FIALHO, Alex; MONTEZI, Aline Vilarinho; AMBROSIO, Fabiana Follador e  and  AIELLO-VAISBERG, Tânia Maria José. The collective imaginary of physical education students about the life healthy. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.3, pp.626-631. ISSN 0101-3289.


We investigated the collective imagination of Physical Education students about a healthy life.


We performed an interview with 27 students of Physical Education, drawing upon the procedure Thematic Story-Drawing with Theme "a person who leads a healthy life." The productions were considered in the light of the psychoanalytic method and uptake of interpretive fields of meaning underlying affective-emotional.


The interpretation work allowed for perceiving a field called "individual responsability", which is structured based on the belief in that health would be a state that depends mainly on individual initiatives and actions.


The picture found indicates that the field operates positive effects toward personal initiative, but it produces, as a problematic consequence, an obfuscation about the importance of environmental factors, which depend on social and governamental actions.

Keywords : Collective imaginary; Healthy habits; Health promotion; Physical education students.
