Cambiando el tema: sobre el matrimonio entre primos y otras cosas

  • Adam Kuper
  • Blanca Cárdenas Carrión
Palabras clave: Parentesco, matrimonio entre primos, primos cruzados, Charles Darwin

Resumen

El pecado original de la antropología fue dividir al mundo en civilizados y salvajes. Los sistemas sociales de todos aquellos Otros, supuestamente descansaban sobre la base de las relaciones consanguíneas y, por ello, los antropólogos se convirtieron de inmediato en expertos en estudios relacionados con grupos primitivos y en torno al tema del parentesco. Sin embargo, en la década de 1970, los sistemas occidentales de parentesco comenzaron a sufrir un cambio radical. Simultáneamente, las antiguas ortodoxias sobre el parentesco se derrumbaron en el campo de la antropología y los jóvenes etnógrafos en general perdieron interés en el tema. Pese a esto, los sistemas de parentesco no desaparecieron en el mundo y para entenderlos tendríamos primero que abandonar la postura sustentada en la oposición entre lo moderno y lo tradicional, el Occidente y el Resto.
