Abstract

NEVES, Sofia  and  NOGUEIRA, Conceição. Feminist methodologies: reflexivity in social sciences research. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2005, vol.18, n.3, pp. 408-412. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722005000300015.

In recent years feminist methodologies has greatly influenced psychology and social sciences in general, bringing up to the research field new possibilities of analysis and knowledge about social dynamics. The positivist crisis, affected in a large extent by feminist critics related with objectivity and neutrality of science, legitimated the emergence of potent analytic tools, among them reflexivity. This paper explores the importance of adopting reflexivity in the research process and its influence in the construction of a more responsible science. Convergent topics between reflexivity and the principles that underlie feminist methodologies in psychology are discussed.

Keywords : Feminist methodologies; reflexivity; social sciences.
