BRAZAO, Jose Carlos Chaves. Transdisciplinarity as a methodological perspective for a clinic of the subjectivities. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2014, vol.9, n.2, pp. 268-278. ISSN 1809-8908.

The purpose of this article is to present the transdisciplinarity as a methodological perspective for working in the clinic with the subjectivities. We will assume that subjectivity is changeable, suffering transformations co-extending to social and political changes, according to factors which are specific to each society. To follow its vicissitudes, a method that fulfills the requirements of the demand itself is necessary, that is, to maintain sufficient technical and theoretical openness to allow the subjective spontaneity and the consequent capture of the phenomenon. The freedom in the use of concepts, turning them into analytical operators, is a key factor in this method and, for this operation, the skill of the therapist comes into play. We will connect the transdisciplinary method with the perspectives of science of Latour and Serres, who understand that the scientific knowledge is the effect of the convergence of multiple factors, forming a network of variable geometry which finds echoes in Deleuze's philosophy.

Keywords : Transdisciplinarity; Methodology; Clinic; Subjectivity; Epistemology.
