Chapter Summary

Vygotsky joined Alexander Romanovich Luria and Leontyev at the Moscow Institute of Psychology, and they began work under Kornilov, resulting in a stinging critique of Kornilov's own theory, Reactology, along lines not dissimilar to Vygotskys Congress speech. They had a thoroughly collaborative method of work inasmuch as they all shared a common project, and their individuality was immersed in that common project. The double-stimulation experiment opens up a wide range of possible research strategies to investigate the complex foundation on which human psychological functioning rests. It should be observed that the double stimulation experiment requires collaboration between the experimental subject and the researcher at two levels. Luria saw romantic science, in contrast to classical science, and along with his commitment to romantic science, he developed an interest in idiographic as opposed to nomothetic science, an interest which he claimed was shared by Vygotsky.

Keywords: Alexander Romanovich Luria; double-stimulation experiment; Kornilov; psychology; romantic science; Vygotsky
