José Xavier Zubiri Apalategui

San Sebastián 1898 - Madrid 1983

Spanish intellectual, student of Ortega y Gasset, Zubiri was ordained a priest in 1921 and taught History of Philosophy at the Universidad Central of Madrid. During a long period in Germany, he came into contact with Husserl, Heidegger and Hartmann. In 1935, after being released from his vows, he moved to the Institute Catholique in Paris. Returning to Spain at the end of the civil war, he was obliged to transfer to the University of Barcelona, where he remained until 1942. He subsequently taught privately in Madrid, where in 1947 he founded the Sociedad de Estudio y Publicaciones and began publishing his major works. Zubiri elaborated a form of Christian existentialistic realism and a phenomenological actualization of scholastic anthropology, founded on the anti-subjectivistic concept of the “relegation” between man and God.

Main works: Naturaleza, Historia, Dios (Madrid 1945); Inteligencia Sentiente. Inteligencia y Realidad (Madrid 1980); Inteligencia Sentiente. Inteligencia y Logos (Madrid 1982); Inteligencia Sentiente. Inteligencia y Razón (Madrid 1983).
