Original Title: No sufrir compañía

Silence, which means more than an interruption of sounds or seeking the reverse of oral language, possesses, though it may seem contradictory, a powerful communicative dimension and a strange capacity for facilitating access into the world of the spirit, thought and the arts. It is, as much as speaking is, a form of knowledge, the key that gives access to the complexity of consciousness. From silence one may analyse another angle of human conduct, critically interpret culture and explain subtly and in quite an atypical fashion any metaphysical construction. This book, in which the wide-ranging preliminary study discusses the origins and development of spiritual and philosophical traditions of East and West, offers a painstaking selection of writings on silence, the work of the great masters of Spanish mysticism of the 16th and 17th centuries, representatives of the apogee of European spiritual literature.
