How to ditch the method class in three steps. Or de-methodologizing decolonial epistemologies

Diego Posada Gómez

Resumen


Descartes’ Discourse on Method (which continues to be taught from basic education on as the universal basis of scientific thought), not only imposes a standardized procedure for the analysis of objects of study (dividing it and arbitrarily ordering it from what is considered most simple to most complex, etc.), but also and above all builds a subject with a particular subjectivity, which considers itself and its gaze as neutral, objective, and even superior to ordinary people who are contaminated by their opinions and experiences. This paper studies forms of making evident, assuming, subverting and escaping the invisible ("objective") subjectivity that Cartesian scientific thought produces.
