All of the body of work of Xirau is an attempt to better traditional intellectualism, unable to resolve the modern crisis between what is and what should be. It involves an intellectualism which separates the object and the subject so radically that, once the separation is made,cannot manage to understand knowledge as that which really is, like a comprehensive act of reality. According to Xirau, this divorce between the rigidity of being and the spontaneity of the subject which protects and values can only be overcome if the spheres of facts and values are not considered separately. One must know how to find confluence.n nFor  this reason Xirau proposes a harmonizing phenomenology of different tendencies, based on a love metaphysic and oriented towards the reform of society through education. His is an attempt to restore the world and the spirit's lost unity. What he calls "the order of love" wants to achieve the "personalization" of reality, which is never objective and closed, instead always confluent and open. The reality of being always has a valuable subjective component which gives it its dynamic and profound character. n
