Ciência e imaginário: a fotografia como heurística

The epistemological rupture that defined the divide between science and common sense, necessary for the advance of the former, has also established a scientific iconoclasm. Through a revision of the Philosophy of Science and imaginary studies, convergence and dissention, arguments between image and science are sought out in this paper. While using photography as a prototype, this paper argues it can be a heuristic device that integrates creative imagination into the scientific procedure, in order to philosophically embrace the advances in natural sciences.
