Abstract

The introduction begins by stressing a continued emphasis, consistent throughout Alexander Luria’s long career, on understanding people’s subjective formation in relation to their social and political environments, and it states the intention of Psychologies in Revolution to similarly contextualise Luria’s own work. The book begins by providing a brief sketch of Luria’s biography, noting that though Luria was not a fervent Marxist ideologue, his research was nonetheless influenced by the constantly shifting priorities of the Soviet state both practically and theoretically.
