This is a manipulated interview. The first version was 20 pages long. And the interviewee was asked to be brief, because he was supposed to be an author whose Tetralogy of Exemplarity is among the best-selling and most quoted books in not very exemplary times. After chainsawing the original and calling the incontinent to order, this is the distillate of an hour-long talk. The primordial text has another price.
We are all natively philosophers because we have an interpretation of the world. Then an extravagant minority writes books of philosophy, which is conceptual literature. It is born of a literary vocation. Choosing the concept, the verse or the novel is only a question of communicative strategy.
We need from time to time a vacation from reality, to suspend its laws and create the illusion of a bloodless and painless world. That is humor. It pours sweet lightness into reality, which enslaves us, and makes life more bearable.
To my brothers I say to provoke them that they are lucky to be able to be humble without lying. The scientist knows if he has found the truth by experiment, the literary man only knows it by the consensus of others. He needs to know the opinion of others. Vanity is necessary, although it must be educated.

Imitation is one of those fundamental ideas of Western culture which, like that of Being, runs through all European thought from one end to the other. From the Greeks to the eighteenth century, the theory of imitation, in the form of imitation of Nature, imitation of the Ancients or imitation of the Platonist Ideas, enjoyed a universal and fruitful acceptance in all kinds of arts and sciences.

Aquiles en el gineceo tells the subjective process of formation of exemplarity. It is the second book of the “Tetralogy of exemplarity”, composed also by Imitation and experience, Exemplarity, and Exemplarity in the gynoecium.
Javier Gomá presents us in this book a philosophical sainete and an intimate drama where he not only exposes with mastery the fundamental elements of any dramatic text, but also confers them an important philosophical load. And it is that the author conceives the philosophical

The cosmos is a gigantic graveyard of extinct civilizations. This may be a false hypothesis, but it does not change the outlook for the future. The general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics agree that the universe is moving towards gravitational collapse: dispersion, cold, darkness, non-being. What is man’s role in this tragedy? None. He is only an irrelevant speck, a phenomenon without transcendence.
The greatness of man crumbles in the corruption of the grave. So understood Emil Cioran, one of the great apostles of nihilism. If nothing will last, if Beethoven, Shakespeare and Leonardo da Vinci travel towards non-being, everything is meaningless. Nothingness is the cruel queen of the cosmos. Against this hypothesis, Javier Gomá postulates “an indefinitely extended mortality” guaranteed by a passive and hidden God, but highly compassionate and who has not abandoned us to our fate.
Spinoza advises not to rely on hope, but on reason. Only in this way can we preserve our self and endure misfortune with dignity. On the other hand, holiness or “super-exemplarity” urges us to live for others. Lévinas describes holiness as “non-concupiscent love”. Loving without demanding reciprocity. It is a goal opposed to the economy of the self, which can lead us to the immolation of our own existence. Can one be happy dying for others? It is not likely. That is why happiness belongs to the realm of hope. Only God can provide a supplement of life where virtue and happiness coincide. It is what Kant called “summum bonum”. It is not a right, but a conquest. We do not have the right to be happy. We must make ourselves worthy and deserving of being happy.
