MUNOZ, Wilson  and  MANSILLA, Miguel. Epistemological conflation: Studies about Aymara pentecostalism in Chile (1975-1998). Cinta moebio [online]. 2015, n.52, pp.1-16. ISSN 0717-554X.

The Aymara Pentecostalism is one of the most important religious movements in Chile. In the last decades it has been produced a considerable amount of sociological and anthropological research about this movement and this has resulted in the emergency of a particular field. However, these studies have not the thematized the relevance of the theoretical assumptions that underlie in their analysis. Due to this, our aim is to develop an epistemological analysis of the theoretical assumptions behind the studies about the Aymara Pentecostalism in Chile, elucidating specifically how they have used the difference between structure and action when they aim to understand the features of this socio-religious movement. This will allow us to elucidate the types of epistemological conflation (Archer) that take place in the explanations develop by these authors, assessing its theoretical contribution.

Keywords : epistemology; action; conflation; aymara; pentecostalism.
