This article analyzes the way in which academic Psychology conceives its method and object of study in the new plans of degree. The ideological fundamentals of these plans are studied. Their basic lines are: an explanatory non theoretical approach supported by the simplification of the matters of the cause; the exclusion of subjective dimension; the priority of statistical analysis and the omnipresence of the term health. In short, it is paradoxicalally a direction that avoids more and more the field of the psychic. This conception is linked with some features of the prevailing social speech, where the ideal of evaluation and transparency are accompanied by a negation of the individual. Finally the serious clinical consequences of this trend are considered. Some assessments about how it cannot stop being a psychological learning opened to the clinic of the subject are suggested.
