Abstract

As a scholar who is very interested in scientific and technological discourses of the early modern period and their manifestation in the Spanish comedia, I was intrigued by the prospect of reviewing Enrique García Santo-Tomás’s well-articulated collection of essays, Science on Stage in Early Modern Spain. I was not disappointed: the collection brings together eleven essays that trace the history of science and technology in the early modern period, the impact of science on sociocultural events in early modern Spain, its ubiquity in everyday life during the era, and its representation on the stage.
