Educación, barbarie y ley natural en Bartolomé de las Casas y José de Acosta

In the Spanish-Indian controversies, special attention was given to the subject of the education of the Indians, understood in a first approach as the necessary procedure to enable them to overcome their barbarianism, that is, to better adapt themselves to the natural law. This generated a philosophy of education which, in spite of being directly inspired by the circumstances of the Indians, nonetheless had permanent value by virtue of its anthropological soundness and its classical approach. This article deals with the notions of barbarianism, education, natural law, and their interplay in the educational works of Bartolomé de las Casas and José de Acosta
