José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) is the most important philosopher of the 20th century and one of the most outstanding intellectuals on the European scene at the time. Along with the many topics he addressed and his many different ways of expression, he developed a true philosophical system, centered on the analysis of human life as a radical reality and the elaboration of a new concept of reason. A master of the contemporary Spanish essay and a school creator, Ortega put Spanish thinkers on the map during his time and he had a decisive influence in the Spanish-American world. He undertook multiple cultural enterprises, such as the Revista de Occidente (1923) and his numerous publications.

Gregorio Marañón (1887-1960) was a doctor, scientist, historian and humanist. His scientific and experimental work focused on the fight against infectious diseases and endocrinology, where he was a pioneer. His medical and humanistic treatments reached many different journals and were translated into numerous languages. He broadened his field of work into social and political issues by getting involved in the publication of articles about those topics without ever leaving his medical and research activities.
