  • Abstract: This study is a critical assessment of the hypothesis according to which, originally, human being was immersed in nature. Such a hypothesis implies that the past is necessarily conceived as a child which proceeds painstakingly towards us. Nevertheless, anthropology reveals that any society whatsoever is adult; any society creates equally complex forms of mediation. From this critical observation we try to imagine another “fiction” about human origin.
