Nuevas perspectivas en Historia de la Ciencia

Historia de la Ciencia, Historia de los descubrimientos, Historia de los saberes
La Historia de la Ciencia proporciona herramientas metodológicas muy valiosas para poder abordar problemas complejos gracias a que permite integrar disciplinas científicas y humanísticas.
