BETANCOURT MARTINEZ, Fernando. Intersubjectivity, cognition and system: epistemological approaches to freudian psychoanalysis and Historical discipline. Hist. graf [online]. 2013, n.40, pp.193-225. ISSN 1405-0927.

This article seeks to analyze Freudian psychoanalysis from its generalframework. It considers that the epistemological bases formulated by Freud shed light on theoretical aspects of the historical discipline which prove to be decisive in defining its nature and cognitive limits. The main thesis posits that the relation between psychoanalysis and historiography proposes the conditions under which the complex connections of theoretical vocabulary and practical application aspects express a change in the perspective of epistemological analysis in a way that now supposes reflexive description of the sciences as an exercise of the operative rationalities. It is from this change that its importance is highlighted for both disciplines, their connections with the area of social research and for modern societies' forms of self-description.

Keywords : Theory of history; psychoanalysis; social sciences; Freud; Historiography; Epistemology.
