Get La especie fabuladora (Spanish Edition) PDF

By Nancy Huston

El ser humano parece el único entre los seres vivos que tiene los angeles capacidad de fabular, de inventar historias. De hecho, afirma Nancy Huston en este libro, todo en nosotros es fabulación, desde lo que cada uno nos contamos a nosotros mismos sobre quiénes somos, hasta las religiones, los relatos históricos o las utopías políticas. l. a. historia de l. a. humanidad es una suma de relatos trasmitidos en el tiempo con el fin de edificar una realidad que nos sirva de certeza, de suelo donde apoyarnos, algo que nos sostenga en el mundo. Así pues, los angeles consciencia humana, ensamblada en esas ficciones, constituida por ellas, es una máquina fabulosa… e intrínsecamente fabuladora. Nancy Huston evoca asimismo los poderes de l. a. novela para celebrar los angeles diversidad que l. a. literatura puede llevar al corazón de cada uno de nosotros. Y nos conduce a una nueva y cautivadora reflexión sobre los angeles identidad, el tiempo, l. a. memoria, el lenguaje, el sentido, para con una fascinante maestría demostrar que todos somos seres hechos de ficciones.
