DELLA FONTE, Sandra Soares. Postmodern agenda and neopositivism: connected antipodes. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.110, pp.35-56. ISSN 1678-4626.

This paper focuses on two questions: what is the place of post-structuralism and neopragmatism in the production of knowledge on curriculum studies? What are their ethical, political and philosophical consequences for the educational field in general? When dealing with these issues, the text brings into question some beliefs about these two theoretical trends, such as: they contribute to oppose the Positivist tradition; they strengthen the notion of democratic coexistence by defending plurality and difference; finally, they enrich the production of academic knowledge in education and the creation of innovative practices for experiencing the curriculum.

Palabras clave : Education research; Curriculum; Post-modern; Neopositivism; Ontology.
