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.
