MARTINEZ POSADA, Jorge Eliécer  and  MUNOZ GAVIRIA, Diego Alejandro. Theoretical-methodological approach to social imaginary and collective representations: Notes for a sociological understanding of image. univ.humanist. [online]. 2009, n.67, pp.207-221. ISSN 0120-4807.

The study of social imaginaries and collective representations from a sociological perspective involves agencying interpretative exercises of image reconstruction, whether mental or pictorial images. Thus, the theoretical path followed in this text points to the understanding of social imaginaries and collective representations, as knowledge tradition socially constructed, and social images, which become historically symbolic points of reference of social action.

Keywords : social imaginaries; collective representations; iconology; reconstruction; sociomorphology; sociocibernetics and image.
