Abstract in Portuguese
Esta tese é um estudo da ecologia e da cosmologia dos Enawene-Nawe, povo de língua Aruak, habitante da Amazônia Meridional, na faixa de transição entre o Cerrado e a Floresta Tropical. Sua abordagem está voltada para a interface cultura/natureza e, com base no material etnográfico, examina a hipótese de que a cultura é a condição genérica e primeira, e a natureza um momento particular e secundário, resultado de um processo de diferenciação da cultura – concepção diametralmente oposta à teoria evolutiva, típica do pensamento científico moderno.

Abstract in English
This thesis is a study of the ecology and cosmology of the Enawene-Nawe, people of the Aruak language, inhabitants of the southern Amazon, in the transitional region between the savanna and the tropical forest. The study explores the interface culture/nature and, based upon ethnographic material, examines the hypothesis that culture is a generic and primary condition and nature a particular moment and secondary, the result of a process of cultural differentiation – a concept diametrically opposed to the theory of evolution, typical of modern scientific thinking.
