Miguel de Unamuno

Unamuno, Miguel de (1864–1936), Spanish philosopher and writer, rector of Salamanca University from 1900 to his death. Influenced by Kierkegaard, he explored the faith-reason conflict and the desire for immortality in The Tragic Sense of Life in Men and Nations (1913) and in essays and novels, such as Mist (1914). “The Christ of Velézquez” (1920) is his best-known poem.
