VENTURA, Elvira Cruvinel Ferreira. O rei está nu?: pensando fenomenologicamente A roupa nova do imperador. Cad. EBAPE.BR [online]. 2004, vol.2, n.1, pp. 01-11. ISSN 1679-3951. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1679-39512004000100005.
In this essay the author had two goals: the first was to learn the phenomenology's essence, which means, to understand it in phenomenological way; second, to rearrange her thinking process, trying, this way, to move closer to the object of study of her thesis. It was not her goal to introduce/disclose "all there is" about phenomenology, but just what was essential for her in this concept. From this experience, she was able to glance the object of her study in a phenomenological way. The children's tale "The emperor's new clothes", by Hans Christian Andersen, was a source of ideas, used to illustrate relevant questions.
