A Different Philosophy: The Tojolabal Thought
In this article, we will make an attempt to think outside the capitalist system. And we will do that through the tojolabal thinking, a community in the South of Mexico that has a different philosophical view. The argument is that these languages of these communities have different roots, thus, an ideological position that tends not to think in the same way as Western philosophy. We will compare the language of the tojolabals with the Indo-European languages as well as their political and economic organization. The text’s sources are the philosophers Enrique Dussel and Carlos Lenkersdorf.
