This article proposes a discussion about the relations between Psychology and Phenomenology, taking both disciplines, from his formal and conceptual proximity. It begins by defining phenomenology like an epistemology, a method, a philosophy and a science. The article is developed in four points, presented like pro-vocations : a) That all psychology is and must be phenomenological; b) That's phenomenology, in his radical way, it will be - necessarily - an ethics of intersubjectivity and a philosophy of existence; c) That the phenomenological thinking, in Brazil, was built by other ways that the husserlian philosophy, and that causes misunderstandings in discussions about phenomenology in Brazil, and; d) That Husserl may be considered a psychologist. The article pretends to point that the connections between Psychology and Phenomenology are more close than pointed by traditional literature.
