La memoria del Logos: Estudios sobre el diálogo platónico

PREMIO PRINCESA DE ASTURIAS DE COMUNICACIÓN Y HUMANIDADES 2015

PREMIO NACIONAL DE LAS LETRAS ESPAÑOLAS 2014

La memoria del logos es uno de los textos clave de Emilio Lledó, gran exponente de l. a. filosofía contemporánea

Dialogar con el creador de los diálogos es uno de los ejercicios más fecundos para volver a plantear las cuestiones esenciales de los angeles filosofía. En las largas listas de investigaciones sobre Platón se ha olvidado frecuentemente que entre su orilla y los angeles nuestra fluyen las mismas preguntas. ¿Cómo vivir? ¿Para qué pensar? ¿Cómo relacionar los angeles notion y los angeles realidad? ¿Qué es sentir? ¿Qué es amor? ¿Cómo puede el lenguaje comunicar eso que se llama «verdad»? ¿Por qué el lenguaje puede ir más allá que los angeles basic referencia a lo actual? ¿Tiene l. a. teoría alguna otra justificación que aquella que le da los angeles praxis? ¿Son los conceptos, las palabras, reflejo fiel de los angeles vida y del conocimiento, o son su deformación? ¿Puede l. a. educación, los angeles paideia, mejorar a los hombres? ¿Tiene sentido l. a. palabra felicidad? Un nuevo Platón emerge de las cuestiones que laten en este libro.

Emilio Lledó es un filósofo capaz de otorgar a los angeles filosofía una dimensión práctica y de construir puentes entre los filósofos clásicos y nosotros. Su vocación docente consigue que sus libros estén al alcance de cualquier lector interesado en l. a. filosofía, el lenguaje y l. a. moral.

«Pensador de relevancia internacional y de trayectoria ejemplar en el ámbito de las humanidades, concibe los angeles Filosofía como meditación sobre el lenguaje y subraya los angeles tendencia normal del ser humano hacia l. a. comunicación. [...] Hace suya los angeles razón ilustrada a través de un diálogo que impulsa los angeles convivencia en libertad y democracia.»

Del acta del Jurado del premio Princesa de Asturias
