PALAZON MAYORAL, María Rosa. Ética, amor y locura (Don Quijote según una mirada platónica). Nova tellus [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp. 151-167. ISSN 0185-3058.
Where did the abnormal project of Miguel de Cervantes arise, under the direct influence of Erasmus from Rotterdam, to make a praise of madness? What kind of madness is this all about? Even if we pass over the immortality of the soul, the Phaedrus and other works of Plato display the Greek seed of this madness about love and beauty, a seed that wants to live for and with the others whitin a juster institutional frame. Always loving, this abnormal-sensible man lived crazy and died sound. Those who do not follow his example have a pragmatic approach, hold the power or are pusillanimous.
