RG: como habrás visto, precisamente ese texto está -junto a uno de la Poética aristotélica- como una referencia estable en la página del Seminario Permanente. Hay sintonía.

El mejor contexto que conozco para "Expertos en humanidad" se debe textualmente a Juan Pablo II en el Discurso al Simposio de Obispos Europeos, 11-X-1985: "Se necesitan heraldos del Evangelio expertos en humanidad, que conozcan a fondo el corazón del hombre de hoy, participen de sus gozos y esperanzas, de sus angustias y tristezas, y al mismo tiempo sean contemplativos, enamorados de Dios. Para esto se necesitan nuevos santos. Los grandes evangelizadores de Europa han sido los santos. Debemos suplicar al Señor que aumente el espíritu de santidad en la Iglesia y nos mande nuevos santos para evangelizar el mundo de hoy". Me parece adecuada esta referencia textual para situar alguna de las dimensiones que podría tener ese Simposio.

    “ For tragedy is an imitation ('mimesis'), not of men, but of an action ('praxeos') and of life, and life consists in action, and its end is a mode of action ('to telos praxeis tis estin'), not a quality. Now character determines men's qualities, but it is by their actions that they are happy or the reverse.”

    [Aristotle’s Poetics, 50 a 16-18]

    “ There is a need for heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who have a profound knowledge of the heart of present-day man, sharing his joys and hopes, his anguish and sadness, and who are also contemplative souls, in love with God. “

    [Pope John Paul II to the European Council of Bishops' Conferences, 11-10-85]
