[Autom. eng. transl.] The theme of complexity, object in the eighties and nineties of a thorough and articulated attention, has acquired a status of maturity and diffusion that has decreed its consistency as a true paradigm of reference. If the emphasis on complexity has now become an organizing concept of discourses and languages within the contexts in which we act, its application in the field of research and psychological practice seems to be confronted with the stresses deriving from holding together a plurality of objects, interests and objectives of knowledge, of methodological approaches. The present volume intends to offer a contribution for comparison and deepening in reference to complex research situations, both for the plurality of the disciplines of knowledge involved, called to interact and converge in an integrated way starting from their paradigmatic and methodological anchors, and for nature of objects of study, configured starting from different knowledge needs and from variegated conceptual, epistemological and methodological organizations. The various contributions offer a cross-section of the different sensitivities and epistemological declinations that guide both the production of cognitive data that respects the complexity of reality and the analysis of data and their transformation into information capable of preserving this complexity.
