About the Author

Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983), is a famous contemporary Spanish philosopher. Zubiri rethought the problems of philosophy in a very profound way and developed a radically new approach to knowing and reality, termed Sentient Intelligence. His thought is a synthesis of classical philosophy (from Aristotle to St. Thomas) and phenomenology, but goes beyond both. Zubiri's theological writings utilize this philosophical framework. Thomas Fowler is president and founder of the Xavier Zubiri Foundation of North America. He has translated two other works by Zubiri and is editor of The Xavier Zubiri Review, a journal devoted to Zubiri studies. He also serves as adjunct professor at George Mason University and his book, The Evolution Controversy, A Survey of Competing Theories was published in 2007. Nelson Orringer is a retired professor of comparative literature at the University of Connecticut, who has authored many books about Spanish literary and philosophical figures and has translated a book by Zubiri into English. He is widely respected as an expert on twentieth century Spanish authors, especially Ortega y Gassett, Unamuno, and Zubiri, among others. Joaquin Redondo is a longtime scholar and researcher of Zubiri. A native speaker of both Spanish and English, he is in a unique position to translate Zubiri's philosophical expressions, often metaphorical, into clear English. He has also translated three other works by Zubiri in addition to this book, and is preparing a fifth.

Reviews

Man and God (El hombre y Dios) is the book upon which Xavier Zubiri was working when he died on September 21st, 1983. Fortunately, he left it almost complete, and that is the reason why the present text constitutes a systematic work and not a miscellany of fragments or essays. It is the first of his theology trilogy, the next two volumes of which are El problema filosofico de la historia de las religiones (The Philosophical Problem of the History of Religions), and Cristianismo (Christianity). Man and God has a profound relation of homogeneity with other books published by Zubiri: Sobre la esencia [English translation, On Essence, 1980], and the trilogy Inteligencia y Realidad , Inteligencia y Logos , and Inteligencia y Razon which together comprise Zubiri's major work, Inteligencia Sentiente [English translation, Sentient Intelligence, 1999]. In these works Zubiri sought to overcome the centuries-old conceptualism and idealism of Metaphysics (On Essence) and the Theory of Knowledge (Sentient Intelligence) though a new, unified vision of them capable of resolving the myriad problems accumulated over two and half millennia of intellectual effort.
