This year we are commemorating the 4th Centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare.  As a part of the celebrations, we have invited Dr Francisco A González Redondo, Professor of History of the Science in the Universidad Complutense, Madrid, for a talk on the 17th of October. He will offer a detailed analysis of the European and Spanish Science before, during and after Cervantes’ and Shakespeare’s lives (1547-1616).This period is comprised within the Copernican Revolution, a time for the study and development of the Copernicus’ heliocentric vision of the Cosmos. It also includes the work of Galileo, Kepler, Newton, etc. setting the basis for the Scientific Revolution, a time when Europe would give a new dimension to the inheritance received from the Classical World.
