4. Anthropology as Cosmic Diplomacy

Toward an Ecological Ethics for Times of Environmental Fragmentation

  • Eduardo Kohn (author)
Drawing on his ethnographic research among indigenous communities in Ecuador, Eduardo Kohn considers the political and ethical implications of thinking with forests. It is a diplomatic undertaking that seeks to integrate multiple ways of understanding the cosmos, and it is an ontological undertaking that rethinks the very nature of existence by recognizing the psychedelic (“mind-manifesting”) dynamics inherent in all life.
