Why was G. I. Chelpanov discharged? (Historiography of the fact)

Traditional Soviet historiography of psychology has shown G. I. Chelpanov's discharge (1923) from the post of the head of Moscow Psychological Institute as a natural result of his defeat in the theoretical discussion with K. N. Kornilov. However historical facts (such as A. Zaikind's and P. Ef-russy's articles and newspaper reports on the First All-Russian psychoneurological congress, Moscow, January 1923) refute the traditional view on Kornilov's theoretical victory. The origin of this view relates back to the stereotyped ideological pattern of the inevitable victory of materialism in its struggle with idealism.
