Sceptres and Sciences in the Spains
Liverpool University Press

This chapter, which sums up the key findings of this study on humanism and new philosophy in Spain during the Late Baroque Period from 1680 to 1740, discusses resistance to Gothicism in the nineteenth century, the acceptance of Gothicism as philosophy, and the folklorization of Spanish history. It traces the evolution of the instrumental metaphor of Gothicism and suggests that Gothicism was clearly alive in contemporary discussions, assumptions, and views of Spain and Spanish America during this period.

Keywords:   humanism, new philosophy, Spain, Late Baroque Period, Gothicism, folklorization, Spanish history, instrumental metaphor
