Resumo

O artigo explora a possibilidade de desenvolver uma metodologia para estudar o surgimento da ação agentiva experimentalmente. Ele discute as limitações da pesquisa experimental clássica e busca uma perspectiva diferente sobre a questão do controle. O argumento começa por analisar como o conceito de uma experiência tem se expandido ao longo dos anos na pesquisa científica social. Em seguida, novas aberturas são consideradas para experiências além do paradigma de controle e uma metodologia de intervenções formativas, particularmente adequadas ao estudo do surgimento de ações agentivas. São sugeridas três qualidades centrais de experimentos além do paradigma de controle dentro da abordagem histórico-cultural, a saber: (1) construir sobre os conflitos de motivação dos participantes; (2) focalizar a formação de ações agentivas dos participantes de dar sentido e transformar a situação experimental (3) seguindo com expansões temporais e espaciais para além do quadro inicial da experiência. O artigo conclui com uma discussão das implicações metodológicas mais amplas dessas novas aberturas.

Biografia do Autor

Anne Laitinen, University of Helsinki
Anne Laitinen is a doctoral candidate at the Center for Research on Activity, Development and Learning (CRADLE), University of Helsinki. Her published work focuses on the Change Laboratory method and on double stimulation as a core mechanism of transformative agency.
Annalisa Sannino, University of Helsinki
Annalisa Sannino is Academy Research Fellow at the Center for Research on Activity, Development and Learning (CRADLE), University of Helsinki. Her research is primarily focused on understanding the emergence of transformative agency as a dialectical process of mastering historical contradictions and related conflicts of motives. Her work demonstrates how transformative agency can be discursively identified, supported and enhanced with formative interventions is communities, educational and work activities.
Yrjö Engeström, University of Helsinki
Yrjö Engeström is Professor of Adult Education and Director of the Center for Research on Activity, Development and Learning CRADLE at University of Helsinki. He is known for his work on cultural-historical activity theory and the theory of expansive learning. In his research, he uses the methodology of formative interventions, particularly the Change Laboratory, to facilitate expansive learning in organizations, communities and social movements
