CASSIGOLI SALAMON, Rossana. ANTHROPOLOGY OF CULTURAL PRACTICES: MICHEL DE CERTEAU. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2016, vol.48, n.4, pp.679-690.  Epub 09-Sep-2016. ISSN 0717-7356.

This article explores the theory of everyday practices in the work ofjesuit anthropologist Michel de Certeau. Inparallel, it considers the sources upon which it is built: Kant, Marx, Freud, Wittgenstein and Lefebvre, without overlooking the contributions of Foucault and Bourdieu with whom he establishes a fructiferous dialogue. As an anthropological andpolitical urgency, de Certeau posits the reflection on the human practices of habitability and coexistence. A transcendental element of belonging would be located within the practices; traditional making do through which "the collective" -embodying a primeval value of the human species- would remain irreducible to the homogenizing attack of modern society. Everyday practices would remain spread as "memories", combining traces of a lost social body: isolated from the set they used to be part of, hinting a different cultural model; they represent what a group stands for in itspresent relationship with a "dispersedpatrimony". De Certeau's affirmation offreedom ofpractices endorses a magnanimous confidence in the subject's intelligence and in the potentiality of the creative human ethos.A "politization of belonging" is desirable within his works, where the accepted tradition would be transformed in a "history to do".

Palabras clave : Practices; everyday life; historicity; praxis; memory; ethics; anthropology.
