SIEGMANN, Christiane and FONSECA, Tania Mara Galli. Thinking case-studies as a strategy for producing knowledge. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.21, pp. 53-63. ISSN 1414-3283. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-32832007000100006.
This text establishes that the act of researching resembles the act of talking, constituting as it also does a subjection device and a space for creation. It proposes a singular and poetic manner of creating, at one and the same time an investigation and professional performanceprocess in an attempt to supersede a mechanicist and dichotomous method of investigation. A methodological strategy that uses the analysis of thinking case-studies, prepared from the clinical experience of the Occupational Therapist, is presented, which takes as its conceptual web, references from the fields of Philosophy of Difference, Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Literature.
