SOBRE UMA EPISTEMOLOGIA EM BASES NÃO CONSOLIDADAS

Resumo


This article has as theme the science in the post-modern scenario. It tries to understand the modern science project as it was settled down by Descartes by means of showing its contemporary developments. It seeks to think the contribution of the mythos (Prometheus and Pandora particularly) to the scientific creations and discoveries. This article is based upon some theoretic evaluations such as those of Daniel Bensäid that points out the knowledge shattering into pieces of the specialized sciences. And Joseph Campbell that postulates the indissociability between the science and the human being at the world. This work makes an attempt to an adequate bibliographical synthesis able to comprehend the multidimensional focus leading to an integrated view in which the nature, the human being and the sciences communicate each other in an opened system. This system accepts the ambivalence that embraces both order and chaos as parts of the communication process.
