La vida según Charles Darwin

“ En las cartas que escribía a otros científicos, el naturalista inglés teorizaba también sobre el origen de la vida en la Tierra. Entre los textos encontrados destaca una metáfora sobre "un pequeño charco de agua templada"”

Revisiting Alexander von Humboldt

Revisiting Alexander von Humboldt | Circulación de saberes en la historia global | Scoop.it
On why a Prussian scientific visionary should be studied afresh…In a superb biography, Andrea Wulf makes an inspired case for Alexander von Humboldt to be considered the greatest scientist of the 19th century. Certainly he was the last great polymath in a scientific world which, by the time he died in Berlin in 1859, aged 89, was fast hardening into the narrow specializations that typify science to this day. Yet in the English-speaking world, Humboldt is strangely little-known.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 10, 2015 1:28 PM

Alexander von Humboldt has been described as the last great ancient geographer concerned with understanding an eclectic cosmography as well as the first modern geographer. He is honored far and wide throughout Europe and especially  Latin America for his explorations, but given that people are confused as how to categorize him and classify his contributions, today he is under-appreciated.  Geographers need to reclaim his memory and call his extensive, globetrotting work on a wide range of subjects ‘geography.’  Here is another article and TED-ED video on the most influential scientist that you might not have heard of (at least until today).

Tony Burton's curator insight, January 29, 4:32 PM

An interesting biography, but, strangely, Ms Wulf almost completely ignores Humboldt's time in Mexico. In some ways, his time in Mexico was more pivotal in terms of geography than his time in South America. Claiming that Humboldt is a virtual unknown in Europe is a gross distortion of the facts; there have been numerous books about Humboldt over the last thirty to forty years, let alone before that time!.

Navigational Enterprises in Europe and its Empires, 1730–1850 - Richard Dunn - Rebekah Higgitt - Palgrave Macmillan

Navigational Enterprises in Europe and its Empires, 1730–1850 - Richard Dunn - Rebekah Higgitt - Palgrave Macmillan | Circulación de saberes en la historia global | Scoop.it
Navigational Enterprises in Europe and its Empires, 1730–1850 brings together the work of international authors to explore European experiences in the development of new navigational techniques and instruments in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This is the period in which the 'longitude problem' has been presented as being solved in an unproblematic way. Challenging this narrative, the book looks beyond just the British story to examine the role of governments, institutions, men of science, practitioners and navigators across Europe, and the use of the new and old techniques and instruments in practice. As the different chapters show, the methods available, including long-established navigational techniques such as dead reckoning and the newer astronomical and timekeeping methods of longitude determination, were complementary rather than exclusive. When and how they were used depended on local, national and other circumstances, although their development must be seen as the result of international and transnational exchanges.

The year was 1789; the place Bengal. Isaac Newton’s masterpiece Principia  Mathematica was being translated for only the third time in its already 100-year-old history; this time, into Arabic. The author of this remarkable feat of scholarship was Tafazzul Husain Khan. According to a member of the ruling East India Company: “Khan… by translating the works of the immortal Newton, has conducted those imbued with Arabick literature to the fountain of all physical and astronomical knowledge.”

Los 400 años de la muerte del Inca Garcilaso de la Vega

Los 400 años de la muerte del Inca Garcilaso de la Vega | Circulación de saberes en la historia global | Scoop.it
Quien se acerque hoy al edificio de la Biblioteca Nacional de España podrá ver los carteles que anuncian la exhibición de“La biblioteca del Inca Garcilaso de la Vega”. En el mismo recinto, en estos días, también están abiertas al público una gran muestra de grabados de Rubens y Van Dyck y una pequeña pero deliciosa exposición sobre los legados del episodio del Retablo de Maese Pedro en Don Quijote. La presencia del Inca en la fachada de ese emblemático edificio madrileño, a 400 años de su fallecimiento, nos recuerda que la riqueza del Renacimiento no solo se funda en las tradiciones del Viejo Mundo, sino en los cruces y migraciones de la primera globalización que se inició en el siglo XVI, y de la cual el mestizo cusqueño Garcilaso de la Vega, nacido en 1539, es su más destacado representante.
