ALBUQUERQUE, Alana Soares; PALAZUELOS, Felix Rebolledo  and  TREVIZANI, Tiago Marcelo. Image and Fiction in Knowledge-Creation in Social Psychology. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.2, pp. 88-105. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article discusses the concepts of image and fiction within the scope of knowledge-production in Social Psychology. The notion of image is usually associated with the Platonic tradition which links imagistic production to the field of representation and understands images as copies of a supposed original model. This conception establishes a comparative procedure which discerns between copies and models, giving rise to classifications that distinguish between the true and the false. The text, in line with the thinking of Gilles Deleuzeand other authors, problematises the idea of image as both representation and as simulacrum by way of the intrinsic process of fictionalization operative at its core. In view of this possible epistemological approach, genealogy and cartography are invoked as methodological propositions that not only use fiction in the production of knowledge, but which participate in a certain fictionalization of reality, giving visibility to what Deleuze calls fabulation and the power of the false.

Keywords : Image; Fiction; Fabulation; Social Psychology; Epistemology.
