  • Miguel Illan
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 80)


Maria Zambrano was born in Vélez-Málaga (Málaga) in 1904. Her father, Blas Zambrano, a teacher by profession, was to play a significant part in influencing her, along with her close friend, the poet Antonio Machado. In 1924 she moved to Madrid where she studied philosophy and attended classes given by Ortega y Gasset, Xavier Zubiri and Garcia Morente. A staunch supporter of the Republic, she went into exile after the end of the Civil War. After a long exodus through Mexico, Cuba, Paris, Rome and other places, she returned to Spain where she received the Cervantes Prize for Literature (1988). She died in Madrid in 1996.
