Abstract:

Iberian Studies pose a fascinating problem from the point of view of hermeneutics the study of theories of how to understand matters from another's point of view. Given its vocation of building bridges, Iberian Studies have to face the problem that pre-judices and the history of any academic discipline weigh heavily on such an undertaking. An uncontaminated, unprejudiced position is neither possible nor desirable. Together with a close examination of such pre-judices and their action of transmitting knowledge about otherness, this article offers a reflection around the possibility of Iberian Studies as a science of mediation.

Los estudios ibricos plantean un apasionante problema desde el punto de vista de la hermenutica el estudio de las teoras de como entender los asuntos desde el punto de vista del otro. Dada su vocacin de tender puentes, los estudios ibricos se enfrentan a la problemtica de que los pre-juicios y la historia de cualquier disciplina acadmica tienen un peso importante en esa tarea. La asepsia, la posicin no-contaminada, no slo es imposible, sino tambin indeseable. Junto a una descripcin detallada de la estructura de esos pre-juicios y de su accin en la transmisin de los conocimientos sobre una alteridad, el artculo ofrece tambin una reflexin en torno a las posibilidades para una ciencia de mediacin como son los estudios ibricos.
