The subject and the collectivity: the transdialogical way in collective health

Silvani Botlender Severo Nedio Seminotti About the authors

This paper presents the results and reflections of a research carried out with the aim of understanding both hindering and facilitating aspects of the process of activation of comprehensiveness in the transdisciplinary action in a multi-professional team in collective health. This transdialogical trajectory has been based on the theory of complexity and principles of the method by Edgar Morin, and the transdisciplinary logic proposed by Basarab Nicolescu, having as its central axis the interdependence between Subject and Collectivity in the construction of health public policy. The research has showed the coexistence of two logics organizing the work processes in health: the logic of illness/disciplinarity, and the logic of comprehensiveness/transdisciplinarity.
