Viveiros de Castro, Eduardo

   Brazilian anthropologist at the Museu Nacional of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and director of the Núcleo de Transformações Indígenas research group. Viveiros de Castro has held important posts in Cambridge, England, and Paris and has written extensively about Amazonian indigenous peoples, especially the Araweté. His publications include From the Enemy’s Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society (1992) and “Cosmological Deixis and Amerindian Perspectivism” (1998). Viveiros de Castro’s discussion on perspectivism is among the most important recent writings on shamanism and has also influenced cultural critics and theorists such as Bruno Latour.
