Next week, we’re going to take a look at anthropologist Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and his use of Amerindian perspectivism to move outside the relativist, realist ontology that pervades anthropology. Sounds FUN doesn’t it??
Our reading is “The Relative Native”, the first essay in the volume below of the same name, but I’ve also attached a pdf of what seems to be VdC’s most well-known text, Cannibal Metaphysics, for those who are interested.
UPDATE: Link for The Relative Native has been fixed. Sorry about that!
