Notes

Abstract: First and foremost, this is an exploration of Miguel de Unamuno�s hypotheses as put forth in his essays and literary works. Since I wanted to understand what Unamuno did to the concept of the absolute, I first talk of philosophers like Plato and Descartes who defended absolute others: including ideas, the soul, body, mind, matter, and God. I also talk of Hegel because Unamuno was deeply influenced by his Science of turning substance, which is seen as absolute, into a concept free of presuppositions. The first part ends with an explanation of why Unamuno tells you to see God not as the absolute other but as a will that creates just as the self creates. In the second part of my thesis, I clarify why Unamuno does not believe merely in creating concepts but also in creating works where truth will come alive. I also analyze some of Unamuno�s literary works to show why Don Quixote is his most powerful influence. Ultimately, I wanted to resurrect Unamuno�s spirit as he resurrected Don Quixote�s spirit to inspire others.
