Gender Approach in the Context of L.S. Vygotsky's Cultural-Historical Psychology

926

Abstract

The paper compares the main ideas of the cultural-historical psychology with the theoretical foundations of a new scientific branch, gender researches in psychology. The author analyses one of the most well-known theories of the social construction of gender, S. Bem's «enculturated lens theory», and shows how similar these ideas are to the ones proposed by L.S. Vygotsky concerning, firstly, the development of human mind through 'ingrowing' into the culture, and secondly, the social formation of mind and gender.
