BIZERRIL NETO, José. Mestres do Tao: tradição, experiência e etnografia. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2005, vol.11, n.24, pp.87-105. ISSN 0104-7183.

In this article I analyse the performative dimension that constitutes the transmission of tradition in taoist lineage located in Brazil, from the perspective of the anthropology of experience. The idea of knowing in taoism is based on a practical notion: one knows the legacy of tradition through personal embodied experience. The very possibility of knowing is based upon a personal relation between master and apprentice, inserted on a dialogical and genealogical.

Keywords : body; experience; performance; taoism.
