FROTA, Ana Maria Monte Coelho. Different conceptions on childhood and adolescence: the importance of historicity on their construction. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2007, vol.7, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1808-4281.

This paper aims to discuss different conceptions on childhood and adolescence. It analyses the context in which these conceptions were constructed, and how they have been presented as truly theories on the contemporaneity. We start from the principle that these conceptions have been changing in the occident, making possible to see that the transformations clarify the historical texture on which they are constructed. We show that, in contrast with the modern perspective on childhood and adolescence, the pos-modernity points to a new conception, which opens a space to a multiplicity and partiality of representations on these developmental intervals.

Palavras-chave : Childhood; Adolescence; Modernity; Pos-modernity; Human Development.
