SILES GONZALEZ, José. The practical utility of Epistemology in the clarification of the theoretical and methodological relevance in the nursing discipline. Index Enferm [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.1-2, pp.86-92. ISSN 1699-5988.

It has used methodologically critical reflection of the forms of construction of nursing knowledge and analyzed the different classifications of the same made by various authors: patterns, levels and dimensions. It has also estimated the impact of holistic approaches, practical knowledge and reflection in action on the difficulties in planning and systematization of knowledge and its impact on the traditional theoretical and practical bridge. The absence of epistemological reflection has adverse effects such as growth of science invertebrate resulting in their marginalization or invisibility in scientific taxonomies (absent or subsumed by other disciplines) and absence of theoretical, methodological and technical relevance focusing on increasing theoretical and practical dilemma.
