Resum: The philosopher Joan Roura-Parella, born in Tortellà (Catalonia) in 1897, was an active member of the University of Barcelona Teaching Seminar, from which he obtained is doctorate in 1937 with a thesis supervised by Joaquim Xirau. In 1939, he was a member of the group that accompanied the poet Antonio Machado into exile. After living for a period in Mexico (1939-1945), in 1946 he went to the United States to lecture at Wesleyan University. Under the influence of Krausist philosophy and Quaker spirituality, he explored the humanistic significance of culture, as a result of which his teaching -inspired by the cosmovisionary thinking of Eduard Spranger, with whom he had contacts in Berlin between 1930 and 1932 -took on an aesthetic dimension. With this background, his philosophy of education points towards a vitalist aesthetic formalism, so that education becomes a process -akin to the neo-humanist Bildung tradition- in which an individual develops or gives form to himself throughout his whole life. He died in 1983 in Middletown (Connecticut).
