  • Description: This test employs the theoretical framework of Pierre Bourdieu, central author to the description of scientific practice as a heuristic artifice to obtain a hermeneutic understanding of the meaning of collective health undergraduate studies in the context of the field of health, and trying to explain if the formation of the neo-hygienist approach can enable undergraduates in collective health to incorporate the illusio necessary (but not sufficient) to transform health in Brazil. This is an essay that discusses how social thought, through courses of humanities and social sciences, was historically introduced in the field of health. In this process, we will discuss how these courses form the common thinking of the so-called collective health and therefore start to incorporate the habitus of the professionals in the field. Finally, we will discuss how the acceptance of the initial pact by professionals with the rules of the field and of the symbolic forms of their legitimacy could occur and how the recently graduated professionals in collective health would accept the unspoken and implied rules of acting in this field. We observed that the symbolic domination of the clinic is still apparently unshaken and that the training of students in an area that should challenge this oneness of thought seems to keep intact this hegemony, despite the avowed goals of creation of this undergraduate course.
