RODRIGUEZ SALAZAR, Tania. Discusiones teórico-metodológicas sobre el carácter contextual de las representaciones sociales. Sinéctica [online]. 2011, n.36, pp. 52-62. ISSN 1665-109X.
Following a dynamical vision of culture and social actor, open to cognitive heterogeneity and styles of life of modern society, this paper shows a theoretical dissertation about contextual determination of social representations (SR). My argument is that social representations have a contextual behavior because they are dynamics, changeables and they are dependent of discriminator's uses based on social interaction's contexts where people participate. This discussion its justified in the exposition of news hypotheses of the relation between central and peripherical components in its signification, and about the hypothesis of the silence zone (zone muette) of the SR. Also, for remark the importance of context in SR, I show some results of my own descriptive research about the social representations of love in urban young people that raised in two contexts: intimate communication (love's letters) and group's communication (discussion's groups).
