SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio  and  SANTOS, Manoel Antônio dos. Bakhtin and the processes of human development. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.3, pp. 745-756. ISSN 0104-1282.

Bakhtin's work has been appropriated not only for linguistics but also for different areas of knowledge such as Psychology, Education and Arts. Approximating this author's work to the field of human development, it can be understood how dialogism and the Arts. In approaching this author's field of language and human development, we can understand how the dialogism and polyphony can be evoked in dialogue with developmental contexts and discursive practices. This approximation helps to rethink the scientific paradigm which views the development as a linear sequence of maturational stages and acquisitions. Beyond these reductionist considerations, Bakhtin provoques the reader to narrate their own development, which is always relational, dialogic and positioned.

Keywords : dialogic; polyphony; language development; Bakhtin.
