Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: Ortega y Gasset
See link to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP).
a fine SEP article on another Madrid-born contemporary of Ortega, the Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952), who gave us a very famous quote : "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" ( Life of Reason I).
Here is another favorite of mine from Santayana: "Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim."
