A estranha vida dos objetos: Os alcances e limites de uma historiografia da ciência a partir dos instrumentos científicos.

Janaina Lacerda Furtado

Resumo


O estudo histórico da cultura material já tem uma longa estrada. Na história da ciência particularmente, a cultura material ganhou visibilidade a partir de meados da década de 1980 sob a influência do livro Leviatan and the Air Pump de Simon Schaffer e Steven Shapin que colocou o objeto no centro de suas investigações. O estudo e a discussão sobre a cultura material estão hoje presentes em diversos campos (arqueologia, sociologia, antropologia, história) que focam diferentes objetos (livros, tapeçaria, ruínas e instrumentos científicos) em diferentes abordagens. Este artigo pretende discutir os alcances e limites da historiografia das ciências a partir da cultura material, apresentando, e discutindo, as propostas teóricas e metodológicas surgidas nos últimos anos.


Palavras-chave


Historiografia das Ciências; Cultura Material das Ciências; Metodologia
