First International Symposium on

Dialectical Thinking

How does development happen? How does creativity work? What are the mechanisms and levels of transformation of contradictory situations? We think that dialectical thinking is a construct that can provide us with the key to understanding and answering multiple topical questions. Active research work in psychological science is being conducted all around the world. So we would really like the First International Symposium on Dialectical Thinking to become a common discussion platform both for researchers and practitioners. This is why such a significant amount of time in the agenda is given to the discussion of presentations. We would be happy if within those discussions a new promising direction emerges, the one to be called “dialectical psychology” and to integrate advanced ideas and inventions of all participants.

Russian science features a rich history of studies of dialectics. Nowadays a structural dialectical approach is developing rapidly in Russian psychology. The concept of dialectical thinking is the cornerstone within its framework, and it’s understood as handling with oppositions.

Here you can find publications of research works conducted by this psychological school.
