REVAH, Daniel. The (re)configuration of the past in the constructivist speech. Estilos clin. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.24, pp.190-209. ISSN 1415-7128.

This article focuses and analyses some features related to the emergence of constructivism in Brazil. Constructivism is here considered as a pedagogical speech that emerges in the decade of 1980 as part of a process that (re)ordered the preceding educational speeches. This process that involves and (re)configures the past results in what can be taken as the origin of constructivism in Brazil, directly attached to certain professional and institutional paths. In the present analysis, "constructivism" is taken as a word that has been transformed in a resonance signifier - fundamental operation to produce this emergence as well as the correlated (re)configuration of the past.

Keywords : educational speeches; resonance signifier; constructivism; history of education.
