Power to the West! --In Spanish, “Adelante Occidente!”-- is a
much-needed statement. It holds the key to the solution of one of the greatest ideological problems of the last centuries: the conflict between the individual and society. While most of the thinkers maintain incompatible positions on that subject, proposing to subordinate the rights of either part to the other, Gómez-Zimmerman finds in the notion of the social dialectical pole a special way to assert the primacy of the synthesis, which at the same time keeps the person as the fundamental object of right. A truly remarkable achievement.
Gómez-Zimmerman’s political vision is never utilitarian or pragmatical. Even the most concrete references are full of ideological, philosophical and ethical concerns. This makes his work an invaluable one, especially in a time when reason is giving way to vested interests and polls. A book of prophetic and far reaching significance for the defenders of individual freedoms.
Taking advantage of the technological advances, the third edition of this work was intended to be a permanent one. However, since the fundamental tenets of the previous editions remain unchanged, I have decided to limit the revision of errors on additional things, and to criteria that I left obscure or incomplete which I consider the most relevant ones and which are prone to be misunderstood. In the work I am now dedicated: Objective Trascendental Investigations, as its title suggests, I will approach the fundamental tenets and related subjects within the framework of absolute criteria of truth.
