Marciano Guerrero

Author Marciano Guerreroabout this book: From my adolescence to my golden years and calmed old age, the reading of philosophy has always been a happy companion. My first serious encounter with philosophical ideas occurred when a friend lent me a novel —Nausea— published by Jean-Paul Sartre, the French philosopher.

Fresh on my mind is still the memory of that afternoon of my youth when I read the novel from beginning to end on a bench in La Recoleta square in Lima, Perú.

I thought then, "What a fantastic novel! I will have to buy my own copy because this book must be studied. I must study philosophy." Although the years have inexorably passed, never have I ceased to read philosophy.

As I immersed myself in the readings of philosophy, I learned may lesson that were valuable in my development. Ciro Alegría, the Peruvian writer published a book whose title has always fascinated me: "The world is wide and alien." Echoing Alegría, I will say: Philosophy is broad and alien—but we must travel its amplitude, and learn! The ideas presented in this book have made me a productive human being; they have enriched my life,both materially and spiritually.
