Social psychology. What for?

Dr. Juan Soto-Ramírez ( Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Unidad Iztapalapa (Ciudad de México, México)


Doing research involves a minimum set of responsibilities. One of them is to ask why do research? Today researchers and students do not ask about it. They assume they have to do research as mandatory. Research becomes a means and not an end. This paper is an overview of social psychology in Mexico (some statistical data is provided). It shows three aspects of how social psychology is addressed and some critical reflections that could be useful for those engaged in research in social psychology.

Key words: research, evaluation, problem, analysis, distinction.
