Carlo Cattaneo e la psicologia delle menti associate (2019)


Carlo Cattaneo belongs to the cultural heritage of Italian history of the first half of the nineteenth century. He is commonly remembered as the promoter of the journal «The Polytechnic» and of the political theory of the confederate and Ghibelline state. Without detracting from these aspects of his thought, it should be remembered that Carlo Cattaneo developed the psychology of the associated minds, as it is found not only in the five memoirs presented between 1859 and 1866 at the headquarters of the Istituto Lombardo di Scienze Lettere e Arti, but also in the lessons he held from 1852 to 1865 at the Lugano high school. The Philosophy course, held in the Swiss city, was divided into five parts: cosmology, psychology, logic, ideology, law and ethics/morality. The cultural model Carlo Cattaneo developed preceded Moritz Lazarus and Heymann Steinthal’s elaboration of “social psychology” (Völkerpsychologie) and the launch of the «Zeitschrift für Völkerpsychologie und Sprachwissenschaft» in 1860. Cattaneo’s originality also consists in the fact that he returned to the contents of Vico’s New Science as a result of the teachings he received from Romagnosi. Thus the positive philosophy and psychology cultivated by Ardigò, was anticipated by Cattaneo, who therefore contributed to consolidating the national culture of his country even before it achieved political unity.
