Autobiography, Philosophy and Writing: The Unamuno Case [Autobiografia, filosofia y escritura: el caso Unamuno]

Flórez Miguel, Miguel

This paper analyzes the change of Unamuno’s philosophy from his work Diario Intimo, which is the text where the 1897 crisis is reflected. Unamuno leaves behind his first philosophy, formulated on the "scientific reason" of modernity; and turn into philosophy which sets aside "science" and moves toward "literature." In this new philosophy, autobiography comes to the foreground and writing becomes especially relevant as the tool used by Unamuno to build his destiny as "autoliterary," which, by the way of "literary figures," devises his own identity. In this framework, Diario Intimo, Nicodemo el Fariseo and some letters are analyzed with the aim of establishing the textual differences between diary, letter and conference.
