Original Title: Humà, més humà

Apparently simple questions, such as What’s wrong with you?, What’s your name?, or Where are you from? take us, bit by bit, to the deepest centre of our souls, to the place where can be found the wound produced by the four essential infinitudes: life, death, you and the world. We shall never be human enough: if any horizon makes sense, it is to manage to be more human. It is not a question, then, of going beyond what is human, as Nietzsche claimed, but of intensifying and deepening what is most human. Josep Maria Esquirol shows us how, out of this furrow in human beings, there can emerge the most beneficial action, which can direct and strengthen us because, without creating confusion, it knows how to join weight and lightness, day and night, heaven and earth, the present and hope… Human, More than Human, is a truly philosophical essay written in a language that is as understandable and precise as it is evocative.

Praises

“Esquirol’s writing is a joy!”

“Having a new essay by Josep Maria Esquirol in the bookshops is a feast. Like every time that any one of our philosophers tries to set out on a journey, accompanying us in thought”
Xavier Graset, El Punt Avui

“Esquirol’s works have an enormous power of attraction which comes both from their content and from the evocative force of his poetic style”
Sagrario Fernández-Prieto, La Razón
