Abstract

El artículo estudia el discurso elaborado en los espacios de la propiedad industrial durante el siglo XIX español. Se presta especial atención a la conceptualización y representación del cambio tecnológico y la retórica empleada por aquellos agentes sociales próximos al mundo de la invención tecnológica y la propiedad industrial. En las décadas centrales del siglo XIX empezó a generalizarse entre este grupo social un discurso apologético de la mecanización, el progreso industrial y la propiedad del invento. Este discurso se impregnaba de una retórica nacionalista que se veía estimulada por la creciente globalización económica, con sus consiguientes líderes y seguidores, y la competencia tecnológica escenificada en colosales exposiciones industriales. En concreto, el artículo analiza el contenido de una publicación técnica vinculada con la promoción y difusión de la información contenida en las patentes, La Gaceta Industrial, y el discurso, tanto explícito como implícito, de la documentación técnica y administrativa de los privilegios reales y de las patentes de invención solicitadas en España en este periodo.
