  6. 6. 2. Human-animal relations: Unsettling established categories
  7. 7. Nature: culture “Undoubtedly, the existence of mankind is recognised in the reindeer's decision-making, however rudimentary and shortsighted the latter may be. Men and reindeer thus represent two interacting populations; both form social groups, and are guided in political/economic decision- making, which takes the other into account, by very different sets of goals and values.” Ingold (1974), On Reindeer and Men
  8. 8. Human: Non human “Animism could be defined as an ontology which postulates the social character of relations between humans and non-humans: the space between nature and society is itself social.” Vivieros de Castro (1998), Amazonian perspectivism
  9. 9. Whose world? Whose health?
