    • Abstract:
      In this article, I analyze Spanish philosophy under the Restauration regime. Based on Randall Collins's sociology, I defend the thesis that philosophical creativity in Spain suff ered a contraction that had its zenith at the end of the 19th century but, neverthless, new conditions were generated to recover the creative energy in the fi rst third of the 20th century. Aft er discussing and qualifying Collins's theoretical proposal, I recount a possible depiction of the history of Spanish philosophy, focused in the 19th and early 20th centuries, aft er which I off er a possible explanation for the stagnation and latter takeoff. Finally, I propose a set of methodological operations directed to test this narrative. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Este artículo analiza la fi losofía española durante el régimen de la Restauración. Basándome en la sociología de Randall Collins, defiendo la tesis de que la creatividad fi losófi ca en España sufrió un proceso de contracción que alcanzó su cenit a fi nales del siglo xix, pero que progresivamente generó condiciones para su repunte en el primer tercio del siglo xx. Tras discutir y matizar la propuesta teórica de Collins, desarrollo un posible relato sobre la historia de la fi losofía española en el siglo xix y principios del xx, y ofrezco una posible explicación del estancamiento creativo y su posterior despegue. Finalmente, propongo un conjunto de operaciones metodológicas encaminadas a probar la solidez del relato. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
