Abstract
The article examines the biography and scientific legacy of Eugenia Moiseevna Hanfmann (1905—1983), a Russian—American emigrant psychologist, specialist in the field of psychology of cognitive processes, psychopathology of thinking and psychological counseling. The article outlines her scientific activity in Germany and the USA and collaborations with K. Koffka, T. Dembo, D. Shakov, K. Goldstein, M. Rickers- Ovsiankina, J. Kasanin, H. Murray. It is argued that in her works Hanfmann further developed the ideas of L.S. Vygotsky: modified the method for concept formation (together with J. Kasanin), applied it to the study of conceptual thinking in patients with schizophrenia as well as to the study of personal patterns of intellectual performance, translated the work "Thinking and Speech" for the first time into English (1962), wrote a sketch on Vygotsky’s scientific activity, found the generality of both Vygotsky’s and K. Goldstein’s results of studies of conceptual thinking violations in patients with schizophrenia. Hanfmann was one of the few Vygotsky's followers in the Russian psychological community abroad.

Keywords: Vygotsky, Hanfmann, Russian psychological community abroad, method of artificial concept formation, schizophrenia, conceptual thinking
