Eusebi Colomer

Eusebi Colomer i Pous (Girona 1923 - Sant Cugat del Vallès 1997) was a philosopher and theologian, a member of the Society of Jesus since 1941. A thinker with wide-ranging interests, he took part, from a philosophical perspective, in some of the great theological debates of his time: he was, for example, the great disseminator of the work of Teilhard de Chardin in Catalonia and played an incisive role in the reflection on contemporary atheism and on the so-called “radical theology”. However, his deep and sustained passion was the history of philosophy, because he thought that one cannot make philosophy without making history: philosophy for him was nothing but the updating of the dialogue with the great thinkers that has become possible since the history of philosophy.
