POLO BLANCO, Jorge  e  PINEIRO AGUIAR, Eleder. Modern science, tortured planet. A critical reflection on the Eurocentric way of to know nature and to intervene in the environment. Izquierdas (Santiago) [online]. 2019, n.46, pp.194-217. ISSN 0718-5049.

In this theoric-reflexiv text, we will investigate critically some of the components that shaped the epistemic paradigm of European modernity, considering that quantification, mathematization and measurable objectivity are not only theoretical principles found in modern science, since they constituted something more: They were the elements through which a new worldview arose. With this, a new way of understanding and imagining nature was established; and also a new way of intervening and violating it. Some critical theories will be exposed, like the Amerindian perspectivism and the decoloniality, that have responded to this supposedly universal and homogeneous vision, concluding that despite the existence of world patterns of power and knowledge, alternatives for the wise and acting on the environment pass through decolonizing the Method of extracting resources; for which not only certain economic practices and some models of accumulation must be reversed, but in turn must neutralize the epistemic violence that justifies and protects such practices and models.
