SCHWEITZER, Lucas; GONCALVES, Júlia; TOLFO, Suzana da Rosa  e  SILVA, Narbal. Epistemological bases for senses and meanings of work in brazilian studies. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp. 103-116. ISSN 1984-6657.

The profound changes in the context of work and its sociological and psychological centrality indicate the relevance of understanding the senses and meanings attributed to it. The objective of this study is to analyze the epistemological foundations that sustain Brazilian scientific production in empirical studies that deal with the phenomenon. An integrative review was done with 25 publications indexed on the PePSIC and SciELO databases. It is noteworthy that the scientific production is in full development, with a prevalence of studies using the existentialist and socio-historical approaches, as well as the increasing use of the psychodynamic of work approach, in collaboration with the others. Epistemological perspectives are, mainly, located in two subjective quadrants, and the subjectivity axis of Work and Organizational Psychology.The diversity of approaches to the phenomenon underscores the importance of greater theoretical understanding, avoiding inconsistencies in the construction of research, as well as expanding the scope of the study with the inclusion of international analysis.
