MUNIZ GARCIA, David Arturo. The Teuchitlán Tradition through the Works of Phil C. Weigand: The Presence of Agent and his Discourse in Western Mexican Archaeology. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2016, vol.37, n.148, pp.63-100. ISSN 2448-7554.

The narratives that authors' in the various Social Sciences generate are significant because they largely determine the understanding of a specific topic of study. In archaeology, however, little attention has been paid to this issue. The generation of knowledge impacts the society that receives it, whether the author is aware of this or not. The particular type of discourse produced by Phil Weigand has been appropriated by the academic community, politicians, and the general public in different ways, to distinct degrees, and to various ends, such that it now forms part of the corpus of knowledge on the pre-Hispanic past of Western Mexico. Deconstructing this discourse will allow us to gain a better understanding of its component parts and then to re-signify them in discourses more congruent with current theoretical perceptions.
