Riassunto: Meditations on Hunting is the most quoted book in sporting literature. It is the finest work on the essence and ethics of hunting. Today when both hunting and fishing are often condemned, Meditations takes on an even greater significance. Ortega points out that life is a dynamic interchange between man and his surroundings. He explains that hunting is part of man's very nature, that "hunting is a universal and impassioned sport...it is the purest form of human happiness. The essence of hunting or fishing involves a complete code of ethics of the most distinguished design. The sportsman who accepts the sporting code of ethics keeps his commandments in the greatest solitude with no witnesses or audience other than the sharp peaks of the mountain, the stern oak, and the passing animal."
Sinossi: MEDITATIONS ON HUNTING is a broad examination of the condition of life. "The life that we are given has its minutes numbered, and in addition it is given to us empty...we have to fill it on our own, that is we have to occupy it one way or another...." Ortega y Gasset also discusses the evolution of hunting and carefully examines its implications to the hunter--its total absorption of mind and body, its atavistic reverberations, its animalistic fulfillments and its tonic immersion in nature.
