The concept of consciousness in the philosophical and literary work of Miguel de Unamudo (Master thesis)

Γρετσίστας, Θεόδωρος Θ.


The aim of this master’s thesis is the study of the concept of consciousness in the philosophical and literary work of Unamuno. In the Introduction the historical-social-political conditions of the era during which Unamuno acted are shown and the influence of important philosophers on his thinking is cited briefly. In the First Chapter there is a description of the circumstances under which the concept of consciousness in the philosophical thinking of Unamuno “was founded” and a reference is made to the way in which the Basque philosopher interprets human consciousness in general. In the Second Chapter there is an investigation of the way in which consciousness functions through aesthetic components, as it is perceived by the author and as it emerges through the characters of his heroes. In the Third Chapter in the context of the presentation of Unamuno’s philosophical ontology, the semantic clarification of the term “human” is attempted and human nature as well as the purpose of life is analyzed. In the Fourth Chapter there is a depiction of Unamuno’s thoughts about death with emphasis on his belief in the continuation of human existence against the “logic” of death. A “Critical Overview and Conclusions” follow. The master’s thesis is completed with the listing of the Bibliography that was used and the Summary in English.
