Ficção Filosófica e Perspectivismo Ameríndio: Diálogos conceituais entre Vilém Flusser e Eduardo Viveiros de Castro
Based on the theoretical contribution of Vilém Flusser to the themes of identity and identification, this article approximates Flusserian thought and the Amerindian perspectivism of the Brazilian anthropologist Eduardo Viveiro de Castro. It argues, on the basis of the book Vampyroteuthis Infernalis, that Flusser performs an exercise in perspectivism, as he proposes an imaginative experience allowing readers to adopt the point of view of another nonhuman being, in this case, the octopus.
