Abstract

In the article, I present some reflections about how to conceptualize what has been labelled the “School of Salamanca”, a 16th- and early 17th-century intellectual movement developed at the University of Salamanca. After reconstructing the making of the concept “School of Salamanca” in the late 19th and early 20th century, I suggest to consider the intellectual movement addressed under this denomination as both an epistemic community and a community of practice that reached out far beyond the borders of Salamanca, Spain and the Iberian pensinula. More adequately, it can be understood as a part and one of the centers of a global network of knowledge production in the field of normativity.
