“Arqueológicas. La razón perdida (Archaeologics: The Reason Lost)”, by Felipe Criado-Boado is a book published by Edicions Bellaterra from Barcelona (Catalunya, Spain) in 2012, whose text explores topics such as archaeological theory, the conditions for the production of archaeological knowledge, and the theory of interpretation. It proposes an original approach towards the problem of constructing meaning in a society marked by multivocality and multiculturalism, in which the necessary respect for alternative forms of knowledge often collides with scientific knowledge. The book seeks a solution to this problem which, by avoiding relativist and solipsistic subjectivism, facilitates intercultural understanding.
