We study the epistemological perspectives of knowledge production Administration, which seems to receive greatly influences a coloniality of thought which underlies other possibilities visions in a more critical and reflective perspective on organizational issues and their implications for the socio-cultural context, expressed both on the routes of ideas, as in the productivist logic of linear thinking and the utilitarian training courses of higher education. There have as objective to elaborate a symbolic mapping of knowledge management ideas in an attempt to identify approaches with knowledge regulation, but also approaches slopes with knowledge emancipation. It is proposed to map the epistemological perspectives of knowledge in Administration in Brazil, with the theoretical and epistemological contribution classic and contemporary authors propose the decolonization of thought, especially the proposal of Boaventura de Sousa Santos to work as opposed to this colonialism hegemonic the "southern epistemology", complemented by other epistemic referents of Santos, namely the concepts of Sociology of Absences, Sociology of Emergencies, ecology of knowledge, and translation, as well as regarding other authors of Modernity / Coloniality movement. To understand the constitution of this knowledge, it looks as empirical field, the experiences found in the International Colloquium on Epistemology and Sociology of Management Science (2011-2015). While research strategy configure the data of empirical research in a symbolic cartography, as proposed by Santos (2009a), for it allows the demonstration of "[...] analytical and theoretical virtues of a sociological approach to take for matrix reference to construction and representation of space”. There has been an update to the epistemological perspectives of knowledge in administration, in order to seek the epistemic bases that promote their constitution, as well as; compression and dialogue with other areas of knowledge and methodologies strategies. Highlighting issues such as public management, solidarity economy, rationality and specific areas of management such as finance, entrepreneurship and strategy. Check the alignment knowledge regulation, however; There are approaches to knowledge imminent emancipation to the reflections of critical thinking in management.
