GABRIELA ESPINOSA MORENO, Elizabeth and ARELLANO HERNANDEZ, Antonio. Hacia una epistemología de la comunicología: la teoría de la comunicación en Serres y en Martín-Barbero. Convergencia [online]. 2010, vol.17, n.52, pp. 289-318. ISSN 1405-1435.
Many works related to the epistemology of communicology, refer rather to the degree of scientificity of this discipline than to the study of the conceptual and methodological elaboration of the theories of communication. In this work we focus on the analysis of the epistemological elaborations that support the communicological perspectives of Jesús Martín Barbero and Michel Serres, in order to advance towards a reconstruction of the epistemology of communicology. In order to do that, we present as an introduction, the formation of both authors. Then, we start from the epistemology of the contemporary world to locate the authors' communicational analyses. In a third moment, we analyze the authors' methodological conceptions in the translation and mediations. Then, we talk about the role of technicity and the notion of network in communication. At the end, we present the epistemological conclusions of this comparative exercise and the lessons that could be used to advance in an epistemology of communicology.
