Subjects: History of Science

Collection: Estudios sobre la Ciencia


This book studies the development of geophysics in contemporary Spain, covering the more institutional and economic aspects of geophysics. In particular it addresses the rising professional status of the discipline; the entities (observatories, institutes, companies) in which it was promoted; the relationships between geophysicists and the Society of Jesus; industrial geophysical prospecting; the interrelation between geophysics and the economic policies of successive governments; and the role of geophysics and geophysicists in society. In short, the study aims to help show how science is inseparable from the society into which it is born, a society which, in turn, depends on the progress of science.
