L. S. Vygotsky - a victim of "optical illusion"

The author's polemics with A. M. Etkind's understanding of L. S. Vygotsky's creative achievements as a result of different phychological schools interaction (A. Adier, S. Spielrein) and L. Trotsky's influence and iudeo-christian tradition is presented. Vygotsky's works and archive data show the inadequacy of such a view. L. S. Vygotsky's concepts assimilated natural-scientific (I. P. Pavlov, A. A. Uhtomsky) and cultural-historical (A. A. Potebnya, "formal" philological school. K. S. Stanislavsky) achievements of Russian mind, which were put into Marxist context in its application to psychology.
