IMHOFF, Débora; GUTIERREZ, Jael  e  BRUSSINO, Silvina. Cognitive categories on 'the political' by young people from Córdoba. Actual. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.113, pp. 87-107. ISSN 0258-6444.

This study analyzes cognitive categories that young people associate to "the political". One hundred and fifty university students from 18-30 year old completed a questionnaire based on semantic networks technique. A cluster analysis allowed to identify three main classes of meanings associated to "the political": citizenship practice in the democratic system, political system's dimensions, and use of adjectives to describe the political field. Results provide us elements to deepen about linking ways of young people with the political arena.

Palavras-chave : cognitive categories; youth; the political; socio-cognitive theory; political psychology.
