Overview

Much has been written about the European influence on America, though very little has been written about the reverse. Colombian educator and diplomat Germán Arciniegas worked his entire life to disclose the contributions of the New World to the Western culture: the progress of science, philosophy, and the modern word, among others. Every event and anecdote presented in this book links America to Europe, defending the notion that America completed cultural life on earth.
 

Mucho se ha escrito sobre la influencia de Europa en América. poco, en cambio, se ha dicho en sentido contrario. en esta obra, el gran americanista colombiano, quien trabajó toda su vida en rescatar y divulgar los aportes del nuevo mundo a la llamada cultura occidental, plantea la otra cara del argumento. La proyección de América en Europa, su papel en la evolución del planeta, desde el momento mismo en que con su descubrimiento la tierra se completa, el sol cambia de sitio y el universo, como un todo, se expande. En un impresionante despliegue de humor y coherencia, cada suceso expuesto en este libro se vincula inexorablemente con la tesis central como prueba de su acertada enunciación.
