Course Description

This seminar will essentially represent an exercise in methodology. A number of issues relating to the acquisition of knowledge from ancient systems of representation will be explored. The emphasis will be given to the intellectual processes involved. The main techniques used to decode the past, such as, analogy, upstreaming, contextual analysis, will also be put under scrutiny. Students will be invited to use examples drawn from Andean or Mesoamerican cultures.
