Re: [xmca] Asking for the “piatiorka”

The fact is that "pyaterka" existed only during the years of the guys' studies in the 2nd Moscow University as an undergraduate seminar, and ceased to exist around 1930 when they graduated and dispersed all over the country.

At a later time--sooner or later--they all returned to Moscow to become fairly prominent scholars in the fields of defectology (R. Levina, Morozova), child upbringing (Bozhovich, Slavina) and psychology of movement, perception as well as the psychology of preschool development (Zaporozhets). 

However, a unifying research program shared by all of these individuals--other than their research under the supervision of Vygotsky and Luria in the end of 1920s (for a very brief and superficial account of the specific activities see A.R. Luria's memoires)--hardly ever existed.

Subject: [xmca] Asking for the “piatiorka”

Greetings, dear all,

Can you help with some historical information about the vygotskian “piatiorka” (Zaporozhets, Bozhovich, Morozova, Levina, Slavina)? Something about the group formation, beyond main research guidelines, and so on? About Zaporozhets and Bozhovich I have more information, but what news we have about the others? What was their actual role in soviet psychology? Any historical, biographical, bibliographical information? If there was a Kharkov School is correct to say that there was a Moscow School too? What the main epistemological distinctions, if there was some difference? Do you sugest some paper about?

Thank you very much.
