GARCIA, Luciano Nicolás. The psychological work of Aníbal Ponce. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 173-182. ISSN 1851-1686.

This work analyses the psychological work of Aníbal Ponce and its historical relevance for Argentinian psychology. An original segmentation of four parts of his work is proposed: a physiological psychology, a psychology of emotions, a developmental psychology and a psychology of adolescence. From this distinction, change of topics and methodology in his works are analysed, as well as its relation with Positivism and Marxism. It is considered the issue of the relation and importance of psychology in his intellectual production and its place in a history of psychology, psychiatry and psychopedagogy in Argentina. Finally, it is considered Ponce's work in terms of the introduction of themes and authors in Argentinian psychology, and possible lines of enquiry about the transcendence of his psychological work are suggested.

Keywords : History; Argentina; Development; Positivism; Marxism.
