Range deficit in narratives of contemporaneity

  • Cremilda Medina Universidade de São Paulo
Keywords: narratives of contemporaneity, journalism, complexity, epistemological theory and practice, intuitive sensibility, complex reason


The article analyses narratives of contemporaneity, on the report style, and combine journalistic practices with scientific discourse of complexity. From inter and transdisciplinary interchange, it presents the epistemological challenges experienced in the social mediation of communication. Thus, this text constantly slides between the contemporary Brazilian media narratives about emergent subjects and the theoretical basis developed in their work. Indicating the empirical dynamics and the crisis of theoretical paradigms, the article presents, further, a diagnosis of the complexity deficit in interpretative practices of the collective experience.
