Abstract

PRADO, Marco Aurélio Máximo. Community psychology in the Americas: individualism, communitarism and the exclusion of the political. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2002, vol.15, n.1, pp. 201-210. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722002000100021.

This paper discusses the end of the political, seen as a common denominator between Community Psychology in North and Latin America. Based on political philosophy, this paper proposes a critical analysis of two positions in Community Psychology, individualism and communitarism, thereby emphasizing the importance of the political in contemporary debates of a psychology engaged in the extension of democratic values.

Keywords : Community psychology; individualism; communitarism; political.
