Abstract

The collection of essays, Los lugares del saber. Contextos locales y redes transnacionales en la formación del conocimiento moderno (Places of Learning: Local Contexts and Transnational Networks in the Formation of Modern Knowledge) edited by Ricardo D. Salvatore, is a praise worthy attempt to break new ground in comparative work and move away from the dichotomies of center/periphery, metropolis/periphery that inevitably stress the uneven production of knowledge and scant the contributions of the local. Another merit of this collection is that it covers the production of knowledge beyond what the editor terms the philosophical in order to concentrate on architecture, paleontology, demographics, and law, as well as on the connections established by diplomacy, translation, expeditions, and letters.
