Psychology in Argentina

WithHugo Klappenbach

Psychology in Argentina is quite different from psychology in other parts of the world, including other Latin American countries. The literature related to this subject is abundant, but is published mainly in Spanish, beginning with the pioneering works of H. Piñero, J. Ingenieros, I. Foradori, and R. Gotthelf, with important literature published during the 1970s through the 1980s (Ardila, 1979; Gentile, 1989; Papini, 1985; Vezzetti, 1988).
