TALAK, Ana María. Philogenetic memory, evolution, and history in the former psychology in Argentina. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 199-205. ISSN 1851-1686.
This paper analyses specifically 1) the use of the concept of philogenetic memory in the argentine psychology at the beginnings of twentieth century; 2) the role of this notion in the explications of psychological development; and 3) its relationships with the notions of evolution and history in the psychosocial interpretation. It is argued here that the transformation of the memory in a biological object from an evolution theory frame, allowed a redefinition of this notion from a psychological perspective. This change included a particular way of understanding the no conscious representation in the explication of the general psychological development, by the authors of this time.
