Example text

Gal'perin's approach is based on Vygotsky, but presents, at the same time, an original theory. Firstly, this theory describes, at the philosophical level, the fundamental characteristics of human mental life. Secondly, the genesis and development of mental life are described in the context of phylogenetical, antbropogenetical and ontogenetical processes. Thirdly, a very concrete 'system of psychological conditions', as Gal'perin himself called it, allows for the formation of knowledge and skills and for the development of human action societally desired properties.

According to Vygotsky, the human being has formed new motives and needs in the course of historical development. It is to him that we owe the introduction of the historical principle in the domain of child psychology. He wrote: 'Up to now, the idea of historical psychology was conceived in a false light. Many psychologists identify history with the past. To investigate historically means for them to investigate facts of the past. It is naive to see an impenetrable wall between historical study and the study of existing forms.

In short, he revealed and fomlUlated the basic laws of the child's psychological development. His psychology was based on a profound philosophical analysis. Central questions were, how a human being could transcend his animal nature and how he could develop into a cultural and working being.
