FREITAS, Joanneliese de Lucas. The Concept of Structure in Gestaltpsychologie and Genetic Epistemology: Uses and implications for psychology. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.4, pp.443-449. ISSN 0102-3772.

This paper presents a brief reflection on the ways Gestaltpsychologie and the Genetic Epistemology adopted the term 'structure'. It aims to describe valuable elements to understand what 'structure' means and how the term is used in both theories. Assume this path contributes to the search for an understanding of how theories and methods are justified in their ontological and epistemological contexts. It is concluded that does not exist a conceptual unit that allows generalizing the concept of structure in the psychological field. To trace its epistemological course it is useful to understand the associations, proximities and differences between the explanatory models of structure used and the problems studied.

Palavras-chave : structure; structuralism; Gestalt psychology; Genetic Epistemology.
