Jaime Luciano Balmes, 1810–1848. Balmes was a Spanish priest and a prominent philosopher, political writer, and journalist. The Catholic Encyclopedia accords him "a universally admitted place of honour amongst the greatest philosophers of modern times." Balmes is credited with reviving the scholastic system of thought that waned during the Enlightment. He said, "reading is like nourishment: the benefit is not in proportion to what is eaten, but rather what is digested,” and “Wherever there is a man who ponders an object, inquiring about its nature, its causes, its relationships, its origin, its end—there is a philosopher.” The Billins printed the first English translation of one of his greatest works, Filosofía Fundamental.
