ROCHA, Maria José Pereira. Gender patterns in short of Machado de Assis. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp. 18-22. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article focuses on a reflection on the plots of male and female in the stories of Machado de Assis. This way, the text adopts a unique analysis drawn from the perspective of neo-pragmatism as an ad hoc theory, understood as a philosophical movement that focuses on conversation. The shaft that drives the analysis is the notion of redescription of R. Rorty as the task of imagination. This exercise allows us to describe ourselves and others seeking to make a new approach. Based on this understanding, we emphasize the elements that allow rethink the warps of male and female in the tales of the author. The attempt is to devise and reinvent a story based on stories by Machado de Assis that serve as a pretext to engineer ideas and reflection that will compose a new meaning.

Keywords : Gender; Neopragmatism; Redescription.
