Utopia e Ciência contemporânea: novo paradigma?
AbstractThis paper argues that one could move forward a new science paradigm, considering that the post-modern science paradigm has actually been a transitory stage in the evolution of science perceptions from a science essentially based on a dilemmatic thinking to what is here called the contemporary science. The argument advanced here is that there is an emergent paradigm of science that, in its core, results from the introduction of another complex concept – utopia. This article will explore how this is possible and will also identify other elements that coexist with each other or overlap within this paradigm. The intention here is to tease out three “archetypes” that will assist and promote analysis and discussion of the conceptual and practical development of science in relation to each individual and in a public sphere.
