The study proposes reflections about care practices and health education. These practices, in many respects, are permeated by a dualistic base, which weakens the educational power and effectiveness in health promotion. There is the hypothesis that the tympanizing gesture proposed by Jacques Derrida, offers a possibility of a methodological approach to the subject, exercise that is done through an Antonin Artaud’s letter, considering his biography and his health and illness experiences. Tympanizing includes three procedures: groping the wreckage; disseminating meanings and invention of supplements chains. This method can open different meanings for knowledge and practices of attention and health education.
