelings. These contents can be expressed directly or symbolically by aesthetic codes of art. They allow overcoming the restrictions imposed on man. The philosophy in this meaning leads to the structuring of reality.


Who Am I? Human Structure

A man according to Unamuno is someone specific because of the principle of unity and continuity. The first – unity – refers to man in relation to space, the second- continuity – in relation to time. Unity is a realization one’s corporality and thanks to one’s actions. Continuity provides one with an awareness of one’s own experiences and history. Continuity is based on one’s memory, which not only defines one but also influences one’s future.
