An archeological analysys of the social psychology

This article aims to set an archaeological history of Social Psychology in Brazil based on Michel Foucault's methodological perspective. Shifting from an epistemological analysis that asks itself about the scientificity and the truth or validity of presumptions, concepts and techniques applied in field, the argument presented here questions its movements and historical trends, the confrontments and ruptures observable among the many approaches orbiting there, as well as the emergency of multiple objects which form and succeed in this domain of knowledge and procedures throughout the 20th century and in the first years of 21st century.
