The study of psychology for the uses of the state, for
industrial/labor purposes, for dealing with individual and ethnic
tensions has a long history in Russia. With the collapse of the
Soviet Union, Russian psychologists and scholars of the discipline
from outside Russia have had the opportunity to reexamine the
directions the discipline took as well as the directions likely to
result from the new academic and political environments. This
volume brings together many of the leading figures in contemporary
Russian psychology, who show how the discipline got to where it is
and examine what may result in the future.
The volume begins with essays examining historical background;
next the writers look at the period from 1985-1994 and its impact
on research opportunities. This discussion is followed by a review
of the major theoretical viewpoints and issues in contemporary
Russian psychology. By bringing together many of the leading
figures in Russian psychology, readers and researchers in
psychology have a unique insight into the state of the discipline
and its likely future directions.
