Abstract

PRADO FILHO, Kleber  and  MARTINS, Simone. Subjectivity as the object of psychology(ies). Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.3, pp. 14-19. ISSN 1807-0310.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822007000300003.

This text intends to trace a history of where subjectivity is placed as the object for many different psychologies throughout the twentieth century. This concept originates from the field of philosophy of knowledge, migrating to psychoanalysis near the end of the nineteenth century, from where it moves to the domains of psychology, gaining a historical, social and political treatment at the end of the twentieth century, from then on, pointing to an inquiry on the process of singularization as the focus of study for contemporary psychologies.

Keywords : Subjectivity; singularity; psychology; Michel Foucault.
