This article proposes a theoretical-conceptuai corpus for the study of differ-ent family organizations. Some central approaches on the theme of family by scholars such as Cicchelli and Cicchelli (1999), Moreno (1995), De Jong (2001), Bawin-Legros (1996) and Quiroz(2000), among others, are presented. This theoretical proposal is located in a subjectivist epistemological perspective; the hermeneutics of validation are the theoretical perspective that permits capturing the meanings and significance that a person or group attaches to their expressions through the investigation of texts, letters and diaries. The study introduces the idea that the "world of life" creates the possibility of thinking in different episte-mes caused by distinct forms of social coexistence even in the same spaces and times. Family organizations are multiple and pluralistic, not uniform organizations imposed by the hegemonic discourse of modern western society. Finally, this paper concludes that the idealistic model of the triangular concept of family (father, mother and children) is an ideological fiction, given that family organizations are in permanent transformation and they construct what is cognitive, symbolic and affective within the family social group, which is the provisional result of a chain of personal choices made by each of its members.

The conceptual distinction examined in particular is that between...

Both of these questions were addressed extensively by the theorists of reading and by the deconstructionists and their critics. It seems however that some of the political aspects of the academic...

    The view that special science properties are multiply realizable has been attacked in recent years by Shapiro, Bechtel and Mundale, Polger, and others. Focusing on psychological and neuroscientific properties, I argue that these attacks are unsuccessful. By drawing on interspecies physiological...

    Alpha-band activity (8-13 Hz) is not only suppressed by sensory stimulation and movements, but also modulated by attention, working memory and mental tasks, and could be sensitive to higher motor control functions. The aim of the present study was to examine alpha oscillatory activity during the...
