    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: En este retropost de 2010 hablamos de Miguel de Unamuno y de su doble escepticismo, escepticismo ante la fe y ante el ateísmo. Es un libro desilusionado, San Manuel Bueno, Mártir—desilusionado con las creencias religiosas, y desilusionado con el ateísmo. Una vez perdida la ilusión en redimir a la humanidad en este o en el otro mundo, la novela mantiene sin embargo la ilusión de que vale la pena mantener las ilusiones... en los demás. Y es cierto que, aunque a veces resulta inevitable, suele ser poco elegante el privar a la gente de sus ilusiones. ________________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: LET THEM DREAM THEMSELVES IMMORTAL: UNAMUNO, A DOUBLE SKEPTIC. This retro-post from 2010 addresses Miguel de Unamuno and his double skeptic attitude, skepticism towards faith and towards unbelief. The novel San Manuel Bueno, Mártir expresses his disillusion with religious belief and his disillusion with atheism. Once the illusion to redeem humankind in this world or in the other is dispelled, the novel upholds nonetheless the belief that illusions are worth maintaining... in others. And it is true that, while it is sometimes inevitable, dispelling other people's illusions is often lacking in elegance.
