In , the family moved to Madrid and a year afterwards to Segovia , where her father obtained a job as Spanish Grammar professor. She spent there her teenage years. During the 20s and 30s, she actively campaigned for the establishment of the Spanish Second Republic.

Philosophy[ edit ] For Zambrano philosophy starts with the divine, with the explanation of the daily things with the gods until someone ask himself: what are things? In this way the philosophical attitude is born. This is one of the two main attitudes: the philosophical and the poetical one. The first emerges when human beings wonder, i. On the other hand, the poetical one is the answer, the calmness and in which we can find the answers to everything once it is discovered.

Her philosophical attitude is conveyed by means of an unusual language and a creative expression of her way of thinking. It determines her literary style and is the basis for what she named her "method". Her political action was more direct in the preceding years of the establishment of the Second Republic and, without doubts, in the Civil War.

Nonetheless, she refused to take part in any political party and thus rejected a seat in the General Courts offered by Jimenez de Asua. Thus, she opted to go on with her philosophical vocation but did not give up on politics rather decided to do politics from the core of thought itself. She explained in her first book "Horizonte del liberalismo" , "politics are done always when it is thought to direct life" and that is precisely what she aspired to achieve by means of her poetic activity, criticism of fascist movements, the discursive reason and rationalism.
