Pedro Gutierrez Bueno's Textbooks: Audiences, Teaching Practices and Chemical Revolution
Sanchez, Jose Ramon Bertomeu; Belmar, Antonio Garcia
Science & Education, v15 n7-8 p693-712 Nov 2006
Pedro Gutierrez Bueno wrote two editions of a chemistry textbook between 1788 and 1802. The paper offers a comparative view of both editions taking into account Gutierrez Bueno's biography, his intended audience and the changes related to the so-called chemical revolution. Some conclusions are at odds with common images about scientific revolutions and the role of textbooks in science. The analysis aims to shed some light on the multiple historical forces shaping textbooks and the way in which scientific change is assimilated by their writers.
