Agustín Moreno: psicología científica y responsabilidad legal de la mujer en España

Javier Bandrés y Rafael Llavona

Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Agustín Moreno Rodríguez (1886-1967) estudió Medicina y Ciencias Naturales en la Universidad Central de España, en Madrid. Fue alumno de los doctores Luis Simarro, catedrático de Psicología Experimental, y Tomás Maestre, catedrático de Medicina Legal, Toxicología y Psiquiatría. En 1910 publicó el texto Responsabilidad civil y penal de la mujer durante el período menstrual. En este trabajo abordó la cuestión de la responsabilidad legal de la mujer basándose en el principio de excitación/reacción de Claude Bernard y en una versión personal del concepto de iteración elaborado por Luis Simarro. Moreno defiende asimismo la tesis de que la menstruación añade alguna particularidad al funcionalismo psíquico femenino y modifica, por tanto, la imputabilidad de las acciones de la mujer. Se comenta el enfoque predominante sobre la mente de la mujer en la psicología científica española de la época y la respuesta de las intelectuales feministas españolas.

Agustín Moreno: Scientific psychology and women’s legal responsibility in Spain. Agustín Moreno Rodríguez (1886-1967) studied Medicine and Natural Sciences at the Central University of Spain, in Madrid. He was a student of Dr. Luis Simarro, the University’s professor of Experimental Psychology and of Tomas Maestre, the University’s professor of Medical Law, Toxicology and Psychiatry. In 1910, he published the text The woman’s civil and penal responsibility during the menstrual period. In this work, he approaches the question of the legal responsibility of women, based on the principle of excitation/reaction of Claude Bernard and on his personal version of the concept of iteration elaborated by Luis Simarro. Dr. Moreno also defends the thesis that menstruation adds some uniqueness to the function of the feminine psyche and, therefore, modifies the responsibility of a woman’s actions. We also comment on the predominant approach to the mind of women in the Spanish scientific psychology of that time and the reaction of the Spanish feminist intellectuals.
