Resumen

SKEWES VODANOVIC, Juan Carlos; PALMA MORALES, Lorenzo  y  GUERRA MALDONADO, Debbie. Voices from the forest: Disputes among human beings and trees in the emergence of a new moral community in the south Chilean mountain range. Alpha [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.105-126. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012017000200105.

The changing relations between human and trees open opportunities in the narratives of the south Andean residents to expand the moral duties towards those beings upon whom humans depend and with whom they live. The existence of long lasting Mapuche cultural practices in the mountainous areas along with the transformations of timber towns and the narratives of people who exploited the native trees in those territories prompt a reshaping of the link with nature by means of the creation of moral duties based upon the diversity of local experiences. Such an alternative coincides with those philosophical orientations that recognize humans as part and not as the center of a vital patchwork. At the same time, it relates to the need of alternatives to preserve nature while guaranteeing social inclusion and intercultural coexistence.

Palabras clave : moral community; forest; mapuche; timber towns; vital materialism.
