El nahualismo

by Roberto Martínez González

A reconstruction of one of the vaguest and most complex concepts in Mesoamerican cosmovision, based on comparative analysis of data from colonial and contemporary sources. Nahualism is examined across different indigenous cultures of Mesoamerica. The volume shows cultural continuity through time and space, from the Olmecs to contemporary psychomystical modern groups, from southern Central America to northern Zacatecas and Durango. The symbolic system is not immutable, but is built on a foundation that has survived very complex cultural dynamics. In Spanish.
