Ramón Turró (Girona 1854 - Barcelona 1926) was a biologist and philosopher and is one of the most interesting figures of the scientific panorama of the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century.
Turró was a pioneer in many things, both in scientific research itself and in methodological and organisational aspects derived from it. He stood out for his studies in microbiology, immunology and hygiene at the Barcelona Municipal Laboratory. Turró developed his philosophical meditations in close relationship with his biological research. This is confirmed above all in his theory of knowledge, which bases the origin of all knowledge on a primordial phenomenon: hunger.
