This research aims to form people with a solid, integral and full interior life, reflected in an emotional stability that favors peaceful coexistence and promotes the transformation of the world. This purpose is realized through the interpretation of Los Medios para ser interiores included in Los Trataditos, a document written in the seventeenth century by Saint John Baptist De La Salle, which had not been analyzed in its entirety until now. Hermeneutics is developed through the analogical method proposed by Mauricio Beuchot, which has been of great help to update the understanding of the document thus contributing to the integral formation of the person.
The tribunal is made up of the President, Dr. Armando Pego Puigbó; the Secretary, Dra. Núria Gómez Llauger; and the vocal, Dr. Jaume González Padrós.
