Research on the quotidian creates methodologies

This text seeks to evidence the challenging and promising complexity of research in/of the quotidian. It highlights and problematizes its methodological approach exemplified by the research experience that grounds it, in the scenario of a school quotidian that is intensely, inevitably and undeniably involved with its researcher. This research leads the author to reflect about what makes him feel what he feels when he feels it and to question the actions and paths he creates or chooses to elucidate what he has elected to know. He is nevertheless aware that this reflection does not prevent him from experiencing new challenges. He feels creating new action methods is absolutely necessary since when learning what is offered by the space/time of the quotidian, permanently suspicious of the perennial aspect of certainties, no aprioristic methodological refuge sets aside observers from those who are seen. Therefore, such an approach requires that we blend the scientific perspective and the sensitive, usually poetic perception.
