The Brazilian Puzzle - Culture on the Borderlands of the Western World (Paper)

David J. Hess's The Brazilian Puzzle - Culture on the Borderlands of the Western World (Paper)

How do Brazilians think about their own culture in comparison with those of North America and Western Europe? "The Brazilian Puzzle" provides a unique picture of everyday life in Brazil viewed from a Comparative perspective. Brazilian scholars and Brazilianists explore a range of topics in everyday life in Brazil, including sports, music, voluntary associations, religion, political practices, race and gender, and poor neighborhoods. The authors show how Brazilian culture involves a complex negotiation in which the traditional values of hierarchy and personalism permeate even the most modern institutions. "The Brazilian Puzzle" is emblematic of the new era in Brazilian studies in which Brazilian scholars are leading the way. Many of the authors draw on the Work of the Brazilian anthropologist Robert DaMatta, who has questioned the perspective of observers from developed Western countries. DaMatta argues that they often project their own Categories onto Brazilian society, and instead he suggests that Latin Americans and other peoples develop their own theories rooted in their own unique experiences. In this way "The Brazilian Puzzle" contributes to the end of an era of Brazilianists and the decolonizing of area studies.
उत्तरी अमेरिका और पश्चिमी यूरोप की तुलना में ब्राजीलियाई अपनी संस्कृति के बारे में कैसे सोचते हैं? "ब्राजीलियाई पहेली" ब्राजील में तुलनात्मक परिप्रेक्ष्य से देखा गया रोजमर्रा की जिंदगी की एक अनोखी तस्वीर प्रदान करता है। ब्राजील के विद्वानों और ब्राजीलियाई लोग ब्राजील में खेल, संगीत, स्वैच्छिक संघ, धर्म, राजनीतिक प्रथाओं, जाति और लिंग और गरीब पड़ोस सहित रोजमर्रा की जिंदगी में विषयों की एक श्रृंखला का पता लगाते हैं। लेखकों ने दिखाया कि कैसे ब्राजील की संस्कृति में जटिल बातचीत शामिल है जिसमें पदानुक्रम और व्यक्तित्व के पारंपरिक मूल्य भी सबसे आधुनिक संस्थानों में प्रवेश करते हैं। "ब्राजीलियाई पहेली" ब्राजील के अध्ययनों में नए युग का प्रतीक है जिसमें ब्राजील के विद्वान मार्ग का नेतृत्व कर रहे हैं। कई लेखकों ने ब्राजील के मानवविज्ञानी रॉबर्ट दामाट्टा के काम पर आकर्षित किया, जिन्होंने विकसित पश्चिमी देशों के पर्यवेक्षकों के परिप्रेक्ष्य पर सवाल उठाया है। दामाट्टा का तर्क है कि वे अक्सर ब्राजील के समाज पर अपनी श्रेणियां पेश करते हैं, और इसके बजाय वह सुझाव देते हैं कि लैटिन अमेरिकियों और अन्य लोग अपने स्वयं के अनूठे अनुभवों में अपनी सिद्धांतों को विकसित करते हैं। इस तरह "ब्राजीलियाई पहेली" ब्राजीलियाई लोगों के युग के अंत में और क्षेत्रीय अध्ययनों के decolonizing में योगदान देता है।
