MAROCO-DOS-SANTOS, Emanuel José. The concepts of goodness and work in Unamunian ethics. Co-herencia [online]. 2017, vol.14, n.26, pp.207-233. ISSN 1794-5887.

In this study, we seek to determine the two axes of Unamunian ethics, which are linked to the “I-intimate” and “I-public” anthropological dualism, and which could be condensed into the concepts of “goodness” and “work.” Unamuno, as heir to romanticism and existentialism, considered that what was fundamental, in axiological terms, was for individuals to learn to “be good” and not to “ [merely] do good,” because only through the purity of feeling, that is, of “ethical goodness”, the “moral subject” could become a “person” through his “works”. In this regard, the relation of Unamunian ethics to “occupations” is decisive, since each “individual” through his “profession” is bound to mold his “being”.
