3. Multicultural Origins of the Americas: Education in the New Spain
This article presents the first results of a study on multicultural origins in the Americas. I present the contributions of three intellectuals of New Spain, pointing out which of their approaches could aid in resolving todays’ immigrant problem. My research focuses its attention mainly on the Florentine Codex, a book written by Bernardino of Sahagún, who developed the first ‘semiotic’ treatise in the Americas. These contributions deserve to be studied in their peculiarities and, moreover, indicate possible solutions to the conflicts that arise also now from the clash of different cultures and their diverging world-views.
