FUENTEALBA, Carmen Gloria. No parametrical knowledge, the posibility of an alternative contribution to social science: About conmensurability and inconmensurability of cultural tensions. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19. ISSN 1514-6871.

The following article is a theoretical reflection to propose the concept of no parametric knowledge to understand and to indicate the subjects that there are in art creation contexts that could contribute to solve problems of social sciences. To apply categorical epistemic analysis to social matters it has been watched the proximity between the concepts no parametrical and incommensurability. Otherwise, incommensurability and its opposite commensurability are concepts that become from social studies and let us discuss multiculturalism and interculturality pointing the complexity of fundamental human conflicts. Thus, it is presented the tension between incommensurability and commensurability in the terms of liberalism and communitarianism. Finally, as an example and as a brief no parametrical exercise, it is considered the analysis of a work that becomes from multimedia and conceptual kind of art.

Keywords : No parametrical; Social sciences; Inconmensurability; Art creation; Context.
