Alexander Romanovich Luria: a brief scientific biography
Languages of publication
Alexander Romanovich Luria is a person, who’s influence on the contemporary psychology is doubtless – literally each neuropsychological text contains some comments to his ideas. The range and novelty of his findings are widely known in Poland – at the same time there is not enough information about his private life, his career and factors or people that decided how his life looked like. The article is an attempt to present the main events of Luria’s life, the most important aspects of his theories and findings and all the backgrountd that made his one of the most important psychologists ever. It consists of the characteristics of Luria’s attitude to the science, descriptions of the main periods of his life and career, the most influantial publications and achievements. It’s aspiration is to give a brief portrait of Luria’s life that may be especially important for polish psychologists, who had waited a long time for such a publication.
