    Hillary S Webb has devoted the first chapter of this book to describe the research methodology used by her in studying the Andean Philosphy which makes it easier for the reader to understand the book I particularly liked the research methodology used This book could be read by a student as well as anyone interested in the Andean Philosophy Being an Indian I found some ideas in the book which were in resonance with those of Indian Vedic Philosphy And some ideas were totally different too This book really opens up your mind to different ways of thinking Also I was very much shocked to find that these ideas were not considered as a branch of Philosophy just because they are ever evolving and unfixed The Andeans consider contrasting things like day and night male and female good and evil etc to be different only apparently and the same in essence I found the last teaching Hillary received with the help of San Pedroa kind of medicine prepared by the Shamans in Peru to be very interestingor maybe I should use the word enlightening In that teaching she had the experience of being everything and nothing at the same time I could not understand it completely but then I will have to experience it to comprehend it I think that is the best learning experience anyone could ever have One main aspect of this Philosophy is that your learning is complete only if you have experienced it yourself At the end I must say that this book has brought out the precious ideas of the Andean Philosophy to the rest of the world Anyone interested in sprituality or metaphysics or philosophy should definitely read this book Also those who are eager to know about the culture of the Andeans may read it Whatever your interest may be you will surely find some food for thought in Hillary's work PS I got this book through Firstreads Giveaway

    I had long been having talks with my South American friend about yanantin and other cultural differences we had She tried to explain to me but I just wasn't getting it It all sounded very confusing and if I may say strange When she suggested I try Hillary Webb's book to try and understand about duality I agreed When I saw the title of the book I almost put my head down and cried Oh no A long boring academic book that I am going to need 4 dictionaries and a thesaurus and any number of other books just to understand I was soooooooooo wrongOnce I took a deep breathe had all my dictionaries piled around me a thermos of coffee by my arm I decided it was time to plunge in And plunge I didTwo hours later my son asked me what was for supperI couldn't believe it The book is so well written that the pages just flew past And no I didn't have to open up a dictionary onceYanantin and Masintin are a remarkable set of beliefs that the Andean and other cultures believe in They believe in complementary dualism It is the view that opposites like malefemale oldyoung are dependent on each other to be whole and that opposites are integral to being wholeThis book isn't just about Yanantin and Masintin but also about the author's own time spent in South America the things she learned about herself and others and why she had been so intrigued the first time she had heard the words 'complementary opposites'A well written account that explains the purpose of Yanantin and Misintin in the Andean culture intertwined with one woman's personal journey through the Andean culture won my copy on GoodReads FirstReads and my review is unsolicited

    Don't judge a book by its cover THAT perfect definition It looks like a very uninteresting book probably because it's a scholarly work but it's actually not When you've come to read it it's very informative This made me see opposites eg goodbad manwoman in a different perspective rather as contradicting the other I'd come to learn that they actually complement each other There should be a balance A coexistence Also one of the things I learned in this book that I'm very thankful and will never forget is the 'tupay tinkuy tae and trujiy' I will apply it in my lifeI gave this a 3 because I did enjoy reading and have gained new knowledge from it considering I do not like non fiction Might read it again in the future PS Thank you Ms Webb for sending me a signed copy Cheers
