Tracking the Naturalists – Philosophic Journeys

No Trilho dos Naturalistas – Viagens Philosophicas

Directed by Susana Nobre
Portugal, 2016


The film provides context to the development of modern science in Portugal, propelled by the Marquis of Pombal and which translated into the Portuguese philosophical expeditions of the late 18th century. We travel through botany’s archives, herbaria and study methodologies.
