Oscar Ichazo was born on the 24th of July, 1931 and died in March 2020. He was best known as Bolivian philosopher and an advocate of integral philosophy by many people. In his early life in Bolivia, Ichazo was principally based in Chile, that was where he founded the Arica School in the 1968. He lived his last decades in Hawaii.
The Arica School's origins began in 1956 when groups of people formed in major cities in South America to study the theory and method that Ichazo was proposing. For fourteen years these different groups studied his teachings. In 1968, Ichazo presented lectures on his theories of Protoanalysis and the ego-fixations at the Institute of Applied Psychology in Santiago, Chile.
