ASSIS, Raquel Martins de  e  MARTINS, Juliana de Souza. Culture and human development: knowledge published in 19th century Brazilian printing. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp. 663-680. ISSN 1808-4281.

The present article describes the results of a research on the fostering of the faculties of the soul and education in the 19th century printed culture, in Brazil, more specifically in the State of Minas Gerais. It is a study within the psychology of education aiming to investigate the relationship among human development concepts, intellectual and moral faculties and educating   discourse published in a journal. The text brings the analysis of the Secção Scientífica (Scientific Section) also named Pedagogy, written by José Miguel de Siqueira and published in the journal "O Baependyano" (1877-1889). In this Section, modern pedagogy is defined as the broadening and expansion of the forces of the human soul. The development, itself, is determined by innate aspects and conveyed by specific cultural forms. For the conceptualization of education, as well as culture, Siqueira takes the French ideas divulged at that time, in addition to traditions already quite settled in the region, such as the catholic ideas.

Palavras-chave : psychology history; 19th century; faculties of the soul; culture; human development.
