Francesc Pujols

Francesc Pujols (Barcelona 1882 - Martorell 1962), was a multifaceted and self-taught thinker and writer. He made Catalonia and the Catalans his subject and his life. He was a poet, art critic, prose writer, lecturer, lyricist and above all a thinker. This Symposium has sought to deepen the study of the thought of Francesc Pujols, as expressed in his texts.

In 1918, Francesc Pujols published the Concepte General de la Ciència Catalana, in which he established the existence of an autochthonous philosophical current, initiated by Ramon Llull and continued by Ramon Sibiuda; this work includes his famous sentence according to which the Catalans are exceptional beings because they are sons of the land of truth.
