GALLEGOS, Walter L. Arias. Honorio Delgado (1892-1969), an historical review about his life and work: about a hundred years of psychoanalysis in Peru. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.35, n.89, pp. 286-308. ISSN 1415-711X.

This article focuses on the life and work of Honorio Delgado Espinoza, a psychiatrist from Arequipa who occupies an important place in the history of psychology in Peru and psychiatry in Latin America. We briefly review his life and contribution to Philosophy, Education, and mainly for the Psychology in Peru. His spiritual and phenomenological conception of psychology, his approach to Freud, regarding the dissemination of psychoanalysis in Peru since 1915, as well as his separation from this school are analyzed in this article. It also presents his contribution as introducer of psychopharmacology in Peru, his role as a teacher and his theoretical formulations about mental illness. His academic and editorial work is also considered on the basis of several of his publications at national and international levels. This work aims to preserve in the memory of psychologists in Latin America this outstanding character, who was in many ways one of the psychology and psychiatry pioneers
