SILVA JUNIOR, Nelson da and FERRAZ, Flávio Carvalho. The psychodiagnosis between the incompatibilities of its instruments and the promises of a psychopathological methodology. Psicol. USP [online]. 2001, vol.12, n.1, pp.179-202. ISSN 0103-6564. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65642001000100009.
Examining the different conceptions of "normality" which are supposed by the commonest instruments of the psychodiagnosis, the authors point out to some of its structural contradictions. They suggest the psychopathological methodology as its possible epistemological ground.
