Abstract

In this article, I provide an overview of the work of Bernard Suits, a United States-born philosopher hardly known in Spanish-speaking philosophical circles. I analyze his views on the two central themes that occupied him during his philosophical career: the search for definitions and the question concerning the good life. However, I argue that throughout his work, from his master’s thesis defended in 1950 to his posthumously published works, Suits gave preference to the second theme. This interpretation contrasts with the reception of his work in Anglo-American academic circles, where his definitional proposal has been prioritized over his musings on the good life.
