What were the causes of the philosophical deficit in the contemporary Catalan society? This book offers a quite complete overview – and bitter – of the academic and extra-academic conditions in which the philosophy in Catalonia has had to be cultivated, all philosophy, focusing, that is, in the personal and collective adventures of those who have had the fickleness of working with logic. The book narrates with amenity and lucidity ‘La estancia’ from Bertrand Russell in Barcelona, the defenestration of Eugeni d’Ors, the teaching aberrations of Josep Daurella i Rull, the short and brilliant intellectual career of Joan Crexells, the ecclesiastical adventures David García Bacca and Miquel Soy, the exile of Josep Ferrater Mora and the gestation of his bulky Dictionary of philosophy, the marginalisation of Manual Sacristán, the facultative conflicts of Valencian philosophy in the 70s… The result is a history of philosophy secluded in many aspects of the ‘abstract’ and ‘idealised’ image usually offered by philosophical historiography.
