Book Description Revista de Occidente, Madrid, 1956. Softcover. Book Condition: VG. Fifth Edition. Very Good.; En castellano.; 12mo - 7" to 7½" tall; Subjects: Civilization. Proletariat. Europe -- Civilization. Summary:The book begins: "There is one fact which, whether for good or ill, is of utmost importance in the public life of Europe at the present moment. This fact is the accession of the masses to complete social power." Who are the masses? Oretga saw them as the group of people disposed to mediocrity, opposed to excellence, and inclined towards conformed thinking. Agglomerate d, they wield a frightful amount of power that we see today as they assertively lay claim to a myriad of demands and "rights." The masses' revolt is nothing less than a rebellion against any and all forms of superiority and thus seeks to obliterate the very concept of excellence. Bookseller Inventory # 121361

Book Description Madrid, Revista de Occidente, 1929. 8vo. Uncut in original printed wrappers. Spine defective at bottom w. a bit of loss. Minor loss to upper capital. A bit of brownspotting. Lacking front free end-paper. 322, (11) pp. The important first edition, first issue (1929 on title-page and copyright-page) of José Ortega y Gasset's foreshadowing main work, which analyzes the power and actions of the masses in society.José Ortega y Gasset (1883 - 1955) was a Spanish philosopher, originally schooled by Jesuit priests in Malaga. He studied philosophy in Madrid, where he received a doctorate and afterwards continued his studies at several universities in Germany, where he became influenced by Neo-Kantianism. In 1909 he became professor of Psychology, Logic and Ethics in Madrid, and in 1929 he published the work that later made him internationally famous, his "The Revolt of the Masses".In this monumental work, which is probably ahead of its time and first becomes fully appreciated much later, José Ortega y Gasset sets out to examine the political and social crisis of Europe. He traces this crisis back to democracy, which has the virtue of bestowing equality upon equals, but the vice of also bestowing equality upon unequals. According to Ortega, the widespread distribution of social power to the masses is what lies at the root of the crisis of Western civilization; he writes critically about the "mass-men", describing the primitivism and barbarianism that he sees in these men that constitute the masses in society, and defines them as those, for whom the specific target is the bourgeois educated man, who falsely thinks that he owns, knows and governs all and everyone. The "mass-man", however, does not belong to any specific social class, and he is here analyzed as the certain type of European, that he is, who behaves in a certain respect towards the specific civilization, into which he has been born. He is an average man unwilling to demand anything from himself, who considers himself the equal of everyone else. Thus, the "revolt of the masses" is viewed as the outcome of "hyperdemocracy". By "hyperdemocracy", Ortega means a form of government which allows power to be less evenly distributed throughout society, leading to the degradation and fall of culture. Ortega sees (civilized) human society as something that is per definition aristocratic, and so, a society, in which the masses rule, is a society devoid of civilization, -a society in which the mass destroys everything that is different, individual, select, excellent and qualified. This "mass" constitutes an un-intellectual core of society that drags the rest of society with it in its demand for equality, -equality by the lowest common denominator. It is not surprising that this seminal work with its surprising theses, which were probably not fully understood at the time of its appearance, becomes more and more important as we proceed into the 21st century. Not only society as such can be viewed under the scope of Ortega's "hyperdemocracy", but society-bearing institutions such as universities fall under the same spell, and for many intellectuals of the universities, not only throughout Europe but also in America, Ortega's "The Revolt of the Masses" has come to provide the explanation for how the universities have developed into centers for mediocre learning that seem to be governed by the idea of equality and toleration on the expense of excellence and cultivation of reason and intellect. José Ortega y Gasset was not only an important and influential intellectual thinker, he also directly influenced society and politics in Spain. Under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera (1923-1936), he led the republican intellectual opposition, and when King Alfonso XIII was overthrown in 1931, he played a not insignificant role. He was also a leader of the parliamentary group of intellectuals "In the service of the republic", and he became the civil governor of Madrid as well as the founder of the Ins.
