Resumen

MALIK LIEVANO, Beatriz  y  BALLESTEROS VELAZQUEZ, Belén. BUILDING KNOWLEDGE FROM AN INTERCULTURAL PERSPECTIVE. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2015, n.47, pp.15-25. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812015000200003.

In this article we reflect on our own trajectory within the INTER Group of research in intercultural education, considering that the intercultural approach allows us to regard and acknowledge diversity in a positive way, and consequently, the complexity of social and educational situations. Interculturalism is thus proposed as interaction, communication and dialog, highlighting the arbitrariness of any classification imposed on people.Interculturalism is a type of knowledge construction that questions the established truth as the only way of explanation. Complexity can only be addressed through a dialogue of different types of knowledge and "know-how" giving voice to people, thus avoiding the artificial divide between object and subject in the advancement of science. Scientific knowledge becomes purposeful because it offers an opportunity of emancipation and empowerment of people and groups. From this perspective, our research is not without dilemmas and challenges, some of which are discussed in this article. We problematize the use of categories and the risk they entail, in spite of their need. And we also problematize the idea of cultural relativism, which, though a necessary tool in our research from a different logic, raises a few tensions in applied research.

Palabras clave : Intercultural approach; diversity; epistemology; complexity; knowledge dialogue; emancipation.
