In the hope not only of introducing the thought of Ferrater Mora to English speaking people who may be unfamiliar with it, but also with the desire to produce a more complete picture of Ferrater Mora’s creativity and the scope of his work to readers who are already familiar with his ideas, this site presents some excerpts from Ferrater Mora’s published books and essays, a small sampling of his artistic creations--both photographs and movies--as well as information about his teaching and other interests that perhaps has not been so readily available as his publications. This site, then, should provide a good starting point for those who wish to learn about Ferrater Mora, for those who want to pursue his work further or for those who would like to investigate a particular aspect of his creativity.
