Due to the current controversy surrounding the perceptions of cruelty of bullfighting outside its cultural context, we have recently brought out an English language translation of an essential short text to help the reader to understand and uphold the corrida de los toros.
50 Reasons to Defend the Corrida is a work by the prestigious French philosopher Francis Wolff, profesor of philosophy at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris. Written in an amenable, simple and direct style, it is a text that, as its title indicates, advocates the bullfight, giving 50 reasons which are explained in detail from ethical, historical, cultural, humanistic and ecological points of view.
Originally written in French, our edition has been rendered into English by Barbara Ann Sapp. The book includes a prologue by the Presidenta de la Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza of Seville, one of the most important bullrings in the mundo del toreo.
