          Abstract

          Si bien las preocupaciones por el ser, lo que existe y las cualidades ontológicas del cosmos no son nuevas en antropología, en las últimas dos décadas somos testigos de un verdadero “giro ontológico” que focaliza en los modos en que cada sociedad define los existentes del mundo y las relaciones entre ellos. Dicho giro se erige sobre el cuestionamiento de la Gran División y el naturalismo occidental como ontología dominante y constituye una reacción al giro lingüístico de los años 1980. A lo largo de este artículo presentaremos sus principales vertientes en antropología (la corriente inglesa, la francesa y la norteamericana), echando luz sobre sus semejanzas, diferencias y recorridos. Nos proponemos reflexionar sobre los alcances y limitaciones de la propuesta metodológica que él contiene y discutir la operatividad de estos abordajes para las realidades etnográficas con las que trabajamos en Argentina.

          Translated abstract

          The interest for the Self, for what exists, and for the ontological properties of the Cosmos is not a new concern in the history of Anthropology. However, only in the last two decades has the discipline undertaken an “Ontological Turn”. This perspective focuses on how different societies define the entities that inhabit the world and the relationships between them. The ontological turn is built on the critiques made to what is named as the Great Division (Nature/Culture), and to Western Naturalism as moderns’ dominant ontology. The turn is also a reaction to the linguistic turn dominating during the 1980s. In this article we present the most salient traditions in the ontological turn, the English, the French and the North American one, highlighting differences and similarities between them. We reflect on the scope and limitations of the methodological approach that this turn proposes, in order to discuss the possibilities opened by this approach in the analysis of ethnographic situations in Argentina that we work with.
