Pioneers in teaching and researching history and philosophy of psychology – meet the boys and girls from Brazil

RioDr Gustavo Castañon is currently a visiting researcher at Durham University. His home university is University Federal de Juiz de Fora (UFJF), Brazil.

Gustavo is part of two research groups at UFJF,  the Wilhelm Wundt Centre for History and Philosophy of Psychology, and Centre of Research on Spirituality and Health. Gustavo is visiting Edinburgh this week, and I’ve asked Gustavo to speak to KPU about his group’s work in history and philosophy of psychology. Amongst other achievements, Gustavo and colleagues have established Brazil’s first graduate program for history and philosophy of psychology.

Gustavo is based in UFJF’s department of Philosophy. His colleagues are Saulo de Freitas Araujo, Fátima Siqueira Caropreso, and Richard Theisen Simanke, who are based in the UFJF’s dept of Psychology. To find out more about their group, read the abstract for a recent article about their work in History of Psychology, here.
