The Josep Ferrater Mora Foundation takes pride in presenting the Ferrater
Mora website. The purpose of the Foundation is identical with the goal of
this site: to keep alive the thoughts and ideas as well as the artistic achievements of José Ferrater Mora and to present him as the very alive, witty, caring, and splendid human being that he was.
It is difficult to give a “typical” sampling of Ferrater Mora’s
intellectual, artistic, and creative work because his output was so
prodigious and varied, his originality so striking, and his knowledge
so vast. Furthermore, it is not easy to categorize Ferrater Mora’s
thought for he was never a part of any of the various philosophical
mainstreams that enable one to identify a philosopher’s thought with
relative ease. Similarly, it is difficult to describe Ferrater Mora’s
movies for they are marked by his vision of the world
and reflect his personal style, making it difficult to place them in
traditional categories. In attempting to give an authentic sampling of
his work, this website attemps the impossible.
Material will be added from time to time
in an effort to capture Ferrater Mora’s thoughts more
faithfully, to show the development of his ideas, and to correct any
commentaries and criticisms from people who knew
Ferrater Mora or his work will also be added. This website is;
therefore, and will be, a continuing effort.
Special thanks to Sandra H. Conder and Marta Masergas for their meticulous work on this site.
