Culture as Self-Perception 213

Kudryavcev V.T., Ph.D. in Psychology, Professor, Head of the Department of Theory and History of Psychology L.S. Vygotsky Institute of Psychology, the Russian State Humanitarian University, Moscow, Russia, vtkud@mail.ru
Abstract
An attempt is made to operationalize the content of the “culture” concept in cultural-historical psychology. It is demonstrated that within its framework the culture appears to be a “social environment”, a system of social standards, rather than mediator of human freedom, as a way of self-perception of a man, which helps to reveal creative potential. According to the author, culture as self-perception, its genesis in this capacity, which results in the development of free man, is the basic idea of cultural-historical psychology. It is noted that culture, both historically and ontogenically, at least, in current historical settings, is initially created in personal form, only this enables it to acquire social significance. Culture does not only bring people together based on some formal characteristic, and within it people become significant for each other. The role of imagination in the formation of self-perception is discussed. An assumption on the availability of genetic relation between imagination and spontaneity is put forward. At that, special emphasis is placed on “experiments on consciousness”, including in the form of inversion, which are conducted by means of art.

Keywords: culture, self-perception, freedom, will, imagination, experiments on consciousness, inversion
