Presentation title: “P.Y. Galperin’s Development of Human Mental Activity: implications for practice and research”.
In this presentation we introduce the book recently published in the series Cultural Psychology of Education (Springer): P. Y. Galperin Development of Human Mental Activity. The volume is composed of eight seminal lectures that have been translated into English for the first time and that comprise the Study of the Development of Human Mental Activity – one of the most fascinating concepts in educational and developmental psychology in the twentieth century. The book introduces the legacy of Piotr Galperin to a wider audience of researchers, educators and psychologists. This volume is intended to be of interest to readers concerned with the theoretical framings of learning and development, educational practitioners, and those who work within cultural-historical traditions. We also discuss the implications of Galperin’s conceptual contribution for educational practice and research.
