Xavier Zubiri Foundation, a private research centre created in 1989 to safeguard the intellectual legacy of the Spanish philosopher Xavier Zubiri. The centre carries out research, teaching and dissemination, always in connection with the Spanish and international academic world. The Foundation brings together professionals, academics, researchers and students specializing not only in philosophy but also in the medical, physical, biological and human sciences in general.
Research. The FXZ is characterized by generating high academic research activities. It produces innovative research, both in the reinterpretation of Zubiri's thought and in the generation of original thought. The most important activity is our Xavier Zubiri Research Seminar, created by Zubiri himself in 1971. Learn about our current research activities.
Teaching. We also offer both face-to-face and distance learning courses and seminars throughout the year, covering a wide range of subjects from metaphysics, through the philosophy of religion and socio-politics, to bioethics. Learn about our current offer.
Publication. Since 1989, thanks to the research team and university professors convened by Diego Graciaour academic director, have been published around 30 books of Xavier Zubiri. These works, in order to ensure a wide national and international dissemination, have been co-published between Alianza Editorial and XZF.
