OLIVEIRA, Elisa Smile Teixeira de; ROSA, Amanda Acco  e  FREITAS, Joanneliese de Lucas. Bibliographic review of academic publications about children in the phenomenological perspective. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.3, pp. 362-371. ISSN 1809-6867.

Psychology has been studying childhood from an adult viewpoint as a stage of human development. The phenomenological perspective contributes significantly in the childhood phenomenon study doing it from the child's perspective, rather than the developmental one. The present work constitutes a systematic review of literature about the phenomenological studies of children and childhood. Data was collected through the following databases: PePSIC, SciELO, Portal CAPES and BVS Salud Bireme. Twenty articles were analyzed, which were published between 2005 and 2015. The areas of Psychology and Philosophy had the largest volume of papers. Most papers were theoretical, pointing to a need for more empirical studies, especially from the child's viewpoint. The most cited author was Merleau-Ponty, followed by Heidegger and Husserl. Among several comprehensions of childhood found the majority were existentialists, dissenting from the developmental perspective about the infancy.
