Inteligência Abstraída, Crianças Silenciadas: as Avaliações de Inteligência

Maria Aparecida Affonso Moysés Cecília Azevedo Lima Collares About the authors

The intelligence tests, which essentially portray the classifi-cation of people, are related to the concept of eugenism. Within these tests, Psychology establishes parameters of their fundamental clinical reasoning, through the necessity of abstracting and silencing the subjects in order to place them under a "clinical regard". In this text, the necessity of subverting these evaluations is put up for debate, in an attempt to abandon the seeking of faults, and in order to discover the real child as a historical being.
