Abstract

RABELLO, Rodrigo. The contribution of the history of concepts to information science: categorical-abstract and analytical-causal dimensions. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2010, vol.39, n.3, pp.35-46. ISSN 0100-1965.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652010000300003.

The history of concepts, albeit still little explored by information science, can provide important contributions for the study of key concepts that constitute the theoretical-conceptual framework in a scientific context. Thus, the history of concepts is presented as a tool for the study of diachronic and synchronic features of the scientific concept in Information Science. For such, it was imperative to understand the intersection of the categorical-abstract and analytical-causal dimensions, both relevant for constituting the very proposition of the history of concepts elaborated by Reinhart Koselleck.

Keywords : Scientific concepts; History of concepts; Epistemology; Information Science.
