GONZALEZ-RIVERA, Sofía. Written works in the Psychology Department of the University of Puerto Rico between 1924-1943: Preliminary Study. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.2, pp. 768-778. ISSN 1808-4281.

Through the analysis of the writing of those who worked in the first Psychology Department at Puerto Rico, we try to identify the characteristics of this discipline in the island between the years of 1924 through 1943. In order to interpret our first finding, this investigation takes into account the social-political context of the country. Several trends can be identified from the data collected: a strong development in the area of educational psychometrics, preference for the American functionalism system, a link with the Columbia University and the harmony between the interests of the Commissioner of Education and the empirical production of the faculty.
