PAULA, Claudio Paixão Anastácio de. Uma epistemologia genética dos ecossistemas de desinformação? Problema interdisciplinar / resposta transdisciplinar. Palabra clave [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.2, pp.122-122. ISSN 1853-9912.

This essay suggests the possible bio-psycho-historical-social bases for addressing the informational field with a view to combating disinformation from the understanding of the mental ecology that sustains it. A conceptual bridge between the conceptions of schème (mental scheme, in English) in Piaget and Gilbert Durand is proposed, evaluating the adequacy of its incorporation to a critical epistemology of the field and, to the creation of a integrative approach to theories dedicated to understanding the information concept. The mental ecology of disinformation is characterized, seeking to understand the support of dissemination and belief in false information from its approach through a transposition of the evolutionary models of transferring cultural information proposed by memetics to the information field. Finally, a parallel is proposed between: 1) the use of the term schèma (in approximate translation into English; diagram represented, diagram) and the theory of schematization by the Schematist School of Information Science and 2) a possible use of the concept of schème and a theory of schemetization to support the need for building a base for redefining the information field. It is argued that this redefinition is motiveted by the hypermodern condition and it is considered that, from the disciplinary opening for theoretical dialogues between the social, cognitive, technological, political and economic views involved in the infocommunication problems, it is possible to define a propositional informational territory aimed for the solution of issues such as the urgency of a media literacy conscious of the importance of consider online communication in a critical perspective.

Keywords : Disinformation; Schème and schemetization; Transdisciplinarity; Schematist School of Information Science; Memetics.
