Summary: This volume, based on lectures given by Ortega in 1915-1916, makes available more of his translated works and is an important part of his philosophical legacy. It gives expression, in characteristically lucid and accessible prose, to Ortega's encounter with classical psychology and Husserl's phenomenology. Ortega's response is an original contribution to the psychology of perception. But, as was his habit, Ortega ranges far beyond his ostensible subject; the book may properly be characterized as
an heroic attempt to clarify the nature and grounds of truth. It develops ideas contained in his first book, Meditations on Quixote, and introduces new concepts--such as core or nodal problems in any field of inquiry--which would have lasting consequences in his work. This volume includes an appendix, "Toward a Philosophical Dictionary," which defines terms important to lectures.
