SANTOS, Maria Aparecida dos. The frontier researcher and other subjectivities: a matter of method. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.spe, pp.1160-1180. ISSN 1808-4281.

The general goal of this article is to map the frontier researcher's routes and changes. By frontier researcher, I mean the professional that, totally involved in his/her research, publicly assumes his/her political stand of looking for new concrete routes for his/her reflexions on science and its practices, including the matter of method. Inspired by the Actor Network Theory (ANT), I follow the tracks made by acting agents involved in the introduction of natural, integral and complementary therapies in the Brazilian Integrated Health System (SUS). I raise the question of how it is to do research at the frontier and ponder on the subjectivities produced in the process of researching from this instigating point.

Keywords : researcher's routes; actor network theory; natural, integral and complementary therapies in the Brazilian Integrated Health System.
