El tiempo de la promesa

An incisive and hopeful book about the power of the word to reclaim the present and the future.

Do you remember the last promise you made or that was made to you? This essay opens with this question, in which the philosopher Marina Garcés explores the concept of promise.We live in a society terrified of the future, obsessed with predicting and projecting, controlling and planning. But who dares, today, to promise anything?

This book shows the historical, philosophical and literary keys to the power of the promise and its current fragility.The promise, the author tells us, can be a form of rebellion that introduces the battle for the value of the word in an uncertain present and a threatened future. An incisive and hopeful text.

«One of the leading public intellectuals in Catalonia for decades. Garcés urges us not to surrender to the posthumous condition and to keep thinking of emancipation as a possible horizon» (Joan Bordeus, El Núvol).

Marina Garcés

MARINA GARCÉS (Barcelona, 1973) is a philosopher and professor at the University of Zaragoza. Her thought is a statement of commitment to life as a common problem. This is why she develops her philosophy both within and beyond the classroom as part of a wide-ranging experiment with ideas, learning and ways of intervening in today’s world. She is the author of several books, including Un mundo común [A World in Common] (Bellaterra, 2013), Filosofía inacabada [Unfinished Philosophy] (Galaxia Gutenberg, 2015), Fuera de clase [Beyond the Classroom] (Arcadia, 2016) and Ciudad Princesa [Princesa City] (Galaxia Gutenberg, 2018). Since 2002, she’s been a driving force behind the Espai en Blanc project.
