Abstract:

This research is about the different uses of the word “person” that could be found in Unamuno´s masterpiece “Del sentimiento trágico de la vida”. As a result, we obtain a definition of person related to the difference between “person” and “individual”, the attributes of the person (particularity, will, consciousness, subjectivity, life, community, pain, purpose and immortality), and the most important relationship modes which are faith and love. It also outlines a way to acces God, who is thought as a person as well

Key words:

Unamuno, Personalism, Person, Individual, Faith, Love, God
