Julián MARÍAS – The Search for Man (transl. by D. Chabrajska)


Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

While reflecting on the validity of the theory of evolution, Marías stresses that a human person is a reality which is extremely different from all other realities existing in the world, because in the reality of man, of the person, there is embedded unreality: man lives in the future, is expectation, project, insecurity, something which does not exist. A human person is irreducible to any other reality of which she may partake. Therefore the theory of evolution appears most unsatisfactory in trying to explain the unique reality of mankind.
