Genetic Psychology

Therefore, genetic psychology is a study focado in the origins, in gnese of the psychic processes. As Galvo (2004), Wallon considers the integrated study of the development? affectivity, motricidade, intelligence -, as functional fields between which if it distributes the infantile activity. The man is a being ‘ ‘ genetically social’ ‘. He is psicognese of the complete person. Through the affirmation of Piaget we observe that the affectivity is worked in the context where emphasizes that this deals with the intellectual development is considered with having two components: the cognitivo and the affective one. Although nor always either focused for psychologists educators, the affective development if of parallel to the cognitivo and has a deep influence on the intellectual development.

As Piaget the affective aspect by itself cannot modify the cognitivas structures, but it can influence that structures to modify. Therefore, if the affective development if of parallel to the cognitivo development, the mental characteristics of each one of the phases of the development will be determinative for the construction of the affectivity. When we examine the reasoning of the children on moral questions, one of the aspects of the affective life, we perceive that the moral concepts are constructed in the same way that the cognitivos concepts. The construction mechanisms are the same ones. The children assimilate the experiences to the affective projects in a similar way that they assimilate the experiences to the cognitivas structures. Vygotsky says that the process of affectivity if of the one for the fact of the integration and analysis dialectic, pautado in the cognitivos and affective aspects of the psychological functioning, granting to the person human being as one to be that it thinks, deduces and abstracts, but also somebody that feels, if moves, desires, imagines and if it sensetizes.
