Obukhova L.F., Ph.D. in Psychology, head of the Developmental psychology Department, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia, email@example.com
Galperin theory is a scientific system, which includes the solution of a number of theoretical and applied problems of general (genetic) psychology. Galperin has developed a new understanding of the subject of psychology; he has introduced a new method for studying mental processes and has built an integrated system of mental development in phylo- and ontogenesis. Galperin theory allows us to pose and readdress the fundamental problems of psychology - the interrelation of education and development, the role of action in the mental development of children, the pros and cons of the crosssection method and the method of systematic formation of mental actions. Galperin theory is an example of an authentic scientific thinking in psychology and its study forms a representation of the value of consistent and rigorous theoretical thinking of the researcher. Galperin theory makes a significant contribution to the development of cultural-historical theory.
