Antoni Quintana-Mari (1907-1998): A Pioneer of the Use of History of Science in Science Education
Roca-Rosell, Antoni; Grapi-Vilumara, Pere
Science & Education, v19 n9 p925-929 Sep 2010
In the early 1930s, the young Antoni Quintana-Mari undertook some research on Antoni de Marti i Franques, one of the most prominent Catalan scientists of the Enlightenment. This scientist worked in Tarragona, where Quintana-Mari lived. Quintana-Mari learnt about Marti i Franques from Josep Estalella, his teacher of physics and chemistry at the secondary school. It was while researching on Marti i Franques that Quintana-Mari became a true historian of science. He subsequently collaborated with other Spanish and foreign historians of science in the early years of this discipline. Quintana-Mari never forgot that his passion for history of science had been aroused by his school teacher.
