MEDRADO, Benedito; MELLO, Ricardo Pimentel  and  SAMPAIO, Juliana Vieira. "Hormones in action": articulating concepts of the actor-network theory. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.3, pp.43-52. ISSN 2238-152X.

The main objective of this paper is to produce reflections on hormones, from theoretical and methodological approximations with the productions of authors aligned to the Theory-Actor Network (TAR). We will initially present briefly the assumptions of the Actor-Network Theory and how its questions about subjective binary X objective, human non-human X can contribute to research in Psychology. In a sequel, we will look at the uses of ART in research on the role of hormones in a heterogeneous network, and how these nonhumans became central elements in the sutentation of male / female binarism. We conclude that the articulation of concepts and postulates of ART make it possible to produce studies in Psychology that broaden their focus and involve other actors that are not human.

Keywords : Methodology; Actor-Network Theory; Hormones.
