MEDINA, J.L.; CLERIES, X.  and  NOLLA, M.. Unlearning: Proposal for critic health professionals. Educ. méd. [online]. 2007, vol.10, n.4, pp.15-22. ISSN 1575-1813.

Unlearning as a reflexive method of critical questioning of reality helps us examine the theoretical structures that each individual has mastered, more often than not in an "acritical" manner, during his or her professional and formative trajectory. This critical examination of the habitual ways of thinking and behaving in today's world is not intended, however, to serve as a guide for this transition process towards more authentic and fundamental forms of awareness. On the contrary, what we are looking for is to perform a continuous questioning exercise of what is evident and to accept the limits of our thinking patterns and the uncertainties of our time.

Keywords : unlearning; critical thinking; complexity; technical rationality; the problematic of knowledge.
