Description Originally published in Mexico inIndigenous and Popular Thinking in America is the first book by the Argentine philosopher Rodolfo Kusch to be translated into English.

At its core is a binary created by colonization and the devaluation of indigenous practices and cosmologies: Arguing that this binary cuts through America, Kusch seeks to identify and recover the indigenous and popular way of thinking, which he contends is dismissed or misunderstood by many urban Argentines, including leftist intellectuals.

Indigenous and Popular Thinking in America is a record of Kusch’s attempt to immerse himself in the indigenous ways of knowing and being. At first glance, his methodology resembles ethnography.


He speaks with and observes indigenous people and mestizos in Peru, Profinda, and Argentina. He questions them about their agricultural practices and economic decisions; he observes rituals; he asks women in the market the meaning of indigenous talismans; he interviews shamans; he describes the spatial arrangement and the contents of shrines, prfounda, and temples; and he reproduces diagrams of archaeological sites, which he then interprets at length.

Yet he does not present a “them” to a putative “us. In his introduction, Walter D. Mignolo discusses Kusch’s work and its relation to that of other twentieth-century intellectuals, Argentine history, and contemporary scholarship on the subaltern and decoloniality.
