As shown above, the systemizer requires a level of detachment to understand and to organize his surroundings, which helps to explain why a lovesick soldier like Luis would not recognize his social responsibilities towards a gentleman like Lope.
While it would appear reasonable to object that Lope is not an effective systemizer because he embraces an honor code and a holy war that violate the basic tenets of Christianity (Valbuena Briones xliii; Holzinger 209; McKendrick "Anticipating" 224 and "Calderon and the Politics" 142-43), this interpretation reveals a modern rather than a contemporary social sensibility.
While modern scholars do not have to admire Lope de Almeida's actions, they should at least recognize that within the literary conventions of the drama de honor, he is a conscientious and effective systemizer who dutifully discharges his social responsibilities towards his wife and his country.
