"Doctor and humanist. Gregorio Marañón was not only a brilliant doctor and researcher, but also wrote excellent essays."

He was born in Madrid in 1887, and received a Special Recognition award for his degree in 1910, and Special Recognition for his Doctorate in 1911. By then, he had already begun to publish medical articles in various journals. His work as a scientist and researcher focused mainly on the study of infectious diseases and endocrinology, which gained great international prestige. His first biographical historical essays were published in the 1930s: ‘Henry IV of Castile and his times’ (1930), ‘Amiel. A study on shyness’ (1932), and ‘Tiberius. A story of resentment’ (1939). He also published moral essays, such as ‘Three essays on sex life’ (1926). His work is a magnificent combination of science and literature. He died in Madrid in 1960.
