GRASSI, Valentina. La investigación en el Centro de Estudios sobre lo Actual y lo Cotidiano. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.44, pp.105-123. ISSN 2448-5799.

In this paper we present theoretical and methodological, epistemology elements, relevant to the research works for doctorate theses performed at the Centre d'Etude sur l'Actuel et le Quotidien (CEAQ) of the University La Sorbonne, Paris V. The core of the work highlights the methodology used in the Centre, denominated as fractal methodology, which is characterized for being a "weak" method, with the possibility of adapting itself to social changes and to the complexity of the phenomena. This strategy of method avoids the linearity and sequence and prefers to construct using organized, fractal modules. The phenomenological posture according to which the scientificity of a study is rooted in its real inscription in the experience of the quotidian (or methodological situationism), is another of the important elements present in the Cenire investigations. Finally, it is concluded that the Centre researches are distinguished by their comprehensive and interpretative approaches the symbolic dimension of experience estimates.

Keywords : Centre of Studies of the Current and Quotidian (CEAQ); imaginary; quotidian life.
