MOLON, Susana Inês. Some episthemological and ethical questions in psychology: avaliation under discussion. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.16, n.1, pp. 108-123. ISSN 1807-0310. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822004000100009.
This study reflects upon some episthemological and ethical dilemma we find in the psychological knowledge production facing the hegemonic rationality that establishes a model of production, application and evaluation of knowledge to education and to Post-Graduation programmes, above all in Psychology. In order to understand the present condition of Psychology, we revisited its past, searching for indication of its struggle and resistence history, searching marks of permanence and ruptures, so we could think prospectively about our condition and our becoming. In the effort to systematize some points of the discussion, we initially approach the specificities of Psychology knowledge production; then, we emphasize the hegemonic rationality crisis and the emergence of a new pradigm in science, and we conclude with the discussion on evaluation.
