PORTUGAL, Francisco Teixeira. Psychology and history in social thought of Manoel Bomfim. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.2, pp. 596-612. ISSN 1808-4281.

This paper argues that it is important to reacess some psychological categories as thought by Manoel Bomfim in the early years of 20th century. Bomfim has shaped rich psychological conceptualizations in regard of its historical and social aspects. His major psychological work advocates a processual proposal of the mind allowing us to cease some of the remarkable oppositions still existent in psychology. They have been important since the institutionalization of the psychological field at the universities and they had put aside individual and socials aspects, as well as biological and psychological ones. This paper concludes showing how his psychological proposals reveal his engagement to social programs related to republican principles and educational projects.
