Resumen

DE MUNTER, Koen. RELATIONAL ONTOLOGY AND COSMOPRAXIS, SEEN FROM THE ANDES: VISITING AND COMMEMORATING AMONG AYMARA FAMILIES. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2016, vol.48, n.4, pp.629-644.  Epub 25-Ago-2016. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562016005000030.

This article is an invitation to rethink the central anthropological question about what is social life -and what it means to be human- in dialogue with Tim Ingold's recent work, when he conceives social life -liberated from anthropocentrism- as a flux of continuous and open-ended "lines of life". These lines of life evolve amongst and along other lines of life, and correspond with them, in a relational world ("the life of lines"). As for "human correspondence", all members of a group are engaged in a process of education of attention where they learn to be attentive to the general meshwork of correspondences through a process of co-participation: novices and more experienced members co-participate in socio-ecological enskilment through their everyday or ritual practices. In our analysis, cosmopraxis prevails over cosmovision and doing partakes of a dance of animacy, so that anthropogenesis should always be seen as a "making-in-the-growing". This theoretical reflection about the lines of social life is inspired and illustrated by the important example of the commemorations of the dead and the praxis of "visiting" or tumpaña amongst Aymara families in El Alto, Bolivia.

Palabras clave : Relational ontology; cosmopraxis; Aymara; correspondences; attention.
