This collection brings together leading anthropologists, historians, philosophers, and artificial-intelligence researchers to discuss the sciences and mathematics used in various Eastern, Western, and Indigenous societies, both ancient and contemporary. The authors analyze prevailing assumptions about these societies and propose more faithful, sensitive analyses of their ontological views about realitya step toward mutual understanding and translatability across cultures and research fields. Science in the Forest, Science in the Past is a pioneering interdisciplinary exploration that will challenge the way readers interested in sciences, mathematics, humanities, social research, computer sciences, and education think about deeply held notions of what constitutes reality, how it is apprehended, and how to investigate it.

"Is there one big Science, or are there many legitimate forms of knowledge? Are primary qualities the sole object of scientific inquiry, or is there a space for investigating the multidimensionality of phenomena? Are the ontological foundations of different systems of worlding incompatible, or do they allow hybridization and the expression of foundational principles? This innovative book tackles these questions afresh by bringing together an impressive set of international scholars in fields ranging from ancient civilizations and non-Western cultures to the computing sciences. Their deconstruction of the sterile deadlock between universalism and relativism will be a milestone for years to come." -- Philippe Descola, Collge de France, author of Beyond Nature and Culture "The volume is. . .well worth taking the time to read. I encourage engaging and reflecting. . ." * Aestimatio: Critical Reviews in the History of Science * "The chapters of this book constitute serious and detailed reflections on forms of knowledge that go beyond, in different times and spaces, those where anthropology as a science has historically been constituted. Approaching these differences, understanding their inflections, languages, and areas of interest, could not be more useful at a time when the prevailing forms of knowledge seem to have reached unprecedented material and social limits." * Anthropos (Translated from Spanish) *
