MetadataShow full item record
The study of conscious and unconscious dimensions of the human psyche, marks the own origins of psychology. Prevalent approaches, now about one dimension, now about other, led to different and antagonistic interpretations that were, over time, establishing itself in the various headquarters, or approaches, the psychological thought. According to Vygotsky and followres the dichotomous paths trodden by psychology determined logical and methodological changes with a view to expanding the principles for structuring own psychological science. With this commitment, they are led towards the systematization of cultural-historical theory, basing it in the materialist-dialectical methodological principles. In this way, they gave the human psyche a unitary approach, in which the conscious and unconscious dimensions result perceived as polar opposites, nevertheless interior to each other. In light of this theoretical framework, this study aims to present the historical and dialectical conception of conscious / unconscious dynamics, in order to contribute to the systemic analysis of psychic phenomena. It is concluded from this study: the content of consciousness is given by the meaning of the word-the verbal results not hidden and beyond the conscious control; the meaning of the word is formed and becomes the active subject-object; the human psyche is not limited to your conscious side, so it is permissible to consider that the unconscious is potentially conscious and vice versa.
