MetadataShow full item record
This work presents itself as a theoretical essay dedicated to emphasizing the ontological and epistemological Soviet Psychology bases to delimit its necessary methodological properties. We accentuate the risk announced for the field of Historical-Cultural Psychology when we give in to the mistake of emptying the meanings attributed by Vigotski and by the members of his Circle to the Genetic-Experimental Method to the methodological organization in the in Psychology research field. Therefore, the aim of this work is to recover the emphasis about the dimensions of experimentation within the organization of Soviet psychology in order to unveil its impact in this regard in the Brazilian productions field, at the interface between Psychology and Education. This care prevents us from contributing to the maintenance of a theoretical and political project that we announce to be fighting. It is intended to contribute to the understanding that the experimentation activities do not oppose the dimensions of criticism within Historical-Dialectical Materialism, on the contrary, they are often required by it.
