Peruvian historian and anthropologist Luis E. Valcárcel published “Glosario” in his 1925 book De la vida Inkaica: algunas captaciones del espíritu que la animó. In “Glosario,” Valcárcel reexamines the history of Incan civilization, asserting that instead of a chaotic and scattered civilization, the Incas were an organized and developed communal society. He claims that the Incas and surrounding indigenous communities were united by an agriculturalism that permeated all aspects of society, uniting the people to the earth. Valcárcel upholds that the Incas possessed a communal style of living whereby the rights of the individual were considered insignificant in comparison to the needs of the community. All individuals, Valcárcel writes, were required to work and to contribute to communal stores of agricultural and utilitarian goods at a level appropriate to their capacity. Valcárcel also comments on the sophistication and originality of Incan arts, dance, poetry, architecture, and culture, and suggests that modern Peru should return to the values of Incan civilization, such as agrarianism, solidarity, love of the earth, discipline, hard work, spare intellectualism, simple customs, and communal living.
