ACEVEDO, Mariela Hemilse. Contributions of Alfred Schutz's social theory to think politics and collective action. Trab. soc. [online]. 2011, n.17, pp. 83-94. ISSN 1514-6871.
Starting from the question about which aspects of the social phenomenology of Alfred Schutz may be relevant to thinking about politics and collective action, interest in these pages will be on exposing the proposals of Schutz's place of systems of relevance and symbolic representations in the relationship between man and the world in social and political order, and noted the contributions of these approaches to the reflection on the collective action and politics. For this, it briefly describes some formulations of the theory schutzeana knowledge of the world, his theory of the references apresentacionales and symbolization, as well as references to the role of the structures of significance in the interpretation of the world and action, and it examines how these developments of the theory of Schutz are taken up by Ilja Srubar and Daniel Cefaï to think politics.
