By Desiderius Erasmus
Desiderio Erasmo, más conocido como Erasmo de Rotterdam, uno de los personajes más influyentes en los angeles Europa de su época, escribió Elogio de l. a. locura en un contexto social y cultural convulsionado por los angeles lucha entre l. a. tradición medieval y las nuevas premisas que apuntaba el humanismo. A lo largo de esta obra que Erasmo dedica a su amigo Tomás Moro, parece querer convencer al mundo de que l. a. Insensatez, los angeles Estulticia o l. a. Locura son el origen de todas las bondades, diversiones y deleites que el ser humano disfruta. Acompañadas de los angeles ebriedad, l. a. adulación, los angeles pereza o los angeles ignorancia, reclama sus méritos con desfachatez y gracia, en un discurso impregnado de ironía. Pero ¿qué pretende Erasmo con este elogio? ¿Qué esconde? ¿En qué consiste este juego de ingenio? ¿Es todo una burla? En Elogio de l. a. locura Erasmo crea un espejismo seductor y contundente que, impregnado del humanismo cristiano que preconizaba, le sirve de excusa para describir l. a. necedad del mundo y arremeter a dentelladas contra todo lo humano y lo divino.

Nor could there be a more frightening demonstration of the virulent power of the forces which can combine to kill it. There is some room for hope, then, but none for sentimentality. A book about culture in the twentieth century which did not deal constantly with just how close culture came to being eradicated altogether would not be worth reading, although there is an ineradicable demand for uplift which would always make it worth writing. There could be a feel-good storybook about Vienna called, say, It Takes a Village.
W. Norton, who not only believed in the project from its formative stages, but gave it knowledgeable and detailed editorial attention from page to page as it steadily accumulated in his office on Fifth Avenue. If things got to the point that he had to schedule an editorial session for his flight back to New York from a conference in China, still he did not give up, and every comment he made in the margin was pertinent. In the spiritual sense, this book would not be the same without him: he was its ideal reader.
A final but vital acknowledgement should go to my copy editor, Trent Duffy, who, as well as spotting ambiguities lurking in the syntax, saved me from many serious blunders, including the results of my irritating mental habit of writing ‘Milos Forman’ for ‘Louis Malle’ – a conspicuous instance of die embarrassing phenomenon known to clinical psychologists as the Malle-Forman malformation. A book of this kind can be especially taxing in its very last stages of preparation, when the correcting of details persistently adds more details to be corrected.
