The Genesis of the Primary Forms of Children's Personal Behavior in the Ontogenetic and Cultural-Historical Spheres 1858

Subbotsky E.V.
PhD in Psychology, Professor, Psychology Department, Lancaster University, UK, Great Britain

The article describes the early stages of child personality genesis in ontogenetic and cultural-psychological aspects. A key factor in the emergence of the first forms of personal behavior in the ontogenetic aspect is the altruistic style of adult-child communication that allows a child to include the moral norms of behavior in his/her self-esteem. The possibility of such an altruistic style of communication in the cultural-historical domain occurs when society reaches such a stage of development that a child does not have to work to meet his/her basic needs and a phenomenon of pre-school childhood occurs.

Keywords: Child Personality, Style of Communication, Moral Development, the Role of Culture

Column: Theory and Methodology
