L. S. Vygotsky and M. M. Bakhtin: Preparatory data to the dialogue which has not taken place

Comparative analysis of some aspects of L. S. Vygotsky's and M. M. Bakhtin's scientific heritage is presented. The author demonstrates important differences between these outstanding scientists due to the differences in their scientific outlook and understanding of human nature. On the other hand their views - just because of differences - are productively supplementing each other in many important spheres of creativity and art.
