CASTRO, Thiago Gomes de  and  GOMES, William Barbosa. Phenomenological movement: controversies and perspectives on psychological research. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.2, pp.233-240. ISSN 0102-3772.

The repercussion of the phenomenological movement on the history of psychology can be perceived by persistent attempts to import eidetic phenomenology features in the systematic analysis of empirical events. In this sense, the concept of phenomenological reduction, described by the philosopher Edmund Husserl (1859-1938) and technically defined for psychological research, was taken as a mean to investigate the attempts of transitions between philosophy and psychology. This review includes three models of methodological transposition: empirical phenomenological psychology, experimental phenomenology and neurophenomenology. Epistemological differences are emphasized between hermeneutic and natural models. The study concludes that a deeper discussion about the influence of phenomenology on the science of psychology would be opportune and appropriate through the study of the history of this intersection.
