The biography through a communicational perspective

  • Igor Sacramento UFRJ
Keywords: Communication, biography, epistemology


This paper develops the notion of communicational biography as a possible methodology for the analysis of individual trajectories. This approach considers communication as a set of processes that link the self and the other. I assume that the epistemological problem of communication lies in the fact that to be means to be for another, through another, to himself or herself.
