By Clara Janés

María Zambrano (1904-1991) se plantea desde sus primeros escritos l. a. relación entre filosofía y poesía, consolidando, junto al concepto de «razón vital», de Ortega y Gasset, el de «razón poética». A través de su aproximación a l. a. expresión lírica y l. a. mística, los angeles pensadora hace tomar cuerpo en el texto a las palabras de Wittgenstein: «la filosofía no es una doctrina, sino una actividad». En efecto, su escritura se constituye en un ente vivo y en movimiento. Ese carácter autogenésico se debe a las captaciones de l. a. «razón poética», que abarcan los angeles rebeldía humana, los angeles ebriedad ritual, los vislumbres del misterio y los angeles disposición a transmitir el secreto y, por tanto, los angeles voz y los angeles palabra encarnada, unidas a l. a. música, que, nos cube, es «la que vence al silencio antes que el logos». Cuando Clara Janés conoce a María Zambrano, ha reflexionado mucho sobre estas cuestiones y se siente afianzada e impulsada a profundizar. Resultado de sus conversaciones y lecturas son los textos recogidos en este libro.

This different -in as far as this different is to be present in Kristeva's
