Theory of Fine Arts of Ortega y Gasset
KeywordsJose Ortega y Gasset, theory of fine arts, spanish philosophy
In my essay I would like to rehabilitate the importance of the spanish philosophy and indicate its important position in the twentieth century with particular emphasis on the theory of fine arts – what particularly interests me. I would also like to draw attention to the method, which Ortega uses in research on art – referring object to life. However, if Ortega y Gasset has exhausted the research on the matter of art? If he philosopher is consistent in his research? These problems take my analysis of works of Jose Ortega y Gasset. obstacle in the studies Gasset’s thought in Poland is the unavailability of polish translations, in the Polish language was published only a small part of the books of the philosopher. On one hand, Gasset’s thought is a perfect example of spanish philosophy, philosopher to the everyday life of their country, does not create abstract systems, refers. On the other hand Ortega y Gasset’s familiarity with the european philosophy allowed him as one of the few to open the minds of his countrymen on the rich heritage of European thought.
