BAUM, Carlos  and  MARASCHIN, Cleci. Cognitive Politics: Ontologies of self-awareness. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.3, pp.53-76. ISSN 2238-152X.

In this text the discussion is made considering the propositions about cognitive politics, sugesting that representation can be achieved through different politics that distribute the actors involved in different ways. We explore three different politics for composing, representing, recognizing a cognitive process, self-awareness. 1) A measurement politic, performed by experimental psychology, mainly through the application of psychological tests; 2) a politic of simulation, a result of the neurosciences acting from brain imaging processes with digital technologies and 3) a politic of metamorphosis constituted in the research-intervention practices. The methodology of this analisys follows the suggestion of Mol (2002), and investigates the sessions of methods, materials and procedures in scientific articles. These sessions specify as much as possible the research practices. This reinforces the idea that the practices that allow objects to manifest are crucial to what can be said of them.

Keywords : Cognitive Policies; Self-Awareness; Neuroimaging; Psychological Testing; Intervention-Research.
