BARRIENTOS RASTROJO, José. The lost reality rooted on the fallen of symbols. Alpha [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.9-29. ISSN 0718-2201.

This paper aims to analyze the loss of the symbol today, by means of a dialogue on the foundations of hermeneutics and philosophy of culture. Then, it will expose the transfer from an ontological to a pragmatic sense of symbol. Finally, it will propose a path to recuperation, by focusing on the figure of the word and the need to rescue its aletheica, that is, (1) by defending that the truth is more than ‘adequatio’ between the thing (res ) and intellect and (2) by recovering the sacred sources of body and word.

Keywords : symbol; hermeneutics; experience; word; ontology.
