Article
This article proposes a very specific approach to music, defined as a cultural, material or symbolic tool that intermeshes with certain people’s life experience. From that standpoint, music may be seen as one of the essential keys for interpreting a biography. The theoretical argument, described from a cultural and mediational perspective, is exemp...

This is the purpose of this text, an approach to our being and to our sense in the world.

Article
Film music's role is primarily the accompaniment of the story on screen. The stabilization of this main function comes from the cue sheets, the kinotheks, and the manuals for ochestra conductors (Chion, 2010), that is, catalogues of scores which are related to a certain type of passions or affections (persecution, sadness, etc.) This catalogues of...

By means of this paper we are to introduce the German philologist Erwin Rohde and his work Psique: the idea of soul and immortality amongst the Greeks (1994 ), as an example of a way of approaching historiographical work which attempts to transcend the limits of disciplinary divisions. Psique, apart from being an excellent document about the arch...

This paper approaches identity as a psychological (both natural and cultural) phenomenon. This is done by relying on a theory of action which allows a transit from the biological to the semiotic and cultural (Rosa 2007a & 2007b) and assumes that alive beings construct the knowledge of the world they live in. Identity can only arise from action and...

Article
Este trabajo pretende proponer algunas de las condiciones formales básicas para una psicología del arte y la experiencia estética. La primera condición formal, de inspiración funcionalista, es que toda explicación psicológica debe ser necesariamente genética, es decir, ontogenética, filogenética, historiogenética y microgenética, al mismo tiempo. L...
Article
Several theoretical proposals have been put forth to explain Vertical-Horizontal illusion and Müller-Lyer illusion (VHI and MLI). A first set of explanations assumes that these two illusory effects are produced on the same operational level, whereas a second set proposes independent mechanisms. If the assumption of a single mechanism were true, the...

Article
This chapter argues for a historicist's attitude in the teaching of history. The works of Dilthey, Vico, and Ricoeur are contrasted with those of Hempel, and from the analysis it is concluded that while there are many possible goals of instruction in history, history teaching should empower the students to defend themselves from ready-made stories...
Article
Building upon Wassmann's (1995) dialogue, it is claimed that a debate between psychology and anthropology cannot be reduced to narrow issues of methodology. The core of the dialogue is in the conceptual domain-how does knowledge emerge, and what is its nature? Knowledge always appears situated in action, and the type of knowledge involved in the in...
