The proposal of this second volume of Leituras is to address the debate on the global South from other models of constructing reality and to speculate on the potential impact of alternative forms of organization on current times. To this end, it compiles a series of non-Western cosmologies which, while not new, present renewed interest and originality for their reduced visibility. Such forms of organization condense a more integrated kind of involvement of the individual with the collective, but also with his symbolic and natural environment; therefore, they have a direct impact on how reality is understood and constructed. This e-book features images that are best viewed on tablets.
