Abstract

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 1807-5762.  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.

Keywords : Occupational Therapy; Psychology; research techniques; methodological strategies; thinking case-study; knowledge.
