This chapter, advancing Vygotsky’s original definitions, makes an important distinction between the two meanings of perezhivanie—perezhivanie as a psychological phenomena/process which can be empirically observed and studied(P1) and perezhivanie as a concept, a theoretical tool for analysis of the process of development (P2). The chapter is an attempt to unlock the theoretical content of the cultural-historical concept of perezhivanie in three interrelated dimensions, in relation to: (1) the concepts of social environment and interaction of present and deal forms; (2) the general genetic law of cultural development; (3) the idea of analysis of complex wholes by units. Advancing Vygotsky’s legacy, this chapter introduces a concept of dramatic perezhivanie which allows to discover the dialectics of the process of development of human mind as a sociocultural genesis both in evolutional and revolutionary aspects as well as in a unity of macro and microgenesis.
