Resumen

TIZON, Jorge L.. Why "neuro-sciences" and why not "psycho-sciences"?: Bamby meets Godzilla in the episthemologic kingdom. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2002, n.84, pp.67-117. ISSN 0211-5735.

The autor sets out to define the concepts of paradigm, research program and scientific and technological working programs in an attempt to formulate a "post-Kuhnian" concept of science and technology. In his opinion, this concept has not merited sufficient attention in the metatheory of psycho(patho)logy, psychiatry and the mental health disciplines. The analysis focuses on the sphere of the technosciences; a sphere which has been marked from its interdisciplinary beginnings by two fundamental problems: biological reductionism and the direct influence of all types of ideological deformations. The author concludes that the theoretical and metatheoretical problems arising in psychiatry and the mental health disciplines today are influenced by these two problems; particularly so in the field of psychiatry, wich is defined as a fundamentally technological or technical discipline with scientific models and procedures. The author supports his hypotheses with several examples of theoretical, technical and pragmatic situations ocurring in the field. Finally, he investigates the "derived epistemologies" present in modern psycho(patho)logical and psychiatric theories and goes on to redefine the "15 theses" formulated in his work of 1978.

Palabras clave : Epistemology; Science; Scientific Philosophy; Scientific Theory; Paradigm; Research Program; Theories.
