This new book by Rafael Ramis Barceló, deputy director of the IEHM, is entitled La Segunda Escolástica. A proposal for historical synthesis. This publication, the result of many years of study, is the first manual that deals historically with the second scholasticism, with a definition, a study proposal, a periodization and a causal analysis, covering from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, with an appendix on the third scholasticism.
