FONTES, Flávio Fernandes  y  FALCAO, Jorge Tarcísio da Rocha. Philosophical and theoretical psychology as a field of academic research. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.1, pp.72-79. ISSN 1982-1247.

The need for philosophical and conceptual psychology research has been repeatedly pointed out due to the characterization of the discipline as excessively focused on method and empirical data collection. In the last few decades, a new area of research has been developed to meet these demands, the Philosophical and Theoretical Psychology. With the aim of providing an introduction to this area, we highlighted some of the main journals, graduate programs and institutions that are involved in the production of knowledge in this field. We tried to establish the scope and purposes of the Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology. We reviewed different authors who sought to establish the main activities in this field. Thus, we provide some examples of important research, and we concluded that the encouragement of this kind of inquiry is indeed relevant to Psychology.

Palabras clave : theoretical psychology; philosophical psychology; conceptual analysis.
