SZTUTMAN, Renato. Reclaiming witchcraft and other recipes of resistance - thinking with Isabelle Stengers. Rev. Inst. Estud. Bras. [online]. 2018, n.69, pp.338-360. ISSN 2316-901X.  https://doi.org/10.11606/issn.2316-901x.v0i69p338-360.

This essay aims to explore the meanings of the concept of reclaim, as it appears in some political writings of Isabelle Stengers, philosopher of science. In her constant dialogue with Starhawk, neo-pagan activist and writer, Stengers discusses the possibilities of reclaiming certain practices - such as magic and witchcraft - which were marginalized and disqualified by the modern-capitalist world, recognizing among them modalities of political resistance and possibilities for the recovery of a “common wealth”. This essay will focus on two books of Stengers - La Sorcellerie capitaliste (with Philippe Pignarre) and Au Temps des catastrophes - which thematize recipes of resistence, recipes that provides ways to break the spells and to produce alignments with Gaia.

Palavras-chave : Isabelle Stengers; reclaim; resistence; science and magic; capitalist sorcery; intrusion of Gaia.
