NOGUEIRA, Susana Engelhard  and  MOURA, Maria Lucia Seidl de. Intersubjectivity: theoretical approaches and implications for early child development. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2007, vol.17, n.2, pp. 128-132. ISSN 0104-1282.

The intersubjectivity concept has been approached according to different interpretations in Psychology. The aim of this article is to present some theoretical bases pertaining to this concept, pointing out how its use has been treated by early child development studies in the last decades. We discuss and compare different theoretical perspectives that approach the function of intersubjectivity and of social interaction in child development. These perspectives may contribute to a conception of intersubjectivity as an inherent aspect in basic processes that involve reciprocity, such as early communication, social interaction, and affectivity.

Keywords : Intersubjectivity; Early child development.
