BUENO, Rovana Kinas; VIEIRA, Mauro Luís; CREPALDI, Maria Aparecida  and  SCHNEIDER, Daniela Ribeiro. Epistemological considerations of bioecological perspective on human development about father involvement. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.3, pp. 599-620. ISSN 1677-1168.

Father involvement can be described in terms of interaction, availability and responsibly. However, to study father involvement, it is important to understand the context in which the father is inserted. One theory that aids in this understanding is the bioecological theory of human development. In this article, we aim to perform some theoretical and epistemological considerations of this theoretical perspective considering the fathers involvement as an object of study. This theory includes individual aspects of the father, the father-child relationship, the influence of time on the development of both, as well as aspects of the context. Moreover, this theory includes the reality from the dialogism between objective and subjective, considering man as a being interrelation, and conceives different modes of knowledge production about father involvement from the assumptions of complexity, instability and intersubjectivity. It appears that explored aspects contribute to deepening of understanding through the fathers involvement.

Keywords : Fatherhood; Bioecology; Epistemology.
