MONTEIRO, Silas Borges. Otobiografia como escuta das vivências presentes nos escritos. Educ. Pesqui. [online]. 2007, vol.33, n.03, pp.471-484. ISSN 1517-9702.

This text is part of the theoretical foundation of my doctoral thesis entitled When Pedagogy forms teachers: an otobiographical investigation, presented to the Faculty of Education of the University of São Paulo. The purpose of the present article is to explain the meaning of otobiography, the theoretical approach that gave support to the research method. This methodological concept, based on the work of Jacques Derrida, seeks to reveal the meaning of experiences, which results from the kind of listening suggested by Nietzsche. These experiences take place in the written production. Thus, the otobiography questions the dynamis of the text, designating it as the force and the virtual and mobile power that give life to the writings. Through the otobiographical investigation one is concerned to give new meaning to the biographical and its signature - the autobiographical. Derrida helps us here to think the close ties between the experiences and the textual production, supported by the reading he makes of Nietzsche. He understands that only artificially it is possible to separate a text from its author's life. With this method it is possible - and this was the objective of our doctoral work - to listen to the experiences of teachers in formation through their texts. The researcher here puts himself as listener of the experiences of formation; after all, they are what reveal to us the values and knowledges developed in a lifetime. The text is structured in the following way: after establishing the question that drives this work, the concept of otobiography is explained based on the book by the same name by Derrida and on Nietzsche's texts. We try to show what is under focus in an otobiographical study, namely, listening to experiences. For that, one must resume the research's founding question: what does the author want when he/she writes his/her text? The labyrinthine path rutted by this method pursues the experiences present in the writings.
