The Mestizo Mind is an entrancing investigation of colonization and globalization. Looking at the fifteenth-century colonization of Latin America, Serge Gruzinski documents the melange that resulted: colonized mating with colonizers; Indians joining the Catholic Church and colonial government; and Amerindian visualizations of Jesus and Perseus. These encounters yielded a new culture, a new individual, a new phenomenon called globalization, and 500 years later, the mestizo mind, a universal state of multicultural thinking. A masterful alchemy of history, anthropology, philosophy, and visual analysis, The Mestizo Mind offers an uncommon and rewarding exploration of the connection between the individual and globalization.
