Ética, Escrita e Leitura da História

Os problemas da expectativa e da confiança

Palavras-chave: escrita da história, leitura da história, ética, confiança, expectativa

Resumo

O funcionamento da verdade no texto de história não depende apenas de suas condições epistemológicas, mas também de uma relação ética entre historiador e leitor. Paul Ricoeur indicou que nessa relação se estabelece um pacto tácito de leitura, um contrato em que o historiador garante ao leitor que a narrativa apresentada é “verdadeira”. Michel de Certeau, de outro lado, trabalhou tanto sobre o funcionamento interno dessa maquinaria de produção de verdades (a operação historiográfica) quanto sobre o caráter ativo da leitura. Cruzando tais insights, proponho que devemos pensar a respeito dessa relação ética entre autor e leitor, considerada aqui nas categorias de confiança e expectativa.
