SANDOVAL, Juan; HATIBOVIC, Fuad  and  CARDENAS, Manuel. Political Psychology as a moment of Social Psychology in Chile: conceptual and thematic shifts. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.25, pp.443-463. ISSN 1519-549X.

This article seeks to understand political psychology as a moment of social psychology which is articulated differently along the dimensions of "policy and politics" and the historical changes of society and theoretical changes in the discipline. This perspective allows us to observe to what extent psychosocial research has not been included in the traditional definition of political psychology, even though it may be referred to political or social phenomena. Based on this approach the article provides an overview of currently psychosocial research topics in Chile as well as the identification of thematic shifts occurred within each reviewed thematic core.

Keywords : Social psychology; Political psychology; Politics; Political; Chile.
