BARONI, Daiana Paula Milani  and  FERREIRA, Arthur Arruda Leal. Rethinking the act of research - negotiations, compositions and affections. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.2, pp.226-238.  Epub Dec 01, 2019. ISSN 1688-7026.

This article makes some contributions to think about the research method from Latour and other authors such as Despret and Favret-Saada, in order to bring visibility to new ways of positioning oneself as a researcher. In this sense, the researcher is in a movement of translation and negotiation, in a course of action composed of diverse agents. Once the sciences are conceived as not being out from the rest of the world's dispersed events, then the scientist can go through a myriad of possibilities of intervention by following the actions and their agents. Thus, what would be in question would be the production of good generalizations and not the proof of previously established truths. In this sense, the "interest" discussed by Latour would be represented by the capacity of articulation of the sciences with themes beyond their borders, composing other translations, broader and more inclusive of what surrounds them.

Keywords : TAR method; translations; negotiations; affectations.
