Ingeniería de la Ilustración [Enlightenment engineering]
is a compilation of the lectures delivered during a course held at the National Distance University’s associated facility in Segovia, co-sponsored by the university and Fundación Juanelo Turriano. These lectures analyse the role of engineering as one of the tools for driving the progress pursued in Spain during the Enlightenment. They address the extensive body of work authored by eighteenth-century engineers not only on the Iberian Peninsula, but also in the monarchy’s other territories. Read online (in Spanish)
