Technologies of Humanism by Juan Luis Suarez

Just this past week, the CulturePlex was happy to announce the publication of the latest book by Dr. Juan Luis Suarez. Technologies of Humanism, the editorial novelty of Bibliotheca Montaniana, is a study of Spanish humanism and the technological solutions it has developed in order to solve some of the informative and thus cultural problems that derive from the discovery of America. Contact with America is understood here as the fundamental trigger of the first globalization of the modern world. Globalization, in turn, refers to the expansion and redesign of human communication networks, trade and commerce and exponential increase of the human nodes with which a humanist could potentially get to interact. America will then be synonymous with complexity for humanism.

Technologies of Humanism proposes that the key element of humanism is the development of a set of cultural technologies aimed at reducing uncertainty by organizing the cognitive, social and institutional processes that facilitate cultural transmission and reproduction.

The CulturePlex Team would like to congratulate Dr. Suarez on his latest achievement.  You are an inspiration to all of us and we wish you every success in all your future academic endevours.
