POMBO-DE-BARROS, Carolina Fernandes  and  ARRUDA, Angela Maria Silva. Affection and social representations: contributions of a transdisciplinary dialogue. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2, pp.351-360. ISSN 0102-3772.

This text is a result of a theoretical research with two goals: to explore common points between the Emotional Development Theory by Winnicott and the Social Representations Theory by Moscovici, and to indicate the role of affection in the construction of social representations. To sustain the dialogue between the two theories, this text approaches perspectives from different authors who have looked into the processes of knowledge, perception and interaction, and who have defended the complexity of the social and cognitive phenomena as well as the need of a transdisciplinary paradigm to investigate them. It is also analyzed, in the conclusion, the presence of fear and solidarity in the results of Sandra Jovchelovitch's research on social representations and the public sphere in Brazil.

Keywords : social representation; emotional development; transdisciplinarity.
