An imposing scholarly Delirium And Destiny ($59.50; paper $19.95; Jan.; 256 pp.; 0-7914-4019-2; paper 0-7914-4020-6): An imposing scholarly edition of an autobiographical novel written in the early 1950s but not published until 1989, at the death of its author (b. 1904), a well-known philosopher and disciple of Spanish master Ortega y Gasset. It’s a complex paean to individualism, set in the years immediately preceding the Spanish Civil War and interestingly divided into an exploration of “Destiny” (formative social circumstance) and a series of “Deliriums” (more personal thoughts, feelings, even fantasies). An only marginally fictional work, which will be of most interest to scholars of Ortega and of Zambrano’s more theoretical works.
