Abstract

This study is part of the FAPESP Regular Research Project The pathologies of modernity and the remedies from humanities: investigation and experimentation, developed under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Dante Marcello Claramonte Gallian (process 10/50448-0), and it intends to discuss, at the confluence of research and experimentation, to what extent dehumanization can be seen as a "pathological symptom" of Modernity, when following an Anthropology of Human Perfectibility as its basis; this work also intends to discuss to what extent the experience of Humanities can be presented as a "remedy" or a humanization journey (critical Paideia) within the health scope. The opening to the humanistic dimension of knowledge relies on repertoires of Literature, Philosophy, Religion, History and the Arts as a privileged means of discussion about humanization.The study has also the General Purpose of investigating the role of Humanities as a way of effective humanization within the health scope, starting from a practical educational experience: the Laboratory of Humanities, particularly, in its aesthetic journey, based on the theoretical framework of Mikhail Bakhtin, in the dynamics between the enjoyment of literary works and the conjugated philosophical repertoire. To this end, we have carried out this research in a Qualitative methodological approach, of ethnographical nature, on the perspective of Participant Observation, for being the one which allows us to access experience, interactions and documents in the context of a distinct area.Keywords: Humanities Laboratory, Humanities and Health, Humanization in Health, Humanization as Critical Paideia, Humanizing Aesthetic Journey, Perfectibility Anthropology.
