Résumé
The goal of this document is to analyze the rationale of family farmers in decision-making processes when choosing a set of social technologies for implementation in their properties, within a context of difficult access to water and food production in the Alagoas semiarid region. Thus, identification of the logical framework adopted by these farmers was attempted, based on a case study of the project for Systematization and Reapplication of Social Technologies, which proposed implementation of 14 different types of social technologies from different areas of the Semiarid for a group of 20 family farmers in the municipality of Piranhas, Alagoas. After accepting the proposal for introduction of social technologies in their properties, farmers were given the opportunity to choose among 14 technologies. Questions leading to the rationale behind these choices were then analyzed, investigating the dynamics between availability/scarcity of resources such as time, money, natural resources and work force, in addition to whether availability was decisive in the choice of technologies to be implemented. It became evident that the objectives guiding adoption of one or another technology in properties were more closely related to living in harmony with the Semiarid than income generation. It also became clear that availability or lack thereof of resources was crucial in decision-making processes, especially in aspects such as a lack of water for farming, scarcity of labor, access to relationship and trust networks and degree of difficulty in performing certain tasks

Mots Clés : social technologies, living in harmony with the Semiarid, agriculture, rationale. tecnologias sociais, convivência com o semiárido, agricultura familiar, racionalidade camponesa.
