This work tries to show how determined theoretical-methodological frames —called paradigms, episteme, epistemological field— constitute the theoretical framework that is guided by the social practices of the subjects. On the other hand, we tested how the influence of the same we can also observe in “paideia” and in the Olympic Games as concerns social practices, as well as some risks that can happen when they are unknown or when one of them thinks they possess the truth exclusively.
