Different tendencies in research on egocentric speech: analysis of Brazilian productions
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research was to conduct a review of research developed in Brazil about egocentric speech, in order to identify key theoretical and methodological issues present in its study. A search was made in the CAPES Thesis databank, comprising the period from 1987 to 2012, and eight theses / dissertations were found. The results demonstrated the predominance of studies in the light of Vygotsky's cultural-historical perspective, which can be divided according to two tendencies: those studies that confirm its postulates and those that suggest other theoretical contributions, particularly from the Circle of Bakhtin. A third tendency can also be recognized which, although signaling to the work of Piaget and Vigotski, criticizes both and does not adhere to any of them, proposing a different way of conceiving this linguistic occurrence.
