The present paper aims to offer some theoretical insights into the understanding of how the cultures, policies and practices of educational inclusion of disabled people in the Brazilian national context is impacted by national and international policies, but also how far beyond they are affected by other aspects when one takes a broader perspective of analysis, here named as omnilectical. Some international and national policies are taken as starting point to develop the arguments, but the analysis itself shows inevitably that there is far more to be considered. In fact, it is argued that such aspects may be endless, and as such, complex to control. Yet, by adopting an omnilectical view it is believed that control may not always express quality when it comes to carrying out deeper analyses. Perhaps what is needed is some courage to engage in the exercise of breaking through some given-for-granted “traditional” ways of thinking in an attempt to create an epistemology that may open some room for the multidimensional variables at stake in today’s realities so that they can be taken into account as part and focus of the analysis.

Keywords: Omnilectical perspective, inclusion policies, disability inclusion in Brazil.
