    La Galatea fue la primera novela de Cervantes, en 1585. Forma parte del subgénero pastoril (una «égloga en prosa» como define el autor), triunfante en el Renacimiento. Su primera publicación apareció cuando tenía 38 años con el título de Primera parte de La Galatea. Como en otras novelas del género (similar al de La Diana de Jorge de Montemayor), los personajes son pastores idealizados que relatan sus cuitas y expresan sus sentimientos en una naturaleza idílica (locus amoenus). La novela empezó a redactarse cuando Cervantes volvió de su cautiverio en Argel (diciembre de 1580). No tuvo mucho éxito en las librerías, en comparación con el enorme de la Diana de Montemayor y...read more

    Schopenhauer: here's when great philosophy can be somber, pessimistic, even brutal, and still resonate with a sarcastic laugh. He was among the first to contend that the universe is essentially not a rational place; in his most famous work, The World as Will and Representation, he argues that the individuals of a species do not have as much free will as is ordinarily thought, as the only Will that matters is that of the species, which is to reproduce and carry on. Schopenhauer is very well-known for his radical stance on women, aesthetics, and rhetoric; he is the author of The Art of Being Right, a playful manual designed to utterly crush one's opponent in verbal battle, and of the...read more
