Hello everyone!
Anton, thank you so very much for all of the information and support you are providing. You are helping so many of us in so many ways. The idea of having Russians send in their articles is simply wonderful. Mike, thank you for the YouTube idea, which will start a totally new way to communicate. Haydi, regarding the Sokolova article, I could not find it, but have a similar one. Perhaps someone could scan it and send it out. The article is “The Relationship between Vygotsky’s and Leont’ev’s Research Traditions as Revealed through an Analysis of Leont’ev’s Early Works.” (in Voices within Vygotsky’s Non-Classical Psychology: Past, present, future. 2002. Pp.63-76. Nova Science. A. Stetsenko and I edited this book, and there is another article by D. Leontiev discussing the connection between Vygotsky and A. N. Leontiev, and other articles by V. &nbsp;Zinchenko, and T. Akhutina, relating Vygotsky to Luria).
Elena Sokolova is a truly wonderful person, and works/publishes closely with D. Leontiev. Elena and Dimitry wrote an introduction together for the Journal of Russian and East European Psychology in 2005 (there are three issues offering some of A. N. Leontiev’s lectures, Vols. &nbsp;#3, 4, 5). I am attaching Elena Sokolova’s introduction in Russian. She often writes about the connection between Vygotsky and Activity Theory, and she also works with many people inside Moscow. I really think her voice should be read, and so appreciate the attention given to her. There are different opinions in Moscow about the connection of Vygotsky and Activity Theory, and I tried to say something about this in JREEP in March-April 2007 in an introduction to “Vygotsky: Exploring the Past.” (Vol. 45, Nr. 2). It can be found at:

In 2003-2004, Sasha organized evening lectures in Moscow, inviting almost all of the well-known psychologists to speak for a few hours each. They gave lectures not only to students, but to the public at large. Sasha has hours and hours of video footage. I also have hours of taping Russian psychologists that I made. I am hoping to find funding sometime, to get some of the tapes translated. This would be another project that could eventually go on YouTube…..things are really exciting on xmca right now! Thanks to everyone.
