MENDEZ SANTOS, Isidro E. Towards a system approach to dialectical contradictions in research in education. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp.472-498. ISSN 1727-8120.

A systemic conception of the contradictions to keep in mind in the educational investigations is presented. In this general understanding the contradiction type logical - formal and of dialectical nature (external and intern) are included. Methods of the theoretical level of the knowledge (analytic - synthetic, inductive - deductive, historical - logical and the system focus) were utilized to systematize information coming from the consulted bibliography and of experiences in Ph. D. in Pedagogy tuition, registered by the author. Some basic methodological rules are offered to value the devalued contradictions when communicating the scientific results.

Keywords : educational research; formal logic; dialectical logic; logical - formal contradiction; dialectical contradiction.
