José Ferrater Mora

Barcelona 1912 - 1991

Ferrater Mora is unanimously considered the most internationally renowned Catalan philosopher of the twentieth century. After studying philosophy at the Universitat de Barcelona, the end of the Spanish Civil War led him first to Paris, then to Cuba and Santiago de Chile, and finally to the U.S.A, where he settled permanently in 1949 and where he developed a long career as professor and researcher at Bryn Mawr College until his retirement as professor emeritus in 1981. He was a visiting professor at many American and European universities, and was appointed Doctor Honoris Causa by several of these institutions. He is the author of the famous Dictionary of Philosophy and many other philosophical works, among them Being and death, Fundamentos de filosofía, Cambio de marcha en filosofía and De la materia a la razón. He was also the author of several novels. For further information:
