Abstract

This paper focuses on the organized working class of Santiago de Chile’s reception of the postulates of the psychological disciplines, specifically of mental hygiene. Focused on a historical reconstruction that takes on the communist, socialist and anarchist working-class press of the mid-twentieth century, the paper brings to light a concern about the mental consequences of capitalism on the working class. In this way, an alternative route to the history of psychological knowledge opens up, showing the agency of the popular metropolitan class in Chile.
