SOARES, Luciana Loyola Madeira. An invitation to the beginning of a conversation about graduation in Psychology: thinking an ANT version for Developmental Psychology. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.spe, pp. 1303-1328. ISSN 1808-4281.

We present our thoughts about graduation in Psychology by a critical and historical review of the Developmental Psychology. Since the illuminist view in Modern Science entanglement with the logic of the economic liberalism supported a rationalistic and individualistic project for the human being, we intend to discuss how these formulations have contributed for an idea of human development related to the wealth of the countries. We point out that all those ideas interfered in the graduation in psychology as it gave it an apolitical face. So, we intend to raise questions about the importance of the other's presence since classroom, in order to set up an ethical attitude. We propose the Actor-Network Theory (ANT) as a way to the studies of the Human development with a political face, in which the presence of the other means much more, by connecting humans and non humans, technology, competition, feelings and creativity.

Keywords : developmental psychology; modern science; ANT.
