ARENDT, Ronald; MORAES, Marcia  and  TSALLIS, Alexandra. For a non modern psychology: the ResearchWITH as a mesopolitical practice. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.spe, pp.1143-1159. ISSN 1808-4281.

The aim of this paper is to investigate possible contributions of philosopher Isabelle Stengers for the construction of the researchWITH, a way of doing psychology proposed by Moraes (2010). Based on the notions of subjectivity and meso-politics, affirmed by the Belgian philosopher, the paper indicates that a non- modern psychology becomes possible if we affirm the research device not as a modern arrangement, which separates subject and object, but as a practice that does not cease of assembling heterogeneous elements. Investing in meso - politics as ties politics, the paper states that the researchWITH is a meso - political practice. Do psychology research WITH the other is a way to stage a non- modern psychology, that is, a psychology whose practices are off the classic separation between subject and object, researcher and researched . The article concludes with an example of an experimental body workshop with blind people inscribed in a visual rehabilitation institution for people with visual impairment insisting that research is becoming with the encounter with the other, spawning a denser world, which was not given beforehand, one unpredictable world, made by heterogeneous elements, disparate, human, non-human, cyborgs.

Keywords : subjectivity; mesopolitic; researchWITH.
