      Abstract

      Resumen A lo largo del siglo XVII, los estudios de matemáticas en las universidades españolas habían llegado casi a desaparecer, y esa situación se prolongó en parte del siglo XVIII, como se verá. El objetivo principal de este artículo es averiguar si el espíritu reformista del reinado de Carlos III tuvo incidencia en la enseñanza de las matemáticas en la Universidad de Alcalá. Para ello se analizan las reformas y planes de estudio que se establecieron y se examinan los libros de matemáticas recomendados. Se concluye que, efectivamente, la presencia de las matemáticas se incrementó, con la inclusión de dos asignaturas de matemáticas en la Facultad de Artes, y el nivel de sus contenidos evolucionó positivamente, incorporando a sus estudios la matemática moderna europea que había surgido con la Revolución Científica.

      Abstract In the course of the seventeenth century, the studies of mathematics in Spanish universities had almost disappeared, and this situation continued in part of the eighteenth century, as will be seen here. The main purpose of this paper is to find whether the reforming spirit from the reign of Carlos III had an impact on the teaching of mathematics at the University of Alcalá. For this purpose, the reforms and syllabus that were established were analyzed and the books of mathematics recommended were examined. It is concluded that, indeed, the presence of mathematics increased, with the inclusion of two courses of mathematics in the Faculty of Arts, and the level of their contents evolved positively, incorporating to its studies the modern European mathematics that had emerged within the Scientific Revolution.
