Roman Garmendia Muruamendiaraz

Soraluze (Gipuzkoa), 1957.

Having been a deeply committed Christian from a very early age, he gradually lost his faith at the age of 14 as he began to read Freud’s works and discovered a vocation to become a psychoanalyst.

According to Freud, it was necessary to study medicine to do this, so he studied medicine and in the meantime read the main Marxist authors, until he became completely immersed in them. But reading one of Nietzsche’s works enabled him to get to know the Graeco-Latin classical authors and his attention was grabbed above all by Homer’s Iliad.

In Philosophy, too, with the bibliography that he obtained from his readings of Nietzsche, he studied on his own and concentrated mainly on Goethe. Without realising it, the war phenomenon gradually became universal in Garmendia’s afflicted spirit.

But after doing the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and reading the main work on logotherapy, he experienced a “crisis” and gradually regained his Christian faith. At the same time he decided to take an Open University (UNED) degree in Philosophy, and this discipline enabled him to learn what becoming universal consisted of. He understood that it was impossible for the war phenomenon to become universal, insofar as it is an existential particularity, and that was the starting point for his first book.

Today, he is slowly pursuing his Philosophy studies at the Open University and at the same time, as far as he can, is clarifying and improving “his own philosophy.”
