FARINAS LEON, Gloria  and  GARCIA NIUBO, David. The tasks of contemporary psychology between social sciences (an approach from the complexity standpoint). Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2006, vol.8, n.1, pp. 107-118. ISSN 1516-3687.

The present paper deals with theoretical and methodological problems to organize transdiciplinary construction in social sciences. This is pointed out from an integrative perspective about subject in its social situation of development, a vygotskian principle that lays the foundation of such dialectical vision. Psychology plays an important role in that production, as an integrative science (natural-social). These problems are analyzed not only from contemporary epistemological requirements of science development, but also from practical needs of cultural and social progress. Complexity standpoint offers not less important tools for mentioned aims.

Keywords : Complexity; Transdisciplinarity; Social sciences.
