For an Epistemological Historiography: practices, categories and epistemic virtues
Description: This research project aims to investigate the distinctive features of a certain "historiographic style" that bring together authors from different national traditions, such as Georges Canguilhem and Lorraine Daston, and who, more recently, have begun to attract historians interested in the so-called "history of historiography". Based on the intellectual history of this approach, we will seek to present and discuss the theoretical and methodological possibilities opened by this "epistemological historiography", especially for investigations on Brazilian historiography.
