José Ortega y Gasset: What is Philosophy?

15 October 2019


I acquire no understanding of myself except as I take account of objects, of the surroundings. I do not think unless I think of things–therefore on finding myself I always find a world confronting me. Insofar as subjectivity and thought are concerned, I find myself as a dual fact whose other part is the world. Therefore the basic and undeniable fact is not my existence, but my coexistence with the world.
