Vol. 5 No. 1 (2017): Education: Challenges of an Immanent Research
Edited by Estela Scheinvar, Maria Lívia do Nascimento, and Kátia Aguiar
Thinking the present as a critical attitude has turned an urgent and necessary task for those who have abandoned a long time ago the polemics around the scientific neutrality and dived into the challenges of an immanent research. From this perspective the know-how of those who research engenders and is engendered on their own ways of researching, since those ways are invested of potencies that generate questions, images, affections. In this way of doing, which also means a way of saying and writing, the research is unfolded and experimentations gain the center of the scene, leading a movement of prudent and moving approach to the context of social practices in the field of education.
We could say, running the risk of lightening the words, that such attitude in research problematizes the social practices and the objects that correspond to them – including the research practices themselves. Proposals that find and call for different intercessors – some closer to microphysics, others to micro politics and, also, to institutionalisms – so they can give visibility to the processes of adjustment, of control and of refusal in the field of education.
