0 Reseñas
"Aborda el tema del progreso y otros relativos a la crisis espiritual de su tiempo. Hombres y engranajes examina el largo camino recorrido por la cultura occidental desde el Renacimiento a impulsos de la doble influencia del dinero y de la razon, y hace un llamamiento para edificar sobre sus ruinas una nueva y vasta sintesis. Heterodoxia se ocupa con agudeza de una gran variedad de temas: la contraposicion entre masculinidad y feminidad, la imposibilidad de poner puertas academicas a los idiomas vivos, las diferencias entre verdades logicas y valores eticos, los estragos del cientifismo, etc."

Sobre el autor (2000)

Ernesto Sábato was born in Rojas, Argentina on June 24, 1911. He earned a doctorate in physics from Universidad Nacional de La Plata and worked in Paris on atomic radiation at the Joliot-Curie Laboratory. He began writing in 1941 and was a prolific essayist on subjects such as science, national culture and human rights. He wrote several novels including The Tunnel (1948), On Heroes and Tombs (1961) and The Angel of Darkness (1974). He received numerous awards including the French Legion of Honour, the Medici Prize of Italy and Spain's Cervantes Prize. He was also a painter and his works were once displayed at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. He led an investigation into crimes committed under the military dictatorship of Argentina from 1976 to 1983. The commission's reports served as the basis for prosecuting leading figures of the dictatorship after the return to democracy. He died of complications from bronchitis on April 30, 2011 at the age of 99.
