PILAR : Croatian Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vol.I No.22 November 2006. -

There are three general goals towards which the author directed his attention.

The first relates to the actualisation of the fact that Pilar among other

things dealt in psychological analyses. The second relates to the actualisation

of the fact that he wrote a work some qualify as one of his main writing

achievements, based on which one may, with considerable theoretical

justification from a contemporary psychological perspective, assign him the

attribute of one of the pioneers of development of psychology, especially

social psychology in Croatia. The third refers to the actualisation of the fact

of Pilar’s inclination towards the application of theoretical achievements in

practice, and that is an approach which started to develop in social sciences

not earlier than in the second half of the twentieth century. A more

precise critical evaluation of Pilar’s contributions mentioned above that can

be placed within the framework of scientific psychology is yet to come.

However, it must be stressed in the end with sufficient certainty that by

systematically suppressing Pilar’s work Croatian psychology lost an important

referential and hypothetical stronghold which could have placed it at

the time of its emergence at the European level.
