By André Comte-Sponville,Carolina Meloni,Julio Díaz

«La fe salva, luego miente, decía Nietzsche. El materialismo es más difícil. El ateo, que no cree más que en l. a. naturaleza, sólo puede constatar que l. a. naturaleza es amoral. [...] Pero entonces, ¿para qué l. a. virtud? ¿Y por qué resistir a lo peor? Absurdamente virtuoso o lógicamente malvado, el ateo sólo puede elegir, aparentemente, entre una ethical sin razón y una razón sin ethical. Epicuro o Sade: los angeles virtud, diría Kant, está de lado del primero; pero los angeles lógica, del segundo. Y sin duda el materialista puede elegir. Pero, al no poder pensar l. a. elección que ha hecho de sí mismo, debe a cada instante sufrirse como un destino y aceptarse en l. a. virtud o en l. a. falta. Helo aquí, hecho entre los hechos. Incapaz de juzgarse no le queda sino vivir.»

Vivir, segundo libro de l. a. obra magna de Comte-Sponville, termina el proyecto iniciado con El mito de Ícaro, título inaugural de l. a. colección Teoría y crítica.

En estas páginas presentamos el volumen que cierra los angeles obra más ambiciosa y significativa de su autor, Tratado de la
desesperanza y l. a. felicidad. los angeles apuesta de Comte-Sponville consiste en devolver a los angeles filosofía su auténtico sentido. Un sentido que, lejos de los juegos verbales de moda hace unos años y lejos, asimismo, de l. a. mera y estéril erudición, debe centrarse en el arte de vivir y de pensar que desde antiguo recibió el nombre de sabiduría. Sabiduría materialista y, por ello mismo, irreligiosa, que encuentra en l. a. crítica de las ilusiones l. a. alegre desesperanza por l. a. que los angeles felicidad se hace pensable y posible.

By Lev Vygotsky

«Hay que leer Psicología del arte en dos niveles: como psicología del arte y como psicología del arte. [...] Al comparar el libro de Vygotsky con otros textos sobre arte de los primeros años veinte percibimos de inmediato su excepcionalidad. En él, su autor interroga a las formas clásicas de l. a. literatura: l. a. fábula, l. a. novela y las tragedias de Shakespeare. Pero su atención no se centra en las controversias por aquel entonces de moda. [...] El gran problema que se plantea reviste un significado más amplio y genérico: una creación artística ¿qué es lo que hace?, ¿qué los angeles convierte en obra de arte? Éste es, en realidad, el problema estético capital, y no podemos ignorarlo si queremos ponderar el verdadero valor de una novedad surgida en el mundo del arte. En opinión del autor, al analizar l. a. estructura de una obra de arte uno debe recrear los angeles respuesta, los angeles actividad interna a l. a. que dicha obra da pie. Este concepto permitió a Vygotsky internarse en los secretos del valor perdurable de las grandes obras artísticas o descubrir esa fuerza en virtud de los angeles cual una epopeya griega o una tragedia shakesperiana siguen, en palabras de Marx, “suministrándonos goce artístico y, en ciertos sentidos, sirviéndonos como norma y modelo inalcanzable”.» De l. a. introducción de A.
