Spanish professor and politician. Degree in Philosophy and Letters from the Complutense University of Madrid and specialization in Pure Philosophy. Law studies. He was dedicated to teaching and he taught Philosophy at the former Universidad Laboral de Alcalá de Henares, and later at the Severo Ochoa Secondary School, at the Dobao‑Díaz Guerra Academy (private), and at the Virgen de la Paloma High School of Madrid.

Luis Gómez Llorente was married to María Teresa Gil, teacher of the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas (Official School of Languages); they had a son.

He was Vice‑Dean of the Colegio de Doctores y Licenciados en Filosofía y Letras (College of Doctors and Graduates in Philosophy and Letters) (1974-1977) and member of the Asociación Española de Cooperación Europea (Spanish Association for European Cooperation).

Luis Gómez Llorente began his political career in the Agrupación Socialista Universitaria (ASU/University Socialist Group). He joined the Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE/Spanish Socialist Worker's Party) in 1958 and he was secretary of Training and Education of this party, as well as member of its Executive Committee until the XXVIII Congress. Member of the FETE Local Committee of the Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT/General Union of Workers). He was Vice President of the UGT Congress in 1975. During the Spanish democracy, he was Deputy for Oviedo in the Constituent Assembly and I parliamentary terms.

He was deeply interested in the history of socialism as well as in the biographies and trajectories of Spanish socialist leaders such as Francisco Largo Caballero, Julián Besteiro, and Pablo Iglesias, for which he showed since then an attitude of incessant emulation.

He had a key role in the XXVIII Congress of the PSOE, when Felipe González resigned to stand for re‑election as Secretary‑General.

González unleashed a strong controversy in the party by expressing his desire to suppress the Marxist term from the ideological definition of the PSOE. This led to some clashes between the two of them.

In recent years, since the arrival of Zapatero to the general secretariat, Gómez Llorente was involved in some party activities and became the main theorist of secularism within the PSOE. In education, his last contribution was the subject 'Educación para la Ciudadanía' (Education for Citizenship).

He has published several books and numerous articles in newspapers and magazines.
