Item description for Mira por dónde by Fernando Savater...

With a mixture of tenderness, irony, melancholy, and a sense of humor, this Spanish philosopher tells the story of what he has done with his life, or better yet, what life has done with him. This book includes his childhood in San Sebastian, the happiest stage of his life; the memories of his adolescence, up until the death of Franco; and his political commitments of today. In this unique work, Savater reflects upon the journey of his life, conscious that one cannot reveal it all.

Description in Spanish:

Escribir tu autobiografa? Pero no eres demasiado joven?. Fernando Savater reconoce que le encanta este reproche, pues significa que todava le queda algo para lo que no es demasiado mayor; aunque ganarse el piropo le haya costado escribir un volumen de memorias. Con una mezcla de ternura, irona, melancola, acidez y sentido del humor, el filsofo relata la historia de su vida, o ms bien lo que la vida ha hecho conmigo, como l prefiere describirlo.

La primera parte se ocupa de su infancia en San Sebastin, la etapa ms feliz de su vida, que llega hasta los doce aos cuando su familia se traslad a Madrid. La segunda recoge sus recuerdos de adolescencia y primera juventud, hasta la muerte de Franco cuando Savater contaba veintiocho aos. La tercera parte abarca hasta hoy mismo, y se centra en su compromiso poltico, pues hacer poltica cuando la democracia est amenazada es precisamente la primera obligacin de una conciencia sana. El autor se explaya en sus gustos, sus aficiones y sus preferencias, porque como l dice estamos unidos a este mundo y a la vida por cuanto aprobamos, no por nuestra capacidad de detestar. Las lecturas de infancia, las carreras de caballos, los filsofos que siempre le acompaan o los lugares y las personas que ama forman parte de esta historia.

En esta obra nica, cargada de saber y sentimiento, el autor mira los tramos del camino recorrido, consciente de que uno no lo puede contar todo de s mismo: no refiero toda la verdad, pero creo que lo que digo es bastante verdadero siempre.
