Abstract

MOYSES, Maria Aparecida Affonso; GERALDI, João Wanderley  and  COLLARES, Cecília Azevedo Lima. The adventures of knowledge: from tranmission to dialogue. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2002, vol.23, n.78, pp. 91-116. ISSN 0101-7330.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302002000200007.

Examining narratives, the authors analyze the hegemonic conceptions about the modes of production, circulation and appropriation of knowledge. These modes are characterized by a certain nonchalance as for the use and consequences of knowledge. The exhaustion of these concepts is revealed by the present paradigmatic crisis, which will ultimately propose new modes of knowledge production in the scientific world. The authors assume a subject is constituted by language and knowledge itself. The concept of knowledge as a transmittable thing is thus replaced by the view that knowledge constitutes through discursive processes. The authors propose the importance of memory, narratives and interlocution in these processes where subject and knowledge are closely intertwined.

Keywords : Subject; Knowledge; Paradigmatic crisis; Narrative; Time.
