"Eduardo Viveiros de Castro has emerged as a leading thinker on human-nonhuman relationships, and, through that, human-human ones. He is most famous for explaining the idea of perspectivism, an Indigenous Amazonian view which he concisely defines on pp. 229-230: "the conception according to which the universe is inhabited by different sorts of persons, human and nonhuman, which apprehend reality from distinct points of view."
... this book will challenge all your preconceptions, whatever those are, and also teach you a great deal about eastern Amazonian concepts of the world.... if you want to see how far contemporary anthropological theory can go into speculative and critical realms, this is your book."--Eugene N. Anderson "Ethnobiology Letters "
