Projet de recherche

One of the most controversial and concerning issues worldwide in recent decades has been the collapse of the world’s capitalist system and the impact this has generated on nature, where global warming shows that humanity has broken its own record of devastation.

Innumerable answers have been provided to this problem, among which is the Paradigm of “Living Well,” a proposal that arises from the worldview of the Andean indigenous peoples who recognize nature as a subject with rights and propose the deconstruction of development due to individuality and anthropocentrism.

The general objective of the research is to analyze if the “Living Well” paradigm is a real alternative, with global projection, to the linear development that has led the world to the commodification of nature.
