    Los textos aquí reunidos giran alrededor de prácticas rituales y de representaciones que la literatura antropoló-gica cataloga bajo la etiqueta de “chamanismo”. Descrito primero por misioneros cristianos en sus recorridos por Siberia, Asia y la América indígena y calificado de paganismo diabólico. Ya en los albores del siglo xx la psiquiatría y la psicología en cambio ven las conductas rituales del chamán, ya sea como síntomas de patología mental, o como recursos terapéuticos contra los mismos. Paralelamente, los trabajos del historiador Mircea Eliade, ampliamente popularizados, las califican de “técnicas arcaicas del éxtasis”, experiencia religiosa primordial de contacto directo con los espíritus, origen de todas las religiones.
