María Zambrano: Pathways to Poetic Reason

Poetic reason constitutes María Zambrano’s greatest contribution to the intellectual history. Standing at the intersection between philosophy, literature, mysticism, poetic reason is, first and foremost, Zambrano’s answer to the crisis of Western thought and civilization. But what is poetic reason? How does it work? Did Zambrano always make poetic reason? What does making poetic reason mean? These are some of the questions we will address in the course of these two sessions in order to gain an understanding of what poetic reason is and how it works.

The sessions will be in English. No prior knowledge is required. I look forward to seeing you there.

Session 1. “The Horizon of Poetic Reason”

Contrary what the title may suggest at first glance, poetic reason is neither a form of philosophy nor of poetry. So what is it? This first session will try to answer this question by discussing the background, aims and key features of poetic reason.

Session 2. “Poetic Reason: Some Key Readings”

In this session, we will take forward what we learnt about what poetic reason seeks and how it works and we will use it to help us interpret some selected short passages of María Zambrano’s texts, where we can see poetic reason in action.

Bridges of exile

27th September 2019 Riverside Museum, Glasgow: https://www.explorathon.co.uk/glasgow/ 

This exhibition stems from an ongoing research and photographic project focussed on the famous Spanish Republican Exile Maria Zambrano.

Zambrano’s most original contribution to the 20th century history of ideas is her poetic reason; an alternative rationality from which to escape the pitfalls of Western reason.

Halfway between poetry, philosophy and mysticism, the building blocks of Zambrano’s poetic reason are symbolism and metaphor. This is why images offer an appropriate gateway into this type of rationality. 

Through a series of photographs and the creation of an online glossary, the research team is exploring the key words and concepts which vertebrate Zambrano’s poetic reason. The full set of images can be accessed here.

This exhibition explores the concept of exile by focusing on one of these keywords: puente, bridge. Bridges help us connect two spaces and the people inhabiting those spaces. At the same time, bridges only exist precisely because there is a separation between them. 

Our society today continues to face the challenges brought about by numerous forms of displacement, including exile. This series of Scottish bridges is designed to prompt us to ask questions about society, identity and belonging.

The photographs are organised in pairs, inviting us to reflect on two opposing experiences, both related to exile: inclusion and exclusion.

Do you recognise these bridges? Where are they?

How do you feel when you look at these photographs? Do you see inclusion or exclusion? In which ones? Why?
