Xavier RUBERT DE VENTÓS

Filosofia d’estar per casa

Ara Llibres, 2004

Synopsis

(Homemade philosophy) In this book the reader finds reflections on culture, books, educating children, politics and death… Xavier Rubert de Ventòs draws us into our everyday reality from his particular vision of the world. “The last thing we know – we are told– is always the second to last thing we can know. Each piece of knowledge opens the door to a new mystery… And as this disconcerts us, we seize whichever dogma (secular or religious) that offers us a simpler or more complete vision of things. This is the temptation I fight against in these pages.”
