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 1806-3446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722007000100013.
This paper is an approach to some bodys 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.
