          Abstract

          The Spanish psychologist Miquel Siguan wrote in his biography that he never considered himself a psychologist in the strict sense (Siguan, 1984). He had a broad intellectual background and both entertained a constant interest and worked in different fields including philosophy, sociology, history and pedagogy. During his career, he would become one of the key figures in the history of psychology in Spain. He was part of a small group of psychologists who managed to institutionalize the discipline in the country after the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). In 1962 he became Professor of Psychology at the University of Barcelona and in the years that followed he was decisive in establishing and designing the degree in psychology at that university. At the beginning of his career he published on migration within post-war Spain, industrial psychology, and projective tests. Yet today, his later work on bilingualism is more widely known, especially among psychologists and psycholinguists. Throughout his life, Siguan contributed significantly to psychology in Spain, which was going through a disrupted and decisive period in its history. This article contains: a short, contextualized biography; a presentation of some of Siguan’s early contributions during the Franco regime and an overall assessment of his approach and personal memoir of this historical figure.

            Ortega y Gasset, la psicología y el psicoanálisis

            Ortega y Gasset no llegó a establecer un compromiso profundo con la psicología, manteniendo dos posturas a lo largo de su vida, primero un acercamiento fenomenológico y después una visión existencialista, sin que ninguna de ellas influyeran mucho entre sus coetáneos. Respecto al psicoanálisis adoptó una actitud ambivalente, disgustándole sus contenidos sexuales y sus debilidades científicas, aunque favoreciendo la traducción de las obras completas de Freud, al que una y otra vez alabó.

              Historiography of psychology in Spain: the last decade.

              History of psychology has been an extremely active field for many years in Spain. Both the great expansion of psychological studies and the inclusion of history as a compulsory subject in the psychology curriculum are crucial factors helping to understand the current state of affairs. The aim of this paper is to provide a survey of the work done in this area over the last decade, covering research, teaching, and institutional developments. The study includes consideration of aspects such as main research lines, major theoretical and methodological trends, teaching materials, relevant archives and exhibits, and significant websites.
