ARENAS FERNANDEZ, Luis Acatzin. Illusions without Subject in the Ethnic Market. Estud. sociol [online]. 2023, vol.41, n.121, pp.95-120.  Epub 09-Jun-2023. ISSN 2448-6442.

Is the dynamics of tourism nothing more than a sham? Do travelers play as if they believe in the authenticity of the staged ethnicity? This document raises a theoretical reflection on those tourists who know well, who are aware that the ethnic staging’s with which they are in tourist contexts are created for their enjoyment, but who, even so, are involved in them with certain fascination. After exposing Eric Cohen’s proposal about the recreational tourist, it is argued here that this idea creates a theoretical problem: an ontological perspective of the tourist as a cynical subject. Given this, the concepts of interpassivity and illusions without a subject are proposed as a possible route of reflection.

Palabras llave : illusions without subject; interpassivity; cynicism; authenticity; tourism.
