Manuel Cruz not only plagiarized in his book, "Being without time" by the influential philosopher Korean Byung-Chul Han, as published yesterday in ABC. On page 92 appears other plagiarism verbatim of eight lines (two groups of four) to the professor, a chilean living in the united States Roberto Castillo Sandoval, who does not quote in any way .
The current president of the Senate repeats the pattern of the abundant copies without mentioning that you have reported this journal: to explain to an author, instead of writing a text of your own, take the words of a third party that has already done this work and not citing it.
Cross is explaining in "Being without time" the concept of nostalgia as the Russian Svetlana Boym , professor of Harvard University who died in 2015, and author of the book "The future of nostalgia" (referring to her by mistake as "Svetlan", instead of Svetlana). To do this, the current president of the Senate, copy and paste the text Castle Sandoval, first published on his blog in the year 2005 and, later, in 2014, in his book "Antipodes" (the Manuel Cruz is 2016).Original Roberto Castillo (2005 and 2014) - ABC
Copy of Manuelñ Cross (2016) - ABC
ABC got in touch with the professor, a chilean, a phd from Harvard University, where he also taught, and now teaching at the elite Haverford College in Pennsylvania (USA), to ask him about that text:
"Svetlana was a classmate of mine at Harvard University. I heard a lot of talk about this issue and, of course, after I read your book, what I quoted and I did that summary that you just gave me a read" ."The text is mine"
Castillo Sandoval claimed the authorship of their words, as well as the fact that it had to be cited by Cruz: "Those paragraphs are my words explaining the concepts of nostalgia, restorative and reflective of Svetlana. It in his book doesn't say so, so that if another author wants to use those phrases should citarme, clear , or make original phrases of Svetlana and entrecomillarlas. It is not necessary to plagiarize".
After the call to ABC, professor chilean made public the plagiarism on his Twitter account comparing and contrasting the two texts: "This afternoon, the journalist of ABC me read a few lines that I sounded familiar and, of course: judge ye. My text is from the 2005 (and is in the Antipodes, 2014) and the note of the book of the lord President of the Spanish Senate is 2016. is What fome (without grace, without brightness, in Spanish of Chile), so copycat, if it is not necessary to plagiarize ".
Tweet posted by the professor chile on Thursday after receiving a call of ABC - ABC
professor Robert Castle took the opportunity to read the information published by ABC regarding the plagiarism of Manuel Cruz and noticed a curious fact and a significant one, the "classic error copying": "In one of the plagiarism Nicola Abbagnano published in ABC reference is made to the Foundation Barnes of "Marion", Pennsylvania. Well, it happens that I live two minutes from the place where until very recently, was the Foundation Barnes, and the town is called, in reality, "Merion". Nicola Abbagnano was wrong (in 1956) and Manuel Cruz you copied the error."
In this example, published by ABC in the first information on the plagiarism of Manuel Cruz, the 10th of September, the president of the Senate nor used quotation marks or quoted from another mode to Abbagnano .
ABC was yesterday put in contact with the cabinet of Manuel Cruz to offer him the opportunity to explain these texts, but, for the third time, refused to get on the phone or to receive to this journal , as he already did before we published the plagiarism to nine philosophers in his book "contemporary Philosophy" and copy it to the south Korean Byung-Chul Han in "Being without time".
With the of today, this journal has already published a dozen of plagiarism to eleven authors in only two books of more than 30 published by the president of the Senate.Updated Date: 22 September 2019, 03:01
