Terricabras Nogueras, Josep-Maria; Cohn, PriscillaOften we have to pay the price for the fact of not belonging to a specific school of thought or for not being able to be easily identifiable. The danger that faces an independent thinker is that their thinking could go “down the drain”, as they say: their writings could be ignored or insufficiently taken into account and unappreciated. Ferrater had present this possibility and accepted it: He wanted his work to be read, but he was not disposed to compromise his ideas only to gain more readers or earn more.n nThe volume that is presented by the initiative of the Cátedra Ferrater Mora of the University of Girona shows that Ferrater has not had to pay the price that threatens the independent thinker, perhaps because his Dictionary of Philosophy has obtained such widespread recognition. An examination of the contents of this volume does not only reveal a great deal about the thinking of Ferrater, although perhaps not in the line that might be expected. The great variety of topics discussed show a diverse group of thinkers from different generations, different countries, speakers of different languages, which underline many different aspects of the thinking of Ferrater: his ontology, psychology and ethics, his use of history, the treatment that he gives to the mind, his notion of “judgement”, his preoccupation for style, his early development in Chile, some of the similarities or differences with the thinking of Dewey and G.E.Moore, etc.
