  • Forms a response to the ontological debate as popularized by Brazilian and Deleuzian anthropologist, Viveiros de Castro, and French anthropologists, Bruno Latour and Philippe Descola

  • Opens new avenues for research on environmental and social justice based on the value of difference and creative resistance
