Abstract

The aim of the present text is, through a brief presentation of the Latin-American testimony, understand its ramifications and discussions which presently insert it in the articulated-testimony concept. This concept might be considered just as an epistemology, which I define as non-contemplative, as a working methodology in the field of the social sciences, which takes in consideration the responsability, a specific politics and situated knowledges as working tools in the construction of a compromised scientific knowledge with the social transformation. This way, we’ll go from focusing on a wider analysis of the theoretical configurations of the Latin American Testimony to concentrating on the implications of the proposition of the “articulated testimony” as a coalition politics capable of enlarging and democratizing the production of knowledge.
