COSTA, Eduardo Antonio de Pontes  and  COIMBRA, Cecília Maria Bouças. Nor creators, nor creatures: we were becoming in the productions of different knowledges. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp.125-133. ISSN 1807-0310.

The present work discusses a report on poor youngsters registered in a vocational training experience at a military unit in Rio de Janeiro. We intend to show how the instauration of a research, implied with another manner of knowing, was the expression of ruptures, intensities, de-centering, refusal of neutrality, about the knowing and making of psychology and education, and which constituted us as the research was carried out. As reference in the production of a sensitive way of doing research, we use some concept-tools from Institutional Analysis to analyze this military academy that de-centralizes and produces "young-worker-mode". Highlighting, expressively, that the production of knowledge occurred when we attempted to deconstruct knowledge and practices which the youngsters experimented in the project, aimed to potentialize multiple and diverse meanings, on the basis of dialogue, experience and the potent meetings we had with them. The field notebook, one of Institutional Analysis' tools, by registering the dense daily life of youngsters, enabled us to record the memory of so many lives, not only ours, but of the educators too and of those in charge of the project.

Keywords : Researcher; implication; becoming.
