This article comes from my exhibition “Currency of Jaume Balmes” Philosopher’s Tribute to Vic held at the Foundation Balmesiana February 2011. Not intended to be a scientific investigation. He just wants to contribute something to the knowledge of the personality and thought of Jaume Balmes. He also wants to show, through his own words or those thinkers who know him well and know the current term of your way to address some philosophical issues. Of particular interest is the vision of Joan Maragall on Balmes, a true “master of thinking”.
