Andrés Ortiz-Osés, in attitude of serenity

Andrés Ortiz-Osés (Tardienta, 1943) is a Spanish philosopher. He studied theology in Comillas and Rome and then moved to The Institute of Philosophy in Innsbruck where he earned a Ph.D in hermeneutics.

In Innsbruck he attended the lessons of Gadamer and Coreth. He was a member of the Eranos group, inspired by C.G. Jung. Other members of Eranos have been Joseph Campbell, Karl Kerenyi, Mircea Eliade, Erich Neumann, Gilbert Durand, and James Hillman.

He has been the main introductor of Jungian theories in the Spanish and Latin American intellectual scene. Currently he is a professor of hermeneutics at the University of Deusto in Bilbao. He is the author of more than thirty books and is the founder of the symbolic hermeneutics, a philosophical trend that gave a symbolic twist to north European hermeneutics.
