Guadalajara (Mexico), Nov 25 (EFE) .- The committed Fernando Savater, close, "sensible" and ludic was honored today at the International Book Fair (FIL) of Guadalajara, at a table in that the validity of his thought in today's world was highlighted.

The Mexican writers Jorge Volpi and Juan Villoro, as well as the editors Ricardo Cayuela (Penguin Random House) and Carlos Revés (Grupo Planeta) spoke, in the presence of Savater himself, about the philosopher's production and his defense of freedom, including under threats and repression.

Revés emphasized the playful character that structures a good part of the work of Savater (San Sebastián, 1947). close, proximity, immediacy, "he said.
