To anyone who is daring to understand something about the supreme model coming from and enlightening the Romanian spiritual eternity, to anyone who is trying the will to “elevate him/herself until Mihai Eminescu” — speaking in terms of Eugen Coseriu -, the book by Tudor Ghideanu represents a veritable landmark. So simply, but at the same time, so pretentiously entitled The Philosophy of Eminescn, the volume signed by our Professor from the “AlLLCuza” University of Iasi constitutes the achievement of a former thought- longing, that has been concretized, previously, through university lectures and through an ample study published in the first tome of the History of Romanian Philosophy (Editura Academiei, Bucharest, 1985). Putting in act the intention to honor a very gifted thinker of the 19″ century, and assuming the responsibility to reveal the great marks of an impressive reflection within the philosophical horizon, Tudor Ghideanu unfolds a serious hermeneutic approach in the endeavor of an integrator perspective concerning the eminescian work. It is, certainly, one of the major temptations to bring out the force of a genius for the development of the cultural movement, generally. We have to articulate the fact that this present book about Eminescu’s philosophy surpasses some important contributions due to remarkable exegetes on this topics, like Constantin Noica, Amita Bhose, Constantin Barbu, Tlic Badescu, by offering a vision of intertwining plans of metaphysics, ontology, gnoscology, theology, ethics, logic, history, social philosophy, economics; by relying on the original various work deciphered within the famous Manuscripts, poems, prose, dramas, journalistically articles of a creator who used to call himself just a “circumstantial poet”.
