SOUZA, Juliano de and MARCHI JUNIOR, Wanderley. For a sociology of scientific production in the academic field of Physical Education in Brazil. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp. 349-360. ISSN 1980-6574. http://dx.doi.org/10.5016/1980-6574.2011v17n2p349.
In this article, we mean to show some fronts of assessment that can be opened to consider the formation and structure of the academic field of Physical Education in Brazil based on the Sociology of Science as incorporated in the work of Pierre Bourdieu. To this end, we recover an example of ad hoc and the recent "epistemological tensions" highlighted in the subfield of socio-cultural production in Physical Education, more precisely, the positions taken materialized in the Brazilian Journal of Sport Science on behalf of the publication of articles: "Anthropology, Culture and Physical Education" written by Diego Luz Moura and Hugo Rodolfo Lovisolo in 2008 and the article" Anthropology, Culture and Physical Education: Considerations about the article of the Moura and Lovisolo" written by Jocimar Daolio in 2009. It is the exception that our aim is more from this example to develop the arguments and empirical and theoretical moorings of what exactly to look into the case itself, or even take sides against the positions presented.
