Abstract:

The historiography doesn’t include the European aspirations of the technocratic elites in the researches about the relations between Franco’s Spain and the European Economic Community (EEC). The researches have been scarcely complex. These analysis, although retrospective, have been originated from the absolutism of nowadays in a non-historical way (a democratic and integrated Spain). It is necessary to study the technocratic attitudes before Western Europe in the whole frame of its neotradiotionalism.
