This study aims to establish a conceptual and epistemological analysis of the scientific work of psychology today, in the light of the philosophy of science that seeks to base the scientific work of psychology, avoiding cognitive or theoretical biases to give way to a clear demarcation principle that delimits the propositions used by science in general. After that, an analysis of the object of study of psychology is presented that seeks to establish a principle of demarcation and production of protocol propositions that will generate a clear development of psycho-logical science and its action so that from there, an analysis can be made. of each of the elements that psychology must use for its justification in each of its fields, with the presentation of hypothetical and historical cases that allow to base the analytical journey of this article.
