In the personal library of Borges, which is found in the foundation that bears his name, it is noted that most books deal with topics of philosophy and religion, and through these authors it is possible to find the keys to the philosophy of life of this Genius, which points to happiness. The author of El Aleph has left us a wonderful library, of which only some copies can be seen in these pages, which allow us to discover the keys of that happiness. The readings of some philosophers and mystics are those that surely had a decisive influence on a work that gives us a path in the art of living. The books photographed in this book are less than five percent of those treasured by the foundation. But there we can find thoughts that can lead us to happiness. We can observe books from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century. Diverse editions in languages such as English, Italian, German and of course Castilian. This book also allows us to inspect many annotations that the Argentine author made while reading them and where the interest represented by certain passages of them can be analyzed. CONTENTS: Prólogo / Maria Kodama -- Borges: una filosofía de vida / Fernando Flores Maio.
