WAHBA, Liliana Liviano  and  ULISSES, Sofia Marques Viana. Subjectivity in Analytical Psychology research: an ethical perspective. Junguiana [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.2, pp. 33-40. ISSN 2595-1297.

Research in Analytical Psychology is anchored in the subjectivity paradigm. The proposed reflection addresses the process of knowledge construction according to the epistemological perspective that considers the concomitant transformation of the researcher and the object investigated. The adopted path starts from the notion of personal equation, whereby Jung considered different types and ways of knowing that are inherent to psychological research and practice. This reflection rests upon post-Jungian authors who proposed a parallel between the production of scientific knowledge and the individuation process, acknowledging that research and knowledge production are linked to an ethical perspective that takes into consideration the researcher's subjectivity. Research in Analytical Psychology must be based on the premise of responding to the development in favor of wholeness and human dignity, with ethics as a central factor in the research process, essential to the present-day. ■
