The Social Community Psychology appeared in Latin America in the second half of XX century, associated to the experiences of the psychologists who searched to answer, from their professional job, the necessities of the excluded majorities, in a continent wounded by the ferocious growing of neoliberalism. Different theories nourish it. Its paradigm is still in process of construction. The objective of this work is to make a epistemological reflection about the Community Psychology’s subject, analizing the convergency and the complementarity between different theorical lines that enrich it: a. The genetic epistemology and the complexity perspective. b. The systemic-relational theory. c. Community Latinoamerican Psychology. These theoric developments have paradicmatic suppositions in common refereding to ontological, epistemological and methodological questions. In the emergent paradigm of the Community Latinoametican Psychology joins the ethic-political dimension like central component of a Psychology emerging from the commitment with a transforming praxis.
