Vuvuzela Up close and personal by voltageek via FlickrCan you guess the date of the first African thesis in psychology?

I’ll tell you that it is really early – well before Wundt.

Now you can download (from the files below) the Life and Times of Anton Wilhem Amo who wrote the first known thesis in psychology by an African.  It’s a 2 page Word document.

  1. I am delighted to be associated with this information and source of knowledge . I am currently researching how many africans were taken from Africa and where were they settled in the Americas and Europe.

  2. Thank you for this Historic first and I would be delighted to kow more of all other firsts of early African academics.

  3. I don’t know of any others but we were able to get hold of a microfiche which we gave as a gift to the South African psychology association.
