Literary Criticism
The article presents a literary criticism of the preface to the second edition of the book "La vida de la razón" (The Life of Reason) by George Santayana. The criticism notes that, in the preface, Santayana confirms that the second edition constitutes more a change in style than in philosophy relative to the first edition. It mentions that Santayana explains that while the focus of the first edition was on reason, nature is emphasized in the second.
