The conclusion attempts to ask how Luria’s work might connect to debates about the brain today. It compares his insights to recent debates in Critical Neuroscience that seek to situate neuroscience in history. It also discusses Luria’s work in relation to the project of Critical Theory to ask whether it provides a compatible vision of human nature, concluding that Luria’s ‘romantic science’ might complicate the theories of nature associated with that tradition.
