Abstract

ZANELLA, Andréa Vieira. Creator activity, knowledge production and researcher's training: some reflections. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.16, n.1, pp. 135-145. ISSN 1807-0310.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822004000100011.

Creativity is one of those topics that has always been in vogue, with larger visibility in some historical moments. We live today one of these moments, for the demand of the capitalistic society, regarding the work market, falls upon creative and pluralistics subjects who are able to work as a team and with initiative. "Super subjects", in fact, distant from the social and educational conditions in which most of Brazilian people are placed and that could forge them. Creating is, therefore, a fashion word, but its presence and origin take us back to difficult times to precise, even because it characterizes the human being and all his productions, including knowledge productions. Independently of its goals, a creator activity is based on a view that breaks up the immediate. The constitution of this view happens from a process, from deliberated interventions which intend to stop the explosion of disconnected images and messages that characterizes the present reality, displacing it from meanings related to criticism and its change. Is is justified, therefore, the necessity of constant reflections and researchs about this topic, even though educators training is a condition for new views to be forged.

Keywords : creativity; creator activity; subject constitution; researcher's training; post-graduation.
