Filosofia Natural Lusa: A Viagem Philosophica e a Política Iluminista na América Portuguesa Setecentista

Eulália Maria Aparecida De Moraes, & Rafael Dias Da Silva Campos
This article examines the action of the Lusitanian crown, to promote, in 1783, the travel of Alexandre Rodrigues Ferreira into America, to collect and describe animals, plants and minerals, besides delimiting frontiers in litigation with Spain. The article also allows us to rediscuss that classic perspective of the Lusitanian’s Enlightenment as a tardy and shy movement.
