      note          = "The aim of the essay is to rescue, from a critical
                       perspective, the most relevant notions that shape
                       Blochian´s thought and also to check the extent of his
                       philosophy today. E. Bloch's philosophy is developed in a
                       crossroads built on four representative figures of the
                       history of philosophy: Aristotle, Hegel, Marx and Freud.

                       problems associated with the work of Bloch are stated. The
                       fundamental issue deals with the difficult articulation
                       between human utopian projections and the world understood
                       as utopian topos, i.e. between the transforming capacity of
                       utopian thought and the material limits imposed by given
                       conditions. Solving this link between utopia and matter
                       requires challenging the traditional notion of
