Chapter
This chapter by Elena Laurenzi, starts with the reconstruction of the political and social project of two sisters-in-law: Harriet Lathrop Dunham (alias Etta de Viti de Marco) who we have already met, and Carolina de Viti de Marco (1863–1965). The partial portrait of the former, outlined in the second chapter of the book, is now completed with the a...

Il legame con la politica è un aspetto nodale della filosofia e della biografia di María Zambrano che è rimasto piuttosto disatteso dalla letteratura critica. È Zambrano stessa a dichiarare che la sua giovinezza «fu “la” politica», riferendosi alla propria militanza per la promozione della Repubblica e alla propria partecipazione alla Guerra Civile...
Article
This essay takes as its starting point the shared discipleship that linked María Zambrano and Rosa Chacel to the philosopher José Ortega y Gasset, in order to analyse their implicit – but determined – distancing from their mentor with regard to their views on love and male–female relations. The analysis focuses on essays from the 1930s and 1940s in...

The paper aims at exploring some of the close correspondences between the work of Iris Murdoch and María Zambrano, and at revealing both the connections and divergences which can be interpreted against the background of the common influence of Weil on their respective work. In particular, it analyses their common critique to the philosophical and p...

Through the contrast between the two women thinkers, the essay depicts two different ways to...

En diálogo con la bibliografía crítica existente sobre Christine de Pizan y mediante una lectura atenta de La cité des dames, este artículo aboga por la consideración de esta autora como precursora feminista, subrayando el valor político de la querelle des femmes, la incipiente teoría feminista contenida en La cité des dames y la actualidad de much...

El estudio toma como referencia el ensayo “El payaso y la filosofía” para establecer una comparación entre Zambrano y Nietzsche sobre el tema de la risa. Cotejando las metáforas del payaso y la del funámbulo en las cuales ambos autores resumen respectivamente las características del filósofo, se evidencian las similitudes y las distancias entre ell...

Escrito en marzo de 2002, tras un viaje en Pakistán entre los refugiados afganos, este ensayo quiere documentar la labor realizada por las mujeres de RAWA (Revolutionary Association of Women in Afghanistan) y sus luchas en defensa de la laicidad, la libertad y la democracia. No es exactamente un diario de viaje. Más bien se trata de un recorrido de...
Article
‘A small block of nervous tissue left from several days, hardening in Müller fluid alone or mixed with osmic acid. Because the histologist was distracted, or because of a scientist’s curiosity, it was immersed in a bath of silver nitrate. One sections the block, dehydrates the sections, clears them, and examines them. Surprising sight! Against a pe...
