Abstract

A lo largo de los siglos, se había establecido un mito alrededor de las islas Macaronesia. Con el paso del tiempo, esta construcción se ha adaptado a los diferentes paradigmas e hipótesis sobre el origen del mundo insular del Atlántico. Esta investigación se centra en el análisis de la percepción mítica e histórica que entre los isleños constituye su imaginario insular y atlántico con el objetivo de comprender el significado peculiar de la composición de la sociedad macaronésica moderna a partir de la propia experiencia adquirida. Este estudio examina el paradigma de la conceptualización del espacio con el objetivo de proponer un método de observación supranacional de las islas. Por tanto, la investigación aborda diferentes historias con el propósito de enfocar el análisis desde distintos niveles que conducen a un estudio integral de la cultura marítima de las islas de Macaronesia.
