The present study is a consideration about some of the Psychology fundaments. As it is a basic concept to human understanding of the subject and object relationship, it approaches, from the human historical-social view, the formation of the subjectivity concept in the thinking history. It is studied, in a preliminary way, how Modern Science was originated and the emphasis given to Natural Science. It also focuses on the criticism of Human Science in relation to Natural Science and how the first psychology formulations as a science are established. The objective of the present study is to point out the possibility of, through the studies of epistemological dimensions of psychology, reaching the ethic dimension of theories and practices, in order to evaluate which psychology provides the language to the human being.
