TOLA, Florencia. "Eu não estou só(mente) em meu corpo" A pessoa e o corpo entre os Toba (Qom) do Chaco argentino. Mana [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.2, pp. 499-519. ISSN 0104-9313. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-93132007000200008.
In this article, I analyze the attributes that define person and body among the Toba (Qom) of the Argentine Chaco. An interest in these concepts led to an examination of some of the components of the body such as corporal fluids, the lqui'i (usually translated as soul), various names and body heat. Finally, I discuss the mechanisms of individuation that operate event when the person is conceived as a bundle where relations intersect.
