SCHAURICH, Diego; CROSSETTI, Maria da Graça Oliveira and PADOIN, Stela Maris de Mello. Buberian philosophy and the Brazilian Stricto Sensu postgraduate production: integrative review. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.64, n.6, pp.1132-1140. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672011000600022.
This integrative review aimed to characterize the knowledge production of the Brazilian Stricto Sensu postgraduate programs, developed in the light of Martin Buber's philosophy. Data were collected from CAPES (Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel) Data Bank and the sample consisted of 66 productions. Most of the studies were developed in Education and Psychology Programs, and carried out between 2003 and 2007. Most of them were produced in the Southeastern region. The main focus was on the teaching-learning process and human sexuality. One concludes that, due to its broadness and complexity, this referential has assisted different areas of knowledge, and subsidizing distinct objects of investigation. In addition, it represents an alternative to health and to nursing for the development of relational-dialogical and humanistic care.
