PINHEIRO, Ricardo Lana  and  SILVA, Ana Paula Soares da. Appropriation of space and cultural-historical psychology: reflections and notes for possible approaches. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.3, pp. 259-273. ISSN 1809-5267.

Based on reflections produced in a doctoral research that aimed to understand the teacher's constitution in rural contexts, this article proposes an initial approaches of the concepts of appropriation of space and of the cultural-historical perspective of Vygotsky. It is argued that the Marxian basis of both perspectives allows a dialogue that can foster mutual developments. Despite this basis, the contemporary elaborations of the concept of appropriation of space in Psychology do no profit from its contributions. It is argued that if, on the one hand, the Vygotskyan perspective allows a better incorporation of the phenomenal relation of the subject's emotional experience and developmental aspects to the concept of appropriation of space, the concept of space enforces a detail and a specification of what is generically defined as environment. The article thus argues in favor of the necessary incorporation of the spatial dimension when the constitution of the subject is addressed.

Keywords : Cultural-historical psychology; Appropriation of space; Constitution of the subject.
