This interdisciplinary study provides new Hispanic references to Karl Jaspers prior to the postwar, which diversify and qualify his reception. His multifaceted work circulated among various fields: medicine-especially psychiatry-psychology, pedagogy, philosophy, sociology, politics, religion, art, literature⋯ On the other hand, his versatile thought was used, sometimes quite distortedly, by authors of opposite trends. In particular, Allgemeine Psychopathologie (1913), republished in German and in French, became a reference manual, but Die geistige Situation der Zeit (1931), a modem, informative and controversial book published two years later in a Spanish translation by Ramón de la Serna, increased Jaspers' celebrity.
