Science in the Spanish and Portuguese Empires, 1500-1800

By Daniela Bleichmar; Paula De Vos et al. | Go to book overview

Notes

preface

1. A recent publication by one of the volume’s contributors addresses this problem at length: Antonio Barrera-Osorio, Experiencing Nature: The Spanish American Empire and the Early Scientific Revolution (Austin: University of Texas Press, 2006).

2. It is telling that many exceptions to this historiographical blind spot come from the contributors to this volume. Chapters 1 and 2 of the collection provide a thorough historiographical review of work on science in the Spanish and Portuguese empires.

3. See Roy MacLeod, “Introduction,” in Nature and Empire: Science and the Colonial Enterprise, Osiris 15 (2000), 6; Shula Marks, “What Is Colonial about Colonial Medicine? And What Has Happened to Imperialism and Health?” Presidential Address, Social History of Medicine 10, no. 2 (1997), 205–19; and Michael Worboys, “Tropical Diseases,” in Companion Encyclopedia of the History of Medicine, ed. W. F. Bynum and Roy Porter, 2 vols. (London and New York: Routledge, 1993), 1:22–44, among others decrying this scholarly omission.

4. See for instance Londa Schiebinger and Claudia Swan (eds.), Colonial Botany: Science, Commerce, and Politics in the Early Modern World (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2005); Pamela Smith and Paula Findlen (eds.), Merchants and Marvels: Commerce, Science, and Art in Early Modern Europe (New York: Routledge, 2001); John Brewer and Roy Porter (eds.), Consumption and the World of Goods (London and New York: Routledge, 1993); and David Philip Miller and Peter Hans Reill (eds.), Visions of Empire: Voyages, Botany and Representations of Nature (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996).


Introduction

1. See also Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra, Nature, Empire, and Nation (Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 2006).

2. See, for example, Richard Westfall, The Construction of Modern Science: Mechanisms and Mechanics (New York: Cambridge University Press, 1977).
