Synopsis

Si bien podriamos decir que America Latina ha sido foco de la ciencia mundial, como el ejemplo de Charles Darwin y otros numerosos estudios de historia natural durante el periodo colonial demuestran, con mayor dificultad podríamos alegar que sus cientificos han contribuido sustancialmente al conocer cientifico global. El desarrollo de su ciencia ha demostrado un paso letargico en comparacion con otras naciones occidentales, por ejemplo Estados Unidos o Alemania. ¿Por que? Algunos especularían como causa principal el colonialismo politico, el imperialismo economico, o los intrinsecos rasgos culturales hispanicos. Como cualquier buen estudio cientifico, antes de contestar el "¿por que?", es importante revisar el "¿que?", "¿como?" y "¿donde?". Este estudio describe los contornos de la ciencia latinoamericana, desde el periodo indigena precolombino hasta el periodo moderno, con el proposito de explicar las causas de un problematico rasgo de su identidad. 476 páginas. If we can state that Latin America has been the focus of global science, such as the case of Charles Darwin and numerous other students of natural history during the colonial period demonstrate, with greater difficulty could we claim that its scientists have substantially contributed to global scientific knowledge. The development of its science has taken a lethargic pace in comparison to other Western nations, such as the United States or Germany. Why? Some would speculate that the central cause has been political colonialism, economic imperialism, or intrinsic hispanic cultural traits. However, as with any good scientific study, before answering the “why?”, it is important to review the “what?”, “how?”, “where?” and “when?” This study describes the historical contours of science in Latin America, from the indigenous pre-Colombian period to the modern era, with the purpose of seeking to understand the causes of this problematic identity trait. 476 pages.
