Evoluzionismo e gestaltismo. La psicologia della forma e il problema della genesi

Michele Gardini


This article carries out a critique of the abstract and disembodied character owned by the structures of the Psychology of Form. The Psychology of Form ignores and removes the genesis of forms, thus remaining trapped in the "dialectic of enlightenment" as described by Adorno and Horkheimer. Through the critical contribution of the works of Piaget and Eibl-Eibesfeldt, is brought to light that history of the relations between the individual and the environment which the Gestaltpsychologie finds only in his final static result.
