BOECHAT, Filipe Milagres  and  PORTUGAL, Francisco Teixeira. Postconstructionism and new experimentalism in Social Psychology. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.3, pp. 930-945. ISSN 1808-4281.

Analyzing part of social psychological literature from 1970 to nowadays, we examine and describe the two main movements (Social Constructionism and Social Neuroscience) which, in the last four decades, have been  considerably modifying  the  profile  of  this  science, in order to present, briefly, the current state of Social Psychology and discuss some new epistemological problems that this science lives today - for example, the risk of linguistical reductionism by social constructionism and the risk of physicalist reductionism by social neuroscience.

Keywords : Social constructionism; Social neuroscience; Social psychology; Post-constructionism; Neo-experimentalism.
