Overview

What capacity do the ethics and politics of otherness have, or could they have, in current philosophical perspectives? In the context of recent Spanish philosophy, the work of Gabriel Bello Reguera has confronted the ethical-political challenge which demands taking otherness seriously. He has developed his academic career at Laguna University as a professor of moral philosophy, and there are three fundamental turning points in his development as a philosopher that are related to each other. The first we can derive from the impact of reading the work of neopragmatist Richard Rorty, who influenced his critique of the fundamental authority of the philosophical tradition and aroused his interest in narrative linked to conversation as the edifying tool of ethics. The second is due to the influence of Emmanuel Levinas who problematizes the relationships between the ethical categories of identity, difference, and otherness. The third, and most recent, takes us to the bedrock of the analysis of immigration in tis postcolonial context as an urgent matter for a new philosophical, ethical, and political framework. In this collection, through the work of Gabriel Bello, we confront with rigueur the contextualization of the ethics and politics of otherness, we continue the discussion around these topics at the same time that we elaborate on the critical balance research must maintain between its possibilities and its limits. With all that, meanwhile, we follow the tradition of offering recognition and gratitude to our teachers. In this case, we recognize the direction of teacher and researcher Professor Gabriel Bello Reguera and his rigorous and scrupulous dedication to university life. His work, which spans four decades, is a testament to how philosophy in the context of Spain, after abandoning the wasteland created by Francoism, participates in the current transnational debates, such as those in which the ethics and politics of otherness pose inevitable challenges. We have recreated the academic ritual of homage, something very central to German philosophy, like the festschrift, with the desire to bless him with the most outstanding feeling that can be had: that of a critical intellectual debate.¿Qué cabida tienen, o pueden tener, las éticas y las políticas de la alteridad en el horizonte filosófico actual? En el contexto de la filosofía española reciente, la obra de Gabriel Bello Reguera (Dehesas, León, 1943) ha afrontado el reto ético-político que plantea el tomarse en serio la alteridad. Ha desarrollado su carrera académica en la Universidad de La Laguna como catedrático de Filosofía Moral y en su trayectoria cabría señalar tres giros fundamentales, si bien relacionados entre sí. El primero podemos derivarlo del impacto de la lectura de la obra del neopragmatista Richard Rorty, que incidió en su crítica al fundamentalismo autoritario de la tradición filosófica despertó su interés por la narratividad, ligada a la conversación, como herramienta edificante de la ética. El segundo es debido a la influencia del pensamiento de Emmanuel Lévinas, a partir del cual problematiza las relaciones entre las categorías éticas de identidad, diferencia y alteridad. El tercero, y más reciente, le llevará al terreno del análisis de las migraciones internacionales en su contexto postcolonial como acuciante asunto necesitado, precisamente, de un nuevo marco filosófico, ético y político. En este libro colectivo, a través de la obra de Gabriel Bello, afrontamos con rigor la contextualización de las éticas y las políticas de la alteridad, proseguimos la discusión en torno a estas a la vez que elaboramos, conjuntamente, un balance crítico de una línea de investigación, de sus posibilidades y límites. Con todo ello, además, seguimos la tradición de prestar reconocimiento y gratitud a nuestros maestros y a nuestras maestras. En este caso, reconocemos la trayectoria docente e investigadora del Profesor Gabriel Bello Reguera y su dedicación rigurosa y concienzuda
