The practices of professional exercise are discussed from the feld logs of spanish national José Pérez de Barradas and colombian gregorio hernández de alba. this comparison serves to put the work of the foreigner and the colombian into perspective in relation with the construction of professional discipline, the image of nature and the indigenous, as well as the tension between the "nationalist" proposal and criticism of it by foreigners.
