Abstract

ARAIZA, Alejandra  and  GISBERT, Gustavo. Conceptual transformations of the body in social psychology. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.1, pp. 111-117. ISSN 0102-3772.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722007000100013.

This paper is an approach to some body’s transformations rooted on psychology theories, particularly social psychology and social construccionism. Our goal is to focus on the relationship between social transformations, scientific knowledge changes and technological regimes of knowledge and power (dispositifs) on ways to understand human body. We try to regard the body not as a static phenomenon but as a becoming.

Keywords : body; scientific knowledge; social psychology; subject.
