Title: The Persistence Of The Theory Of Indigenous Degeneration And Colonialism Within The Theoretical Foundations Of Brazilian Archeology [a Persistência Da Teoria Da Degeneração Indígena E Do Colonialismo Nos Fundamentos Da Arqueologia Brasileira]
Author: Noelli F.S.
Ferreira L.M.
Abstract: The article examines the persistence of certain theoretical foundations of Brazilian archeology and Americanist thought. The theory of indigenous degeneration and the colonialist argument display a secular continuity characterized by common political and thematic lines. This is analyzed through a comparison of some of the topics addressed in the works of seminal figures like Karl Friedrich Philipp von Martius, Francisco Adolfo de Varnhagen, and Betty Jane Meggers.
