Karina Moutinho Luciane De Conti About the authors

The study of the artistic production is an issue which has interested psychology for a long time. Vygotsky´s work is an important reference to reflect upon esthetics behavior derived from object and social psychology. Considering his relevant contributions, this article has the following objectives: 1) present the most important discussions related to psychology and esthetics in the beginning of the 20th century based on Lev Vygotsky and his “ art psychology”, highlighting the theoretic-methodological proposal suggested by the author to the artistic productions of his time; 2) discuss the contributions of this proposition to narrativist perspective, reinforcing Vygotsky’s ideas to empower this area dedicated to the human approach which goes beyond the logical-abstract thoughts.
