AbstractThis work intended to offer a contribution for the comprehension of the process involved in the readings of the history and philosophy of science literature, or about this subject in prospective physics teacher’s education. The teaching procedures and data collection were based mainly on discourse analysis notions according to Eni Orlandi publications in Brazil. The way of meaning production and the possibility of future application of the same strategy with their own students were analyzed after history and philosophy of science texts readings. The results points to positive displacements in the knowledge and in the imaginary of those students about the history and the philosophy of science potentials, as has been verified by the great variety of answers in the open question related to this subject. The diversity itself justifies the need for working with the position of the students and not only with physics and history and philosophy of science subjects in the physics teacher’s education.
