The Reception of Darwinism in the Iberian World

I Twenty-five years ago, at the Conference on the Comparative Reception of Darwinism held at the University of Texas in 1972, only two countries of the Iberian world-Spain and Mexico-were represented.' At the time, it was apparent that the topic had attracted interest only as regarded the "mainstream" science countries of Western Europe, plus the United States. The Eurocentric bias of professional history of science was a fact. The sea change that subsequently occurred in the historiography of science makes 1972 appear something like the antediluvian era.

De Darwin al DNA y el origen de la humanidad

La teoría evolutiva moderna tiene su inicio con la publicación de el origen de las especies de Charles Darwin en 1859. Este libro expone la historia de las ideas de la evolución desde Lamark; los debates de mayor envergadura a principios del siglo XX y una exposición de la última corriente evolutiva: la teoría sintética, y concluye con una exposición de los orígenes de la humanidad reciente. Los autores responden a la pregunta: ¿cómo es posible que esta doctrina centenaria siga vigente? y sugieren que su vigencia se debe a la capacidad explicativa y la posibilidad de ligar argumentos y demostraciones sustentables.
