Abstract

Peasant farming persists despite centuries of attempts to make it disappear. Revisiting Daoism, the duality between nature and culture in Western philosophy, the archetypes and myths in Jungian psychology, and emotions in neurophysiology, new attributes are suggested for peasant farming, providing some indication of why peasant farming cannot be compared to any other form of farming. It is because peasant farming has been excluded for centuries, and because it has been spared the contra- dictions and shortfalls of a Western productivist model, that it still keeps, often intact, the essence of what could become a new Social Contract for humanity.
