This final chapter brings together the outcomes of a dynamic dialogue on the concepts of emotions, perezhivanie and subjectivity. In drawing upon the content of the three sections in this book, the editors theorise the relations between the concepts introduced, building new theoretical insights, but also explicitly introducing methodological challenges yet to be faced by the cultural-historical community as they engage in research which draws upon these concepts. This chapter notes the controversies, the challenges, and the elaborations of Vygotsky’s original theory by advancing his legacy through a dialogue on the concepts of emotions, perizhivanie and subjectivity. This chapter does not resolve these, but rather opens up the dialogue, as has been the tradition in our cultural-historical community. In identifying emerging gaps in contemporary discussions of emotions, perezhivanie and subjectivity, this chapter contributes to furthering scholarship in our understandings of these concepts for the study of human development.
