This paper is both a first step towards, and an invitation to go on with, the study of the reception of modern--symbolic, mathematical--logic in Spain. I examine the first and unsuccessful introduction of modern logic in mathematical and philosophical circles, between 1890 and 1930. Such reception failures are usually attributed to external and/or general circumstances, ranging from personal to institutional and cultural conditions of Spanish learning. But here we should also take into account the very working of the so-called "sowers", i.e., introducing people, as well as some other internal factors and frames of this nonreception case.
