Sciamanesimo paleolitico europeo. Paradigmi ermeneutici e riesame fenomenologico dell’arte parietale franco-cantabrica

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] The Jean Clottes theory and David Lewis-Williams on shamanic origins of Palaeolithic art seems to resist after two decades of consensus and attacks. But it's time to double review: that of the circumstantial paradigm that binds the trance art of decorated caves and the methods of analysis with which this art should be approached. Adopting a phenomenological and cognitive perspective, this paper lays the groundwork for a interpretative model that recalibrates and develops the shamanistic hypothesis: the Franco-Cantabrian cave is a dreamscape, a place of incubatio and oniromantica performance.
