MARASCHIN, Cleci. To research and to intervene. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.16, n.1, pp.98-107. ISSN 0102-7182. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822004000100008.
This text discusses intervention-research as an action that creates possibilities of interconnections between research and extension in universitarian daily life from the basic theoretical concepts of Biology of Knowledge. Produced from a network of conversations which constitutes the explanatory scientific domain, the condition of dependent-observer is taken in order to understand the possibilities of exercising authorial function, as well as the resultant ethical implications. It's postulated that intervention-research methodology can constitute itself as an inovation when proposing methodological perspectives of action capable of sustaining interventions that sustain themselves beyond the research in itself.
Keywords : university research; intervention-research; biology of knowledge.
