Resumen

MEZA HUACUJA, Ivonne. Ezequiel A. Chávez and the Secularization of the Mexican Adolescent: Ensayo de psicología de la adolescencia (1928). Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2017, vol.38, n.150, pp.247-279. ISSN 2448-7554.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24901/rehs.v38i150.303.

In the late 19th century, new definitions of adolescence were introduced in Mexico through the educational system, novel descriptions based on scientific observations conceived from the perspective of the nascent fields of experimental psychology and medicine. The present study analyzes the proposals for adolescent education put forth by the Mexican professor, politician and psychologist Ezequiel A. Chávez. The main goal is to elucidate the impact of his book Ensayo de psicología de la adolescencia (An Assay in the Psychology of Adolescence, 1928), which was based on his courses on the “psychology of adolescence” given at the Escuela Normal Superior beginning in 1922. The article presents a case study which suggests that concepts of adolescence must be conceived historically because they reflect the concerns, beliefs and social and national projects of the groups involved in generating their different meanings.
