Deconstrucción metodológica de la crisis paradigmática en Venezuela


  • García Palma, Raúl


Within the debate between the paradigms qualitative and quantitative in the investigation of Human Sciences, it arises a historiography of subjects and authors who also oppose metaphors, verbal as much nonverbal. Each metaphor or model of representation has been discussed between, "...ideas that sustain them, attitudes that consolidate it, theory and praxis that it demonstrates to his use and particular ways to make science, to orient processes and to cause historical accomplishments" (Barrera Morales, 2005, P. 90). In the previous observation, it seems to lack how metatheory is constructed to expose what explains how or what it is a methodologic paradigm. "An element is defined not as much reason why it is, but reason why it is not" (Andrade, 2004, p. 103). From this declaration, the previous model is not a metaphor that explains so that of the knowledge, also how weapon. But they exist in the university historiography of Venezuela, authors who work or they approach a model on the methodologic paradigms that are important to distinguish. From this specific weight of the representation on the real human like metaphors, it is that it will be had to approach, through the documentary interpretation, diverse documents or fields.
