Abstract

Reflexive criticism focused its attention on writing texts, neglecting the experience of observation, on which the practice of field research is built, and it rarely paid attention to the experience of researchers. The triple relationship established between the anthropologist, the worldand the “other” reveals the deep interrelation between the three levels of this “complex isotopy”. This essay addresses the problem of how a person can interact with another within the ethnographic practice. Ethnographic research doesn’t consist only in dialogues but also in bodily experiences that have a key role in the production of ethnographic representations. Experiential anthropologists believe that we must reflect on the knowledge that is produced, by participating actively in the performances that is being executing, permeating in the field research, physicallyexperiencing it and being able to find in ourselves those meanings otherwise inaccessible.
