Exploration, Science and Culture URL:

The cultural and scientific approach to exploration, which has been present throughout the lecture series in the background, will come to the fore in this lecture, which will thus culminate a whole month of explorations of its frontiers. Its objective is to highlight the role that science and culture have had, as stimulii, method and objectives, in an exploration that sought and still seeks world knowledge. Seas, new lands, islands, deserts, volcanos, mountains, remote and mythical have required a spirit, that of exploration, to be reached, a culture in order to comprehend them and popularise them and a science to explain them. Exploration has been (and still is) thus understood as the essential source of access to geographical knowledge and, with it, to global conceptions of the Earth, the comprehension of its diversity and its sense of whole.
