Note
  • Translation of: L'ećologie des autres. 2011
  • "Since the end of the nineteenth century, the division between nature and culture has been a fundamental characteristic of Western thought. In this groundbreaking work, Philippe Descola seeks to break down the divide between nature and culture, arguing for an anthropology freed from its anthropocentrism and this dualistic conception of nature and culture as distinct realsm of phenomena. In its stead, Descola envisions a radically novel worldview, in which beings and objects, humans and nonhumans, are analyzed by the relationships that they possess between each another"--Page 4 of cover
