VARGAS-MADRAZO, Enrique. From transdisciplinarity towards self-knowledge and community dialogue of knowledges: simplicity at the crisis. Polis [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.42, pp.515-536. ISSN 0718-6568.

From my life experience, contextualized by the crisis, not only of modernity, but of the contradiction between the Latin American soul and the imposition from globalization of a social mechanic efficiency, I aboard how customs in intellectual thought are created by Latin American scholars. In this context I analyze on civilizing-planetary crisis, identifying positivism-rationalism as one of its nodal stones. Transdisciplinarity and complex thought are addressed as a valuable and fertile response to the crisis of the modern-academic knowledge system, proposing at the same time, the need to not dwell on these systems of thought as a life guard of modernity. Based on this, I ask myself if we are still unable to realize the dimensions of the inviability of a rationality that ignores the organic-holistic nature of our thinking. I also make evident our inability to effectively and affectively engage in participatory forms of knowledge, as well as on a dialogue on knowledges, and propose some key principles to re-build a sustainable academic practice.

Palabras clave : interculturality; intersubjectivity; participatory knowledge; ethics of knowledge.
