To prepare the researcher it is necessary the tourismologist be able to identify relationships between the epistemologies presuppositions adopted and the investigation`s object as well as its methodological choices. At the same time, it is allowed to understand how his/her intuition as the scientific text`s enunciator happens together with the social representations built and the ones that are build in the scientific enunciation as well as the rhetorical games that are put inside the sociallinguistic science contract.
