Murilo Dos Santos Moscheta: Advancing an aesthetic approach to human development

Fotos- Jornada de Psicoligia-22.10.12 055

Brazilian psychologist and International Class (2010) alumnus Murilo Dos Santos Moscheta recently published an article entitled, Performance and Identity:  Notes for an Aesthetic/Relational Appraisal of Development, which appears in the Brazilian journal Nova Perspectiva Sistêmica (NPS), out of Rio de Janeiro.

Dos Santos advocates for a postmodern, activity theoretic orientation to human development:

Modern scientific psychology has exalted the idea of identity and the individual…In this article, I consider identity from a postmodern perspective….I introduce Fred Newman  and  Lois Holzman’s portrayal of Lev Vygotsky’s activity theory and Marxist dialectics… I  consider human development within an aesthetic framework — in terms of creativity, process and improvisation.

Dos Santos is currently an adjunct professor in the Department of Psychology at the Universidade Estadual de Maringá.
