OLIVEIRA, Vera Barros de. The representation of time lived in symbolic play. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.100, pp. 26-36. ISSN 1415-711X.

This text addresses the great versatility of symbolic, verbal, imagery or ludic manifestations, in their various interactions, in the human construction of personal and social identity. It addresses the concept of man inserted in his life story, who experiences the possibility of making present, through his symbolic representations, his experiences of the past, as well as his vision of the future. It briefly follows the course of history, which generates the expansion of levels of reflection and consciousness, enabling, in turn, new conquests, appropriations and demarcations of properties and spaces, as well as the consciousness of the need for exchange of experiences. It focuses on the fundamental role of memory in the construction of this process in its historical relationship between the continuity in the present of the time lived, with the changes that occur in it. It highlights the importance of narrative, in its historical and fantastic versions. Finally, it presents an analysis of the symbolic activities played by three-year-old children, which already reveals their ability to record lived situations, as well as the richness of their symbolic representation, which allows them, when recording what they have lived and being able to represent it playing, to revive in their own way, with a number of details, significant situations and, therefore, to create favorable conditions for their understanding and elaboration of their emotions and feelings experienced.

Palavras-chave : symbolic play; memory; narrative; life's history; experience report.
