The Uncertainties of Empire : Essays in Iberian and Ibero-American Intellectual History, Hardback Book

The Uncertainties of Empire : Essays in Iberian and Ibero-American Intellectual History Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series

Description

The essays in this book are concerned with the intellectual development of the Spanish Empire in America from 1492 until Independence in the 1820s. The first section deals with the creation of a powerful language of natural law in the 16th and 17th centuries. The second explores the ways in which this was used to account for, and to deprecate, the cultures of the Native Americas. The final section traces the emergence of Enlightenment modes of approaching the subject of 'Others', both in Europe and the New World, and charts the emergence of a separate cultural identity among the creole population of the Americas.
