Nicolás Gómez Dávila

Colombian writer and philosopher

Nicolás Gómez Dávila (18 May 1913 – 17 May 1994) was a prominent Colombian philosopher. Gómez Dávila's fame began to spread only in the last few years before his death, particularly by way of German translations of his works. He was one of the most radical critics of modernity whose work consists almost entirely of aphorisms which he called "escolios" ("glosses").
